What’s the difference between how men and women view relationships? The answer is purported to be here in this romantic comedy, where opposing journalists  and  examine the events that comprised their relationship. The same scenes are played out twice, once from his viewpoint, and then again from hers, and here lies the problem with why this movie isn’t so great: though some minor details are different, and some of those are actually funny, the overall effect you are left with is basically that you’ve just watched the same movie twice; the two sides just aren’t different enough to make it a clever idea. Watch Sliding Doors for a similar gimmick done well. Sharon Stone appears in an early film role as a bitchy blonde in a killer suit.
