Avoid at all costs drivel

Under no circumstances should you watch this film. The story & script are appalling & the acting painful.
It is a sad reflection on a film when you find yourself wishing the lead character would die as soon as possible within the first 5 minutes so that you can escape the steady drain on your enthusiasm to live that accompanies this celluoid calamity.
There are some fine actors in this film, Kathy Bates, Gael Garcia Bernal & to a lesser extent Whoopi Goldberg but alas they're all completely wasted. On the upside watching Gael Garcia Bernal spending his time looking continually petrified & as if he had jumped out an aeroplane & just realised his parachute wasnt opening was, at times, amusing.
Kate Hudson's portrayal & indeed Kate Hudson herself is the most irritating thing I have seen in a long time.

A no brainer chick flick, watchable.
