Movie Review: How Do You Know? January 7, 2011

Netflix Synopsis: Forget friendly — the competition gets downright fierce when a hotly contested love triangle connects a newly single sports fan (Reese Witherspoon) with a professional baseball player (Owen Wilson) and a business executive (Paul Rudd) who are both vying to be her full-time boyfriend. Jack Nicholson co-stars in this athletically minded romantic comedy from acclaimed writer-director James L. Brooks (As Good As It Gets).

I think the above summary overly dramatizes this one. Unfortunately, this movie was very light and predictable. At times there was a little suspense, but overall the storyline was weak and not very exciting. Owen Wilson plays his standard clueless role and Witherspoon walked a fine line between her strong self and an indecisive 30-something. I liked it, but we should have waited until it came out on DVD instead of this being one of our two trips to the theater this year.
