Good watch, could watch again, and can recommend. Jennifer Lopez pretty much carries this movie, despite all the great characters created to prod her further in the story, to include Bob Hoskins. He was good, not phenomenal, but I miss Bob Hoskins. The overall story is actually pretty well written, and most of the character dialogue / interaction is cute, but the working vs elite battle to bridge trope is a little heavy for a romantic comedy. And then the resolution is that Jennifer Lopez is just that hot. I hope that wasn't a spoiler for someone, because it's really not. I honestly wish we had gotten a little bit more out of the pursuit of a woman he didn't know and more action out of the bad guy, but for the stereotypical elite, "I'm going to have you fired, do you know who I am?" seems appropriate enough, right? While I do think it is worth a watch, there are a lot of other things out there to watch, just not "Gigli" or "The Wedding Planner".
