M: Chris Rock is so funny.
W: Totally. Watching this movie is like watching Rock do his stand-up.
M: I wish the execs let him do more improvisation. I wanted to see him tell off more people. You could tell he was holding back sometimes to stay in character as Richard Cooper.
W: Steve Buscemi is also comical, in a creepy sort of way. He fits his character, George to a tee. He can't help but come off as sleazy. Maybe it's his eyes but he looks like he has extramarital affairs.
M: He can make me laugh with one look.
W: I had problems with Kerry Washington.
M: You're just hating. She was amazing. Those legs. Those lips. That skin. Are we talking about the same Kerry Washington?
W: You're talking about the way the real Kerry Washington looks. I agree she's a bombshell. I'm talking about the character she played, Nikki Tru. She was totally trying to disrupt Cooper's happy family, a Tru homewrecker. She was totally pursuing him – aggressively.
M: Now don't blame everything on Nikki. It takes two to tango, as they say. Cooper was BORED. And Nikki was a breath of fresh air. I could relate.
W: But you can't put it all on the woman to keep the sparks flying in a relationship. Maybe Cooper wasn't doing everything he could to keep the fires burning at home. To me, it was just obvious Nikki was needy and searching for a savior, and she found the perfect sucker: Cooper. Even after he got beat up and was put on probation at work, he didn't cut her off completely. Arrrgggh!
M: Hey, like they said in the movie, when two people are attracted to each other, things get out of control.
W: Hmmmph. Well, like they also said in the movie when Cooper was fantasizing about being stag again, when you're single, you're alone!
