Leaden romantic comedy about a former overweight "loser" (Ryan Reynolds) turned suave and successful ladies man, who, while waylaid in his New Jersey home town, pursues the affections of his high-school best friend and crush (Amy Smart), who back then only saw him through platonic eyes. Despite ending on an admirably sentimental note, director Roger Kumble's film is full of forced and witless humor that alternates between staggeringly unfunny and mean-spirited. Much cruel slapstick violence, some lewd sexual situations and humor, an erotic image, a crass sight gag, a brief same-sex kiss, an instance of rough language and some sexually crude remarks. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is L -- limited adult audience, films whose problematic content many adults would find troubling. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents are strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
