For a heterosexist, heteronormative, Hollywood rom com, it was really well done. The lead (Anna Faris) and her supporting actor (Chris Evans, who, yes because of my SteveRogersandBuckyBarnes obsession was the whole reason I was watching the film) did a really, really nice job. The running gags were reasonably funny. The family interactions were, as far as these things go, believable-ish. It was about as feminist as a story about finding 'the [heterosexual] one' could be.

But the patness and the platitudes and the middle classness / privilege and the whiteness, my gods the whiteness, and aforementioned heterosexism and heteronormativity have left me feeing a bit down.
