I have not been to the theatre in a good long while. However I watched on the plane ride to Calfornia the movie How Do You Know with Reece Witherspoon, Paul Rudd, Jack Nicholson and Owen Wilson. I am not sure that I have seen a more contrived premise to a movie in a long while. I also feel that most of the dialogue was completely inane. Poor Reece plays an aging Women’s Softball star who has totally focused on her baseball. Now she is going to get cut. Looks like her Mom (??!) is part of the team of coaches that makes that decision, or hears it from the coach anyway. Then there’s Paul Rudd who is the son to businessman Nicholson. Suffice it to say that there is some drama in his life, and he has a Meet Cute with Reece, and then not. Wilson (who you KNOW I am not a fan of) plays a baseball player in the Majors, playing for the Washington Nationals. I’ll believe THAT when pigs sprout wings and fly. Just look at him in the uniform and you realize that this guy can’t possibly throw a pitch 94 mph. He has NO chemistry with Witherspoon, and is generally despicable. Why ANY women would want to be with him here is beyond my pay grade. Money sure, but nothing else.
To sum up, this is terrible, with no real resolution to Dad’s troubles, but quite frankly I didn’t care.
Shame on all who were involved in this fiasco.
