Definitely, Maybe

Ryan Reynolds plays a 30-something politician in the midst of divorce. His 10-year-old daughter Maya (Little Miss Sunshine's Abigail Breslin) wants to know the story of how her parents fell in love.

The story goes back to 1992, when Reynolds was young and idealistic and still didn't know who Nirvana was. To soften the story, he changes the names of the women he loved, and Maya has to guess which one he married. Could it be the childhood sweetheart (Elizabeth Banks), the best-friend and confidant (Isla Fisher), or the attractive journalist (Rachel Weisz)?

The best romantic comedy so far this year is Definitely, Maybe by a winning mile. By combining likeable characters with a reasonably tricky storyline, nobody’s going to feel cheated or nauseous by the time the end credits roll.

A nimble and winning little romance.

As the movie is really about a character's growing into his own truth rather than discovering some preordained truth, Definitely, Maybe is hard to outguess. For once in a romantic comedy you won't be able to tell after five minutes who will end up together.

Elizabeth Banks is better than good, Isla Fisher is better than funny, and Rachel Weisz, who hasn't been treated well by Hollywood (yikes, Eragon and Fred Claus) since she won an Oscar for The Constant Gardener, is a constant goddess.

Smarter than your average bear, this movie doesn't completely insult your intelligence, the characters are accessible, the relationships are grown-up, and like real relationships, are flawed and a little complicated.

Sweet, funny, simple, entertaining — everything a good rom-com should be. Definitely...

The romantic-comedy genre attracts a lot of flack, but frankly, a lot of it is earned. I took a female friend along to this film thinking it might be a fun girls' night out, but we both agreed, we'd seen better, including the not great, but at least intermittently funny, Run Fatboy Run. If you prefer your love stories with a sprinkling of humour, I'd definitely recommend that one over this – no maybe about it.

A romantic comedy that manages to be cute without sending viewers barrelling into the bathroom to toss their cookies.
