There's only one explanation why of all things this romantic comedy made so much money at the box office: Diaz and Kutcher seem to possess enough star power to make the lowbrow moviegoer leave his money at the theaters blindly.

The movie does have its moments like the reclamation at the hotel or the first jokes the both of them play on each other. But these shallow romantic comedies seem to need two important ingredients which appear here as well, even if they're totally point- and senseless. Once there are the best friend - represented by the lousy acting Lake Bell on the one side and loser Rob Coddry on the other. Both of them have no purpose but to enhance the uninteresting main characters.
The other ingredient comes in form of more bizarre or known supporting characters and here one thing becomes clear: the only ones to really handle this genre are the English. Dennis Farina, Treat Williams, Krysten Ritter or Queen Latifah - none of these appearences is remarkable.

Diaz and Kutcher are committed, that is noticeable. But the story and everything around it stay uninteresting and the technical aspects of the production are often is the extended version which neither makes the movie any funnier nor better but only makes it two and a half minutes longer.

With 14 differences the extended version presents 2:42 minuten of new material.

As Jack talks to the concierge and tells him that men can enjoy God's most beautiful creation for three weeks a month and receive the bill in the fourth week the concierge replies (I know what you mean."

1 sec

After Jack and Joy broke up Jacks buddy tries to get her number because he wants to have a shot. In the theatrical version he pulls out his cell phone and as he notices that Jack doesn't react he puts it away again. The extended version stretches that scene. There's more material of Jack with tears in his eyes and Jack's buddy needs more time to figure out what's wrong.
Extended version is 11 sec longer
