What to Netflix: Along Came Polly


In continuance of the Sugar network's wedding season coverage, this week we're focusing on all things honeymoon. Today I'm kicking things off by recommending Along Came Polly, all about a romance that wouldn't have occurred if it weren't for a botched honeymoon.

Ben Stiller plays the uptight Reuben whose job as an insurance risk assessment analyst has caused him to be extra-careful in life. After his new wife (Debra Messing) cheats on him during their honeymoon, Reuben reconnects with Polly (Jennifer Aniston), a free-spirited commitment-phobe he knew in junior high. A classic tale of opposites attracting, Reuben and Polly eventually hit it off. The main duo don't exactly electrify the screen with their chemistry, but I find the supporting actors (especially Hank Azaria, Alec Baldwin and Philip Seymour Hoffman) to be more than worth the watch.
