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.

The movie is obviously not a masterpiece, but totally watchable.

I saw this in theaters and thought it was really lame. Not very funny, and as others above have said, the chemistry bewteen Jen and Ben was null. I was, however, also on a bad date, so perhaps that colored my viewing of the movie. Haha.

I agree with annaerkul. I was surprised to see it being recommended because it is duller than dull. But Buzz is right about the supporting actors. Ben and Jennifer have zero chemistry and couldn't even fake it!

I was pleasantly surprised when I saw this movie. It was funny! And Hank Azaria is great, as always. And so built!

I like this movie. I love Hank Azaria's character. And of course Philip Seymour Hoffman. I know it's really immature and childish but when he says "I just sharted" and then explained what that was, I almost passed out laughing!:ROTFL:

I just watched this movie and it was cute, but it definitely isn't amongst my favorites. I need that chemistry between Jen and Ben and it wasn't there!

I LOVE this movie so much. I do agree mwmsjuly, the diarrhea jokes were a little much.

Hoffman is funny, but I hated the scatalogical humor in this movie. I don't laugh at gas and diarrhea jokes. Too gross to be funny to me.

I have tivo'd this movie from HBO literally just to watch the PSH (aka Sandy Lyle) scenes. That character has got to be one of the funniest sidekick characters ever! Raindance!
