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.
