Download Along Came Polly
Can a risk-averse insurance salesman on the rebound from his bride's infidelity (during their honeymoon) find happiness with a waitress he knew in junior high who's averse to commitment? Reuben is a sweet klutz who's ready to settle down but sees in her a chance to recover from disappointment and have some fun; Polly is a sweet itinerant, not ready to settle down but sees a chance to spend time with a nice guy who likes her. What will he do when his bride comes crawling back? What will Polly do, when he runs the numbers and thinks she's a good risk? Sub-plots involve his self-centered pal, who's a has-been actor, and an assignment to assess the insurability of a balls-out Aussie.

Add to the list of people who saw this film under duress, as some friends and I decided just to go to tag along to see them. I was pleasantly surprised at this movie because I am not a big fan Stiller and Aniston can take or leave (just to see one of their previous rom-com perfect image).
It is one of the numbers, opposites attract perfectly acceptable-rom-com, with an unfortunate overlap of gross out humor that seems to have been added by someone along the way to change the tone of the film. However, this gross stuff is loaded at the beginning, so once that is how the two stars can get back to business - which is pushing and pulling each other up Stiller can "see the light. " Interesting how there is no attempt to show that Aniston has the character of or are interested in change, everything comes from the character of Stiller, which frankly is in a fine position in her life and does not really need the "wildness" Aniston is supposed to represent.
I was impressed by how they handle wandering-wife-is-again history presents itself, and very humbly asked forgiveness and sincerity that would have been better to go to counseling with her and continue with their life in the suburbs. But hey, everyone knows (in the movies, anyway) which is to spend his life with the person you like least. Har har har, good luck for that!
The story is not terribly involving, but for some reason Along Came Polly is fun. Ben Stiller has a gift that only being able to embarrass himself and the love for himself. You can not stop laughing. But the film is worth a look for Philip Seymour Hoffman, too, as the child actor still looking for recognition - and work. Basketball is a big stage, but the best is his performance with a community theater production of Jesus Christ Superstar. If you've ever been in community theater, or hung out with actors, you'll appreciate this.
