The Accidental Husband

So Netflix currently doesn't have "Accident," which brings us to
The Accidental Husband-2008, starring Uma Thurman, Colin Firth, and Jeffrey Dean Morgan

He says: Blue-collar guy sets out to get even with talk radio love expert after his fiancee dumps him due to the doc's glib on-the-air advice.  Insipid, aching-to-be-romantic comedy is a waste of talent on all fronts.  Released direct to DVD in the U.S.  1 and a half stars.

I say- While typing up his review, I noticed how often Maltin uses dashes.  "Blue-collar," "on-the-air," and "aching-to-be-romantic."  Noticed these in many reviews, but this is just ridiculous.  Moving on, this movie was semi-watchable.  Not as far-fetched as "Accepted," but still very unbelievable.  Felt that anyone could have predicted this, and Colin Firth was wasted.  2 stars.
