Break-up / along Came Polly

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
The inspired teaming of Ben Stiller with Jennifer Aniston makes this formulaic romantic comedy a whole lot better than it has any right to be -- in fact, it's the primary reason for the film's success. Stiller once again plays a hapless, neurotic Everyman; this time it's Reuben Feffer, a tightly wound insurance adjustor who specializes in risk assessment. After spending his entire adult life avoiding risk, Reuben decides to throw caution ...

The inspired teaming of Ben Stiller with Jennifer Aniston makes this formulaic romantic comedy a whole lot better than it has any right to be -- in fact, it's the primary reason for the film's success. Stiller once again plays a hapless, neurotic Everyman; this time it's Reuben Feffer, a tightly wound insurance adjustor who specializes in risk assessment. After spending his entire adult life avoiding risk, Reuben decides to throw caution to the winds after being cuckolded on his honeymoon. A chance meeting with former classmate Polly Parker Aniston, a kooky iconoclast whose life is as unstructured as Reuben's is regimented, results in an unlikely but hilarious courtship. The laughs come via his gradual, reluctant acceptance of her spontaneous lifestyle and devil-may-care attitude. John Hamburg, who previously directed Stiller in Zoolander and Meet the Parents, knows exactly how to handle his star and milk comedic situations for all they're worth. Comedy grounded in bodily functions dominates -- Reuben's irritable bowel syndrome makes his excursions to Polly's favorite ethnic restaurants the dietary equivalent of kamikaze missions -- but Hamburg knows how to rein Stiller in before his character's eccentricities become too off-putting. Aniston is ideally cast as the free-spirited Polly, and the supporting characters are top-notch, too. Philip Seymour Hoffman is hilarious as Reuben's best friend, a slovenly former child star whose comeback attempts seem doomed to failure. Alec Baldwin creates a memorable impression in his limited screen time as Feffer's boorish boss; Debra Messing is properly perky as the unfaithful bride; and Hank Azaria steals the few brief scenes in which he plays a French scuba instructor. Although it's not the most tasteful comedy you'll ever see, Along Came Polly remains extremely endearing: It reinforces Stiller's star status and suggests that Aniston's big-screen career may someday overshadow her work on Friends.
