Overview

Meet Bill

A henpecked husband locked in a dead-end job attempts to reclaim his life with a little help from a self-assured teen and a pretty lingerie sales girl in this bittersweet romantic comedy starring Aaron Eckhart, Elizabeth Banks, and Jessica Alba. Bill (Eckhart) is a walking doormat; his in-laws look down their noses at him, his wife, Jess (Banks), neglects him, and his love for chocolate is beginning to affect his waistline. When Bill discovers that Jess has recently struck up a "friendship" with hotshot local reporter Chip Johnson (Timothy Olyphant) that she can't quite explain, his fears that his wife may have strayed are quickly confirmed. One day, a group of kids from the mentor program show up at the bank Bill works at, and one particularly insightful boy (Logan Lerman) recognizes that all is not well with the hapless husband and banker. Convinced that all Bill needs to win his wife back and reclaim his life is a healthy shot of self-esteem, the quick-thinking teen teams with a perky lingerie sales girl named Lucy (Alba) to confront Bill's problems with humor and energy. In the process, Bill not only begins to break free from the inhibitions that have prevented him from achieving success in both his personal and professional lives, but also begins to realize his dreams of being financially independent and self-confident.

Okay, so there are a number of big name actors in this movie, but they just didn't seem to deliver. It wasn't their acting per se, more just that the script and the plot were a little, well, bad. I mean, I wanted it to be good, but it just never really went anywhere. And in the end, I didn't ever really feel any sympathy towards Bill because he kind of was a loser. Poor guy, and all, but... Anyway, it's okay if there's nothing else to watch, but I think one could do better.

The first time I saw this movie, my reaction was, "okay, well, that was good." But for some reason, by the time I'd gotten to (quite accidentally) seeing it the third time, I just LOVED it! Everything about it is funny, if you really watch it in relation to how people behave in the real world. The one-liners and facial expressions were fantastic. This movie is about US. It's about just regular old people, realizing one day that they've settled in pretty much every aspect of their lives. I highly recommend this movie - however, you'll get much more out of it if you see it more than once. Besides, the character known simply as "The Kid" is worth watching no matter what! And I don't know anyone who wouldn't laugh at and agree with Bill's "Working Sucks!!" speech!

Let me sum up quickly: there was a reason this was a direct-to-DVD movie. It's simply not very good. The script, direction and editing all conspire to put together a movie that lacks a real sense of direction, stumbles and meanders between major plot points and offers no real resolution or climax. It's not funny, enlightening, heartwarming or even entertaining. The only thing in this movie worth seeing is Elizabeth Banks quietly out-sexying everyone's favorite Hollywood hottie Jessica Alba. Don't spend the money on this one. Get something good and wait for this to show up as a Saturday afternoon movie on basic cable where it belongs.
