Along Came Polly (2004)

I watched the 2004 romantic comedy, directed by John Hamburg, produced by Danny DeVito (Reno 911, A Walk Among the Tombstones, Erin Brockovich, Man on the Moon, Get Shorty, Pulp Fiction, Reality Bites), Michael Shamburg (Erin Brockovich, The Big Chill, Pulp Fiction, Django Unchained, Reality Bites, A Walk Among the Tombstones, A Fish Called Wanda, Reno 911.) and Stacey Sher (Reno 911, A Walk Among the Tombstones, Django Unchained, Erin Brockovich, Matilda, Get Shorty, Reality Bites), “Along Came Polly” on Netflix DVD.

It stars Ben Stiller as Reuben Feffer, risk analyst for life insurance, who has his newlywed wife, Debra Messing as Lisa Kramer, cheat on him with the scuba instructor on their honeymoon. While trying to put his life back together he meets free spirited, waitress, Polly Prince, played by Jennifer Anniston.

He is insanely rigid and she is free spirited, and a little crazy, leading to hilarity in this fun movie. The movie stars Ben Stiller (Reality Bites, Happy Gilmore, There’s Something About Mary, Meet the Parents, Zoolander, The Royal Tenenbaums, Meet The Fockers, to name a few),

Jennifer Aniston (Friends, Office Space, Bruce Almighty. Horrible Bosses), Debra Messing (Will & Grace, Garfield, The Mothman Prophesies), Philip Seymour Hoffman (The Big Lebowski, Patch Adams, Almost Famous, Mission Impossible III,

Charlie Wilson’s War, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and Mockingjay -Parts 1 and 2) and Alec Baldwin (Beetlejuice, The Hunt for Red October, The Boss Baby, 30 Rock). I laughed a lot during this movie so I’ll give it 3.8 out of 5. I’ll give the extras on the DVD 4 out of 5. For more on this movie read Wikipedia, IMDB and Rotten Tomatoes.
