    "It's a complicated story about who loved whom first and who loved whom last but exactly who is Will's young, ten-year-old daughter, Maya's mother, right now? After all, she just learned in class today where babies truly come from and how they really get there, replete with the correct terminology. She is curious beyond belief within the cavalcade of upset kids and parents after school. Now, her thirty-something father Will Hayes (Ryan Renolds) has to figure out how to tell a mysterious story of three significant women in his life. These all before his daughter was even born and he must tell the PG version for Maya (Abigail Breslin). She asks pertinent questions to figure it all out. With mixed-up names and relationships with each woman, Maya pulls at the clues from her father as to which one of these three very different women of Manhattan is her mother... Maya has Emily (Elizabeth Banks) and April (Isla Fisher) and Summer (Rachel Weisz) to choose from in an oral puzzle that could get anyone all mixed up if we were not seeing it all play out in front of us... Maya is in the dark with no names that she knows, so, how would she know her soon to be divorced from her father - mother's name? These are difficult times to be a kid but with a great and fun Dad who sets her up like a princess in her bedroom to begin his tale. All questions are included and even encouraged in this story. A sweet, endearingly sassy (because of the father/daughter relationship), quizzical, and actually fun movie to watch and rewatch; a little cheeky in parts too. Also, With Kevin Kline in a bitingly sarcastic role as one of the women's professors and she is his girlfriend when Will meets her. He is irreverent and bitingly facetious. The wit which occurs in his role doesn't come along too often so I thought I should mention this great addition to this entertaining film of who's who. The game is on..."

    "This is a sweet romantic comedy. It's easy to pick out who will win the leading man's heart in the end, but it's still a great movie that's fun to watch. I liked how the ending came together. Glad I bought it. You can't go wrong with Ryan Reynolds, he is such an amazing actor and makes it feel very believable"

    "This is such a well-made romantic comedy, I can see people enjoying it for years to come. The acting is great and the script has plenty of funny lines. What sets it apart from other romantic comedies is the dive into serious themes without getting in the way of the comedy."
