Love Triangle and its Twists: How Do You Know

Lisa (Reese Witherspoon) is a player from the US National Softball Team. When she was considered “old” to play for the team, she gets cut from the program and tries to rediscover her life goals. But her life took a slight curve when she started dating Matty, (Owen Wilson) a goofy and shallow baseball pitcher whom she thought was just good for her – a no strings attached relationship for the meantime.

As she figures out how crappy her situation is, Lisa also met George, (Paul Rudd) a businessman dealing with a problematic lawsuit but has an attitude of running away with his problems. In the middle of all their dilemmas, they all found themselves in a middle of a love triangle.

This movie deals with, well, problems. One doesn’t want to talk, one literally runs away from all the talk, and the other’s just there to prettify the screen. I love Reese Witherspoon and all her movies but this one kind of sets back the whole Girl Power thing she’s possessing in every movie.

It’s simple and precise. Though if it weren’t for Reese, I probably wouldn’t see it. A half and a laugh though to Owen Wilson’s character, especially his crazy antics. Best for moviegoers who needs a feel good love story chick flick. 3 Stars for this film.
