TRIAL AND ERROR: 5.5

This movie just doesn't quite cut the mustard. Basically a double romantic comedy which is light on both counts. There are some brief laughs (more chuckles, really), but with a lot of dead space in between. Too bad, because it was a fun plot with a couple of sub-plots going on; if there had been more and better laughs it could have been a terrific movie.
