Definitely, Maybe Marianne Ross
A strange one; on paper this looks fabulous: a cast of wonderful actresses; Abigail Breslin (the little girl who wants to hear about how her Dad and Mum got together), and the three women in the life of Ryan Reynolds, (as Will, her Dad): Isla Fisher, Rachel Weisz, and Elizabeth Banks; plus an unusual set up. Using flashback means that as we see Reynolds" character Will"s life unfold, in retrospect, we aren"t sure which of the three is mother to Breslin"s character, Maya.
Cleverly executed, you"re just beginning to get drawn into each relationship scenario, when the film pulls back to present day. There"s a great cameo midway through from Kevin Kline as well, which in fact injects some much needed pace into the film.
That"s where I think the problem lies; great idea, but not particularly well thought through; I found it quite a slow film, without enough reason to like or be interested in any of the characters" fates. With insufficient depth to any of the three women"s characters, and not enough comedy to move the film along, it does tend to drag. Interesting but flawed.
