Seriously, it is the perfect date movie. JGL is one of the best actors of our generation, and Zooey will rope in any guy who thinks chick flicks are just for chicks. You can probably watch this movie over and over again and get a different perspective each time. You NEED to have this in your collection…you WANT to have this in your collection. Trust us, this is the flick that will remind you why you actually enjoy watching movies with your girl. Her taste isn’t as bad as you think!
