I was told to hope for the best, of course, but be prepared for the worst: an insipid romantic comedy chock-full of thin performances, clichés, and predictable plot twists. A movie that would bore men and insult women’s intelligence.
— Emily Giffin, author of Something Borrowed, in her Entertainment Weekly guest column. I’m sorry, Emily, but if I’m not mistaken your book insults women’s intelligence, is insipid, and chock-full of clichés. She went on to say that she was very pleased with the creative process and the final product, but the fact that a chick lit author felt she was creating literature that mainstream romantic comedies would bastardize makes me cringe.
