It’s not very often that a movie is better and more appealing than its trailer, but this rom-com from ‘Big Time Adolescence’ director Jason Orley sure is. The clunky, borderline ridiculous teaser shows a sociopathic pair of jilted losers (Jenny Slate, Charlie Day) banding together to help the other get his/her ex back. What it fails to show us, though, is what the movie actually has—a decent level of heart and also smart writing that elevates it from pseudo-Hallmark crap into a (surprisingly) quirky and fun treat.

3/5 stars
