Screenwriter John Hamburg directs his second film (since his 1998 debut Safe Men) with the romantic comedy Along Came Polly. Ben Stiller plays Reuben Feffer, a professional risk assessor who never takes chances in any aspect of his life. When his new bride Lisa (Debra Messing) leaves him for a European scuba instructor named Claude (Hank Azaria), he finally decides to a risk of his own. At a party, he meets free-spirited Polly Prince (Jennifer Aniston), whom he remembers from his seventh-grade Model U.N. Unlike the control-freak Reuben, she's spent her life living on the edge. They reluctantly begin a romance and Polly introduces him to a new world of spicy food and suggestive dances. Along Came Polly also stars Philip Seymour Hoffman as Reuben's washed-up best friend Sandy Lyle and Alec Baldwin as the obnoxious insurance company boss Stan Indursky. ~ Andrea LeVasseur, All Movie Guide

Ferreting out a stinker by talltale May 31, 2004 - 10:35 AM PDT

One might describe ALONG CAME POLLY as a bad sitcom. This mess of a movie seems to revel in featuring a bunch of people who act and react in a manner that no one you've ever met would actually behave. Reason: the writer and director need to find some laughs, so they'll try ANYTHING to get them. The Stiller character is phobic--but only when it suits the script; the Aniston character can't commit to anything--but only when it suits the script; the Messing character--forget it, she has zero believability. On the plus side, there's a live ferret (who's cute) and Hank Azaria (also cute, buff and sporting a funny French accent). Otherwise, this one's a stinker, par excellence.
