HOW DO YOU KNOW
I'm not a huge fan Owen Wilson, but I am a fan of Reese Witherspoon, and HOW DO YOU KNOW sounded like a movie I'd like. The storyline is unique and plays out wonderfully with just the right amount of comedy and romance to make it believable. HOW DO YOU KNOW is well acted with charming characters that will pull you into their story right from the beginning, all the way through to the end.
Lisa, played by Reese Witherspoon, is cut from a national softball team. Shortly after this happens, she meets major-league pitcher Matty, played by Owen Wilson. With his goofy antics, he wins over her heart and in a snap decision, moves in.
Then enters George, played by Paul Rudd. George has been accused of tax fraud while working for his father's company, played by Jack Nicholson. What starts out as a friendship between Lisa and George slowly turns to love. Matty however is clueless, which adds to the humorous love triangle.
The writers did an amazing job in pulling off George's unique situation with a surprising and believable ending. A movie you won't want to miss.
