starring Reese Witherspoon, Owen Wilson, Paul Rudd, Jack Nicholson
written and directed by James L. Brooks
by Angelo Muredda "We're all one small adjustment away from making our lives work," Paul Rudd's George chirps, a little too eagerly, in the interminable, banally titled, and curiously unpunctuated How Do You Know. It's a strange thing for an indicted man on the verge of financial ruin to say, but then How Do You Know is a strange movie, less the tidy romantic comedy its trailer pitches than a monument to the incidental pleasures of narrative ungainliness and lax comic timing.
