Ryan Gosling is similarly talented. I'm shocked he hasn't become a bankable star yet.
He was on the verge of that in 2004, but then he retreated into the indie fringe until this year; it earned him major acclaim as an actor, though, and an Oscar nomination. Now he's back doing studio films in addition to indie stuff.
It's a shame there are so many mediocre romantic comedies produced each year, and not more films like this one.
The co-directors of that previously did I Love You Phillip Morris (and wrote Bad Santa some years earlier), which I also really liked. I like what they bring to their movies, and they stand out in a genre that hasn't been reliably producing strong entries in about 20 years.
