We gave it a B

Will Kelly, still mooning over the title character who dumped him three years ago, spends the better part of a weekend on the phone — -mostly with a woman he hasn’t even met face-to-face — bemoaning his new teaching job, his lack of friends, his clingy current Fatal Attraction fling, and life in general. The British Gayle, a onetime advice columnist and magazine writer, has enough spark to keep up an unflagging pace, enough zip to keep the jokes coming, and enough of a sense of timing to call it quits while he — and Will — are ahead.
