Along Came Polly

While in his honeymoon in a paradisaical beach, the conservative risk analyst of an insurance company Reuben Feffer (Ben Stiller) finds his wife Lisa Kramer (Debra Messing) having intercourse with her scuba instructor Claude (Hank Azaria) in his boat. Reuben immediately returns to New York and his friend Sandy Lyle (Philip Seymour Hoffman) invites him to go to a party. There he meets his former high school friend Polly Prince (Jennifer Aniston) , who is a very independent woman that lives in the edge with her blind ferret in a cozy but simple apartment. Although having very different behaviors, they date and fell a great attraction for each other. When Lisa returns, Reuben has to decide if he wants to live his life in the suburb with his unfaithful wife, or have a risky relationship with Polly.

Ben Stiller made me laugh from the beginning to the end of this movie. Every character he meets is a complete nightmare for him and how he reacts and interacts with them is a joy to behold. Jennifer Aniston puts in a good performance as Polly who lives for today and doesn't care about tomorrow and Bryan Brown is fabulous as the daredevil businessman who wants Stiller to get him Life Insurance.A gem of a movie.
