Reuben (Ben) is dumped on his honeymoon when his wife runs off with the scuba instructor. He meets a former classmate Polly (Jen) who is very wild and different. Jen is always typecast so it is nice to see her in a more hippy chick role. Ben is awkward and funny as usual. Very li...

Nothing special. For some reason, Reuben (Ben Stiller) decides to date Polly (Jennifer Aniston). For some other reason, opposites attract. "Along came Polly" reminds me of another Aniston movie - "Friends wuth Money".

Well meaning but ultimately stilted (and supposedly) comic piece about opposites attracting that sadly fails. Hoffman (unusally cast), Baldwin and Azaria endeavour mightily to raise the dead here in secondary roles but the film's strict adherence to the well worn formula kills a...

One of the more entertaining Ben Stiller films and one I find Jennifer Aniston enjoyable in. Yes lots of cornyness and predictability, but also quirky and feel good too.

Along Came Polly was a disappointment for me. I expected something very funny, and very well done. Unfortunately this film has minor laughs and wasted good cast on a terrible film. This film could have been much better, unfortunately it misses the mark. Along Came Polly could hav...

Very light-hearted romantic comedy. I adore Jennifer Aniston and I think Ben Stiller is hilarious espicially his father (watch Seinfeld!). Overall I would recommend this to people who want to get a good laugh. You'll also get a laugh out of Phillip Seymour Hoffman. Crocodile Te...

I just didn't get it. So Jennifer Aniston is supposed to be free-spirited because she likes Indian food? And Ben Stiller is a planner because he farts when he eats it? Not to mention their chemistry totally, totally doesn't work out - but that seems to be the least of this uneven...
