Along Came Polly

Light, easygoing comedy romance about uptight insurance risk assessor Reuben Feffer (Ben Stiller), who starts going out with flaky free spirit Polly Prince (Jennifer Aniston) after his wife leaves him for their scuba instructor on their honeymoon. Ben Stiller is good as usual, and Philip Seymour Hoffman runs an amusing (though mostly irrelevant) sub-plot as Reuben’s failed actor friend. Watch out for some nice touches by Hank Azaria as the scuba guy, and Bryan Brown as the extreme sports nutter Reuben is trying to insure. It’s simple but funny, and the perfect antidote to a cold and dark winter evening.
