It wasn't really a bad movie, but not a directly good movie either. I really found Linda to be way out of character when she had Will in her classroom. I understand she had to do something wrong for there to be drama in the plot, but I just really didn't like it. I just think that it could've been handled in a better way. I was also curious, did they use protection? I felt almost certain that in one point of the movie she would find out that she was pregnant or something.

I really liked Mr. Sherwood's character though, and Nathan Lane is always humorous to watch :)

Also, Lily Collin portrayed Halle Anderson, and I just hated that character with passion. She did not deserve to be cast as the main role in that play, she was, excuse my french, a real bitch, way to mean for me to like her. She found it way to easy to humiliate Linda, it got me so mad.

I really liked the ending though, how Linda thought the play should've ended, it really made the movie worth watching.
