The film has a large and somewhat talented cast, yes even including Dennis Quaid, but they don't really do anything with them and they, quite frankly, exploit the women in the movie just for George to have some conquests. The lives of these women don't really matter, once George is done with them they're thrown away like trash.
It's almost something out of a completely different movie since the story does have to do with George trying to make a better life for his son and that idea is solid, but then he goes around fucking every woman he comes into contact with. I just think they were there to pad the length of the movie, because this parts of the film, with George planting his seed with every woman he comes into contact with, are completely useless in the large scheme of the story.

They do tie it to the main story in such a lazy way, it's like why even do it? It's not effective and it only serves to create unnecessary drama. I do like the idea of a man who's been an absentee father almost all his life FINALLY trying to do something for his son, but the execution in this movie is absolutely terrible. Humorless and terrible.
If you want to watch a really good romantic comedy, that doesn't treat most of its women characters as sex objects, go watch Celeste and Jesse Forever, that's a great movie.
It's not as bad as I was expecting, but it is pretty terrible as nothing really works. If you want something romantic to watch with your significant other, this movie is NOT it.
