A refreshing romantic comedy told from the guy's perspective.

Playing It Cool tells the story of a guy(Chris Evans), who doesn't believe in love. He is a screenwriter by profession. He is told to write a script for a romantic comedy by his boss, Bryan(Anthony Mackie). Being someone who doesn't believe in the concept of falling in love but would rather keep it casual with every girl he meets, he struggles to write the script. He seeks ideas & inspiration from his group of friends including, Scott(Topher Grace), Mallory(Aubrey Plaza), Lyle(Martin Starr), & Samson(Luke Wilson) on matters regarding love. However, he fails to get inspired. When a woman(Michelle Monaghan) enters his life, he starts falling for her. However, things get complicated when he finds out that she's in a relationship with a guy named Stuffy(Ioan Gruffudd).

Playing It Cool is my new favorite romantic comedy. Though the ending is predictable & follows the classic romantic comedy formula, the movie itself rarely goes in the direction of clichés. Even when it does, the characters of the film are very aware of it & mock themselves or others for it. Another thing I love about the movie is that it's a romantic comedy told from the male perspective. This film is totally out of the box because till the end of the movie, we never find out the hero & heroine's names. I don't think this has ever been done before. Chris Evans is unforgettable as the Narrator. It's nice to see Evans play a character who is a player & a habitual liar, which is the complete opposite of Steve Rogers/Captain America, his most famous character. Evans excels not just in the comedic moments but, in the emotional scenes as well. Evans' narration is the heart & soul of the film. Michelle Monaghan is outstanding as Her. The chemistry between Chris Evans & Michelle Monaghan is natural & electrifying. Topher Grace is great as Scott. Aubrey Plaza is brilliant as Mallory. Martin Starr is hilarious as Lyle. Luke Wilson is good as Samson. Ioan Gruffudd is impressive as Stuffy. Philip Baker Hall is spectacular as Granddad. Anthony Mackie is awesome as Bryan. The supporting characters are effective. Playing It Cool is a must watch for women who love romantic comedies & men who are skeptical of them.

Just wow

This movie left me speechless it was so bad. It took me a while to be able to review it since it was so bad I had no idea where to begin.

Well first of all a DOUCHBAG of a guy, yes I do not root for this @ss#0le at all, pretty much uses/lies to/abuses women. Why? Because his mother left him as a kid? REALLY? LOL MOST people have no real parents these days. Divorce rate is 50%. You MOSTLY have 1 parent most of the time.

SO.... the writers EXPECT the viewer to root for this self-obsessed spoiled brat!? The main character is suffering from what best can be called "Entitled spoiled whiny stupid white boy syndrome." You know those guys that expect the world to revolve around THEM! Wow just disgusting.....

He basically USES women as physical objects for his own gain ONLY, then whines/rants about how he has all these problems. So....everyone should care about you and no one else? Don't these women have problems as well? What about their feelings? Oh right sexism....who cares, just terrible.

As always with "Entitled spoiled whiny stupid white boy syndrome" the subject just expects everything to fall into his lap. He takes a liking to a girl at an event, RIGHT AFTER insulting all the women at said event to be repulsive...wow. She is in a relationship. So what does our subject do, steal her away! Wow classic "Entitled spoiled whiny stupid white boy syndrome!"

Here is what the writers do, ACTUALLY MAKE THE WORLD REVOLVE AROUND HIM. A woman would NEVER go with a guy that INSULTED her. They make her bf a worse man than our main subject. And the girl that is apparently 'in love' with our subject helps him to get this girl? Wow talk about wishful thinking. These things never happen...

More gross things going on in this movie, everyone smokes...disgusting the encouragement of MORE bad behavior. Drink all your problems away...what? Just when it could not get any worse it does! He plans to ruin her wedding! Wow and of course she does not go through with it...random. Bad writing again. This whole movie is warped beyond any realism. NONE of these characters are real. They are even worse than a FANTASY movie. I mean like Harry Potter, at least the characters can exist minus all the magic....

I am assuming it was movies/media like this that encouraged shooters like Elliot Rodger to kill. "Why don't women come up to me?" He actually said it 'happened in the movies.' How sad movies like these exist and some people take them seriously. ENOUGH Hollywood, we see though your (rap. Stop making TOTALLY unrealistic movies. Yes, it's a 'rom-com' but this is too big a pill of lies to swallow!

Expected Better! 4/10

Review: I really wasn't that impressed with this film because it seemed to be going nowhere, right from the very beginning. Chris Evans plays a womanising writer who is struggling to come up with an idea for a Rom-Com. His agent promises him an action movie as his next project, if he produces the script but he is having problems with his personal love life because he can't get the woman that he really loves. The woman, played by Michelle Monaghan, already has a boyfriend so she becomes best friends with Chris Evans who can't get her out of his mind. His best friends try to help him through his emotional situation but his usual charms don't seem to work on Monaghan. I personally got fed up with the movie because Chris Evans just seems to be whining and moaning from one scene to the next. The director tried his best to keep the movie fresh by creating scenes from what is going on Evans crazy mind, but it's a basic Rom-Com which is corny and not that funny. The whole love story is quite boring, which is a shame because I liked the chemistry between the different characters. I was hoping for something a little different from this film but I struggled to stay interested and the constant whinging got on my nerves. Disappointing!

Round-Up: I doubt that this small movie will damage Chris Evans career, after playing Captain America and the Human Torch in Fantastic Four, but it does show that he's not that great when it comes to Rom-Com's or anything without action in it. At 33, he must be laughing all the way to the bank because he also plays a big part in the Avengers franchise so this project must have pretty small compared to what he is used to. I'm just scared that he will get stuck when the big budget movies dry out. Personally, I like his cocky and self confident style of acting but he plays the same type of characters in all of his roles. He does show some emotion in the Captain America franchise and I really liked him in Injustice but he needs to come away from the comedies and action movies for a while to show that he has some more tools in the box.

I recommend this movie to people who are into their Rom-Com's about a writer who meets a woman at a party and falls head over heals in love with her but she is promised to another so he tries his best to win her heart. 4/10
