Quotes

Wade Handler: Did you think it was odd that, he still liked her a lot, and she hadn't really show him any real interest in over two years?
Mousy Julie: I thought it was the opposite of odd. Guys are drawn to her like bugs surround a bug lamp. For four years I've had the privilege of watching it.

i found it mostly non-believable,pointless and confusing
16 December 2007 | by disdressed12See all my reviews

mostly i found this movie non-believable,pointless and confusing.i didn't find it really predictable,but most people probably will.the acting was OK,but not great.Zooey Deschanel was the only bright spot,in my opinion.Benjamin Bratt appeared in the movie and was adequate.Katie Holmes was supposed to be the star,i think.i found her sub par,as usual.i don't really like her that much,and have yet to see he in a good movie.or rather i have yet to see her put in a good performance in a movie.the ending was something most people will probably see coming a mile away.it's not something i predicted,but it wasn't surprising either.my vote for Abandon is a 4/10
