I thought Vince Vaughn did a great job! (minor spoiler)
As corny as his character could have been (and was) I thought he pulled of every part of his character's scenes excellently.
Jennifer did good too, but Vince's performance surprised me the most. Without getting into spoilers, Vince played the egregious boyfriend very well (as usual) but he also played the serious side of the character well (that surprised me).
Even though a joke would be predictable, Vince and the cast pulled it off well so as to make it very funny and seemingly original.
As usual with American audience targeted films, they could have ended it without the very last scene. In my opinion the movie would have been just as good ending after the fade-to-black in the apartment, 2 scenes before the credits rolled.
