Paul Rudd fails to fulfill his leading man potential...

How Do You Know review

There was a time (circa Clueless) when Paul Rudd looked like a romcom leading man ready to bloom.

Then Judd Apatow sidetracked him into a series of hen-pecked married roles and his sexy stock took a nosedive.

James L Brooks’ latest dramedy should have been the perfect reintroduction; he stars opposite genre stalwart Reese Witherspoon as a businessman pushed to crisis point by the dodgy dealings of his father (an underused Jack Nicholson).

Sadly Brooks’ self-help script is lacking in gags and too weighed down with therapy speak to sparkle.
