When 10-year-old Maya (Abigail Breslin of Little Miss Sunshine fame) pesters her dad Will (Ryan Reynolds, best known for his roles in National Lampoon's Van Wilder and Blade: Trinity) to explain the birds and the bees, he sidesteps the details. Instead, he tells her about the three women in his life, changing their names and asking Maya to guess which one is her mother. As her parents are getting a divorce, Maya knows there's no happy ending to the story, but is fascinated all the same. At the heart of Definitely Maybe's love mystery are the three very different women: Will's high-school sweetheart, Emily (Elizabeth Banks), perky political campaigner April (Isla Fisher) and brainy beauty Summer (Rachel Weisz). Told by Will in a series of flashbacks, the break-ups and reunions are played out in New York City against the backdrop of an election campaign and the following presidencies of Bill Clinton. Director Adam Brooks handles the on-off love affairs so well that you can't help rooting for the hapless young man when he's down-and-out in both love life and career. The viewer is keen to see if Will reunites with his one true love in the end. Definitely Maybe is a surprisingly sweet romantic comedy.
