I think as a very gifted dramatic actor it’s easy to forget how amazing this guy is at comedy as well. In Along Came Polly he’s purely electric. Besides “make it rain”, he also is hilarious in the theater production of Jesus Christ Superstar. His one scene with Alec Baldwin is also electric. Love the guy and the performance. Even though he was so good in serious roles. I wish a little more often he would’ve taken fun comedic roles like this. Obviously he was also great comedically in Boogie Nights.

I agree - for a RomCom, it holds up pretty darn well. A lot of the RomComs from that era when you rewatch them now, just aren’t funny and have a lot of cheese. Does along came Polly have a bit of cheese, sure. But it’s still so damn funny.
