Eventually these lifelong friends gave in to the sexual chemistry between them and began to have spontaneous sex.

Best part of story, including ending: I really enjoyed this movie because it relates well to what many people in life experience. It was filled with humor and kept me interested in wanting to know what was going to happen between the two characters.

Best scene in story: My favorite scene would be when Adam holds a balloon with Congrats on it and Emma says, " Congrats? for what? Having sex with you? and Adam replies with, " Yeah. You did a really good job so I thought you deserved a balloon."

Opinion about the main character: What I enjoyed about the main character is how funny he is. His character keeps you engaged in the movie.
