Best part of story, including ending: Because most of the bromance movies I've seen mostly feature frat boys, or man-children, these guys are a little more grown-up, or are at least trying to navigate their adult lovelives with a little dignity.

Best scene in story: Jason waiting for Ellie at the park.

Opinion about the main character: I guess it's cliche for Jason to be the guy who meets the girl of his dreams but always fears commitment at the last minute.
