It is said that the plot line has some personal significance to the movies writer/director, Nancy Meyers.

Nancy is a bit of an icon when it comes to directing romcoms with credits like Father Of The Bride, The Parent Trap, What Women Want, Something’s Gotta Give, The Holiday and It’s Complicated under her belt.

She hasn’t written or directed a film since 2015’s The Intern with Robert DeNiro and Anne Hathaway, finally making her comeback with this brand new movie.

While a big budget is always better – it’s how you get iconic actors involved afterall, it’s not always the be all and end all in fact box office figures from 2010 romcom How Do You Know will tell you just that, it doesnt matter.

How Do You Know cost a ridiculous $120 million to produce. The film featured Reese Witherspoon, Jack Nicholson, Owen Wilson and Paul Rudd as well as writer/director James L.Brooke, taking up a full $50 million of the film’s budget.

It unfortunately flopped in cinemas only seeing $49 million in box office, also receiving a pretty awful 39% rating on rotten tomatoes. Sadly it ended James L.Brooke’s career as he hasn’t written or directed another film since How Do You Know, which just goes to show high budget films aren’t always the biggest hits.
