“It takes three to four weeks to make a bedspread, from getting the yarn, to weaving, finishing and washing,” said Bianca Cloutier, 29, vice president of sales and marketing for Maine Heritage Weavers. “We get emails to this day from couples who’ve had their Bates bedspread since the ’50s, when they got married. A woman told me, ‘My bedspread lasted longer than my marriage.'”

Gosling and Crowe do have chemistry, and an obvious sense of humor which gets them far. They’d have gotten farther, though, if the movie, while at times hilarious, didn’t have such an uneven feel, particularly a nasty edge that simply clashes with the desired jocular tone. Yes, there’s such a thing as dark comedy, but this is a comedy that occasionally just makes you feel queasy. There were moments I knew I was supposed to be laughing but found myself scribbling in my notes: “hmm, funny but not?”
