Along Came Polly is a 2004 romantic comedy directed by John Hamburg. As a professional risk analyzer for an insurance company, Reuben Feffer (Ben Stiller) does not tolerate any dangers in his own life. When he marries Lisa Kramer (Debra Messing), he thinks that his marriage is going to be totally stable and secure. However, his world is turned upside down when he catches Lisa cheating with a scuba instructor during their honeymoon. When he returns home without Lisa, he decides to go to an art gallery to take his mind off of his failed marriage. While he is there, he meets Polly Prince (Jennifer Aniston), a carefree woman who is anything but safe. When he starts dating Polly, she introduces him to new, hazardous things that previously avoided, like salsa dancing. But when his ex-wife walks back into his life, will Reuben decide to return to the familiar Lisa, or will he decide that being with Polly is worth the risk?moreless
