I feel like John Hamburg has the potential to be a very strong comedy director, but never quite reaches there. I Love You, Man I simply... loved. It was such a great and legitimately heartfelt comedy which had me laughing throughout but also caring about the characters. It was predictable, but the heart is what made it work.
Along Came Polly was decent, but not very memorable. Why Him? was even less impressive and only worth seeing in full once.
It seems like he can't seem to top I Love You, Man even though his style is seems still pretty much present. What could be the reason for this?
