I think the real charm of the movie is on how awkward it is. Very few feel people could relate with characters such as these, the film makes no apology for this. I also thought the way the film was shot complements the really absurd conversations going on through out the film. Everything is so uptight. It reminds me of the uber-nerdy-geeky crowd in high school, everyone want's their opinion head, except instead of pop-culture references, they use psychobabble. It's interesting to see how rounded characters under a very distinct style gives the audience such a impact.
