too obvious, not funny enough, not sharp at all, so many awful lines, tries too hard for a warmness it doesn't achieve, too heavy a hand, too pleased with itself, too many men; the teen parts esp are so embarrassingly + poorly written, edging into insulting (to women/teen girls, people who like good writing); the journalists + jewelry store parts are ok when Cera isn't being made to make multiple throwaway rape jokes
I didn't think Person to Person amounted to much — at first. I thought I was watching some Alex Ross Perry thing, and honestly I haven't been in the mood for an Alex Ross Perry thing.
Anyway, Person to Person is a delicate little movie full of small and simple treasures. Like Ben Rosenfield, who comes back to life after brutally being murdered by a hazy monster in Twin Peaks.
