Not being a fan of the Duplass boys priors, I was surprised how engaging and affecting I found this film to be. To say it's a more 'mature' film is a bit of a stretch, since it still deals with their 'man-boys', but it plays more like a filmed version of the dirty realism of 80s North American short stories with strong but understated performances. And, damn, even the 'uplifting' ending didn't feel forced but earned.
i enjoyed this film surprisingly more so than I thought I would since the trailer was such crap. I really liked the optimistic attitude of the film and it's stance on fixing marriages rather than giving up on them. A stance I think is incredibly important in modern movies. Acting was good and there were some legitimately funny moments. And the ending was actually moving! Go figure!
Not bad. I rated it a 3 but I suppose you could say I rounded down. It's entertaining and sentimental, sure, but something's lacking here. I didn't care much for the camerawork or the secret admirer storyline, but Susan and Jason gave great performances.
