Sweet without being lame. Yes, it's possible. Even with Paul Rudd. The ending made me very happy, even not knowing how it actually ends. I guess it's one of those few exceptions when I'm not mad for not knowing everything... It all makes so much sense.
"And since you want an asshole, my not being an asshole makes me more of an asshole than the assholes you normally date, because they're giving you exactly what you want, whereas I, by not being an asshole, am not. Which makes me an asshole."
Like the equally hackneyed and shallow Me and Earl and the Dying Girl, Burnett has delivered a feel-good TV movie that completely ignores the pitiful neoliberal condition of healthcare and caregiving in the United States.
Bellissimo. Ho riso fino alle lacrime e un po' mi sono anche commossa. Questo film racconta una storia dolce amara e i due protagonisti riescono ad emozionare con battute leggere su un argomento molto profondo. Capita raramente che guardi lo stesso film due volte in una giornata, ma oggi è successo: una in compagnia di me stessa, in lingua originale, ed una assieme a mia madre, in lingua italiana, per discuterne.
great cast, clever and well-written. you can laugh very hard, heartwarming moment and somtime you can made your eye wet. that's it. not the best, not memorable and totally not the best dramedy of the year, but still enjoyed to watch.
Now I'm not sure if the ending was supposed to be as brilliant as I interpreted it, or if it was meant to be open-ended, but it made the film that much better for me. There was that "indie charm" that ran throughout and Selena Gomez gave it a nice kick in the balls when it needed it. There were some touching moments, but I felt that the emotions never ran too deep. Definitely see this one, but don't get hopes up.
