accurate, cynical dialog
31 August 2005 | by (Bay Area, CA, USA) – See all my reviews

I lived for awhile in NYC, and I liked this movie.

I spent some part of my life in virtually identical apartments. So maybe I am just being nostalgic. But watching this, I really felt like the people were much like real people I have known.

One thing I am sure of is the dialog is terrific. For instance when one character asked 'what do you do?' and got the reply, 'I am an actor' she immediately followed this up with: 'Oh, what restaurant?'.

At this stage in my life I prefer this to anything Woody Allen has done (or for that matter the two Edward Burns' movies I have seen).

Yes, the characters sit around drinking wine, and making small talk. And, yes, the lead is irresponsible, and feels far too sorry for himself. But the movie is really about the various women's perception of the lead, about their experience of him. Which makes it darkly amusing, and happily so not in the Allenesque, narcissist, self-deprecating style. The lead is a clown, but we aren't pressured to feel sorry for him. At all.
