I can't say if it is a good or bad movie, but what I believe is that it is a real life movie: I must know it, it describes what many of us have lived in real life, actually, it is a mirror image of many lives. I do not mean by that I am some dysfunctional guy, but everybody has a little of that. You should watch it; it is possible that you may find yourself re-living some personal experience. It is not a typical Hollywood movie, it is a rather practical and real life experience that as you watch you begin feeling as if some knew about you and made it a movie. I watched this movie with my wife and she kept on joking about how similar the story was with our first dates.
