If the name of Danny Boyle is often synonym of success, the Englishman is also capable of directing more than mediocre movies such as this A Life Less Ordinary.
It relies on a qualitatively low script. Everything is convenient, cliché, the plot unfolds really too linearly and is in the end little interesting. The fantastic touch, more boring than anything, doesn't help either.
The Diaz-McGregor works difficultly and struggles to extricate itself from this mess where characters and situations are stereotyped.
Even the direction is uninspired, not to mention the soundtrack that is almost ridiculous, which is a shame when speaking of Boyle.
It is maybe the worst feature of the director, along with Millions, both movies sharing as a matter of fact the same mystical tone.
