I think all the performances were very good, although Downey's overshadows his two fellow actors. As I watched, I laughed a lot. When it ended my first impression was that it is a very clever lightweight comedy. Since then, the film has made me think fairly deeply, a rare effect indeed from any film.
To date it poses two questions to me:
1-can a man/woman love two people at once (or is s/he a simple philanderer)?
2-is fidelity possible or desirable in the milieu of this film?
A last question is whether self-destructiveness is inseparable from the talent of actors like Downey and Robin Williams and others?
I have revised my first assessment of the film upward.
