all the things that can go wrong when two broken-hearted guys going to get together again with their girlfriends
evivavita11 August 2005
I've seen this movie when visiting the United States last year. I was staying at a friend's and she came across this hilarious indie film. It doesn't have the usual "star power" but makes up for this "lack" through a funny and well-crafted screenplay. Also, if you've just broken up your relationship with your boy- or girlfriend, this is probably good medicine. The contrast between the two main characters (Martin and Russell) couldn't possibly be bigger: Martin is the overly-concerned guy who can't deal with his loss to the point where he calls up his ex-girlfriend but being unable to say anything. Russell, on the other hand, is the not too bright go-getter who is not afraid of crashing parties and drawing the wrath of a group of college athletes onto him and even more so onto poor Martin, entirely uninvolved except for hanging out with seemingly the wrong guy. At the same time, they couldn't be more similar in that both follow the wrong approach to re-invigorate their relationship. They say "the way is the goal" and the ending is not the Hollywood-typical happy one, but not entirely sad either. I haven't found or seen it anywhere since, which is a pity. I hope to get hold of it here in Germany at some point again.
