I was at first surprised on the simplicity of the movie. It didn't seem well thought-out, for one thing. When Kremnoltz's character comes up to his girl's trailer and sees it rocking back and forth, he chooses to disregard it and walks right in, which seemed very odd, period (this happens at the very start of the movie, no spoiler). It was the continuity of the scene that seemed not right, that he showed no emotion about what may be going on inside. The conversation about stars the couple keeps having was seems to live in a world of its own, like a story inside a story. These things are what I'd expect in a sitcom or soap opera. The dialogues here go by very fast, often without leaving the audience to sink in the words. There are a few points to the movie, but they were hard for me to remember for most things said didn't seem to add up to anything. I rented the movie for I'm a huge fan of Milla and expected to be impressed by her performance, nonetheless. That I was. Somehow, she managed to pull off the ridiculous jokes and coy punch lines. I hope that someone else makes a simple comedy with Milla in it, but takes some time to write it and even keeps less dialogue but more camera work to express a point, because Milla has the skills to pull off a very quality movie, which this sadly wasn't.
