"Stupid" is an understatement... and that goes for the man in question, as well
11 April 2010 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

Meet Owen. He has a problem. You see, he's a Jew in New York. Wait, that's it? Oh, wait, no... he's got one of those girlfriends way too amazing(-looking, at least) for the unlikable jerk lead guy to get. So? Ah, she's cheating on him. Why doesn't he know? Clearly it's accepted as public knowledge in the interview that we see right after(what, that was supposed to be much later? So he *didn't* go whining to his friend immediately?). There are a couple of other glaring flaws; once the script realizes that the relationship between him and Nadine is in progress, it has another character ask why, and the BS explanation that follows is entirely without basis in what we've seen at that time. In the TV show set scene, he wouldn't have a mike, and she probably didn't, so how could the audience hear everything? The sit-com sequence right before that is the one portion where the dialog sounds right and isn't poor, and that is a clue as to what Burns can write lines for, as another reviewer also notes. He should put down the pen, seriously; yes, I get that the three men represent three kinds of love males give. So? Does that preclude them(and everyone else in this) from having personality? I'm not kidding, they are all empty, flat and obnoxious, with any exception being at most momentary. Any trait they are granted is irritating or meant to get laughs. Ah, it almost has a point here and there. After the half-way mark this finally decided to hold genuine substance, but by then it had wasted any potential at being meaningful and holding truth about relationships. Why? Because this is so busy being powerfully unfunny with a ton of forced humiliation jokes and gags. It's just disgusting. Krumholtz(who takes on the role of an emotionally retarded dude... no one is *that* blind; what happened to you? You were *spot-on* as Joel Glicker in Addams Family Values!) is no Woody Allen; neither is Brian(leave the craft to your brother, man, She's the One is far superior to this crap), though that doesn't prevent him from ripping of shtick some(that bit was hilarious in Annie Hall, don't try to top it, you merely make a fool of yourself). And let's steal(and worsen) the entire concept from When Harry Met Sally, while we're at it. He's not even a capable a director; as a romantic comedy(and trust me, I've seen my share, and liked several), this comes off as phoned in. The montage feels fake, and the title-drop(s) is incredibly awkward. Oh, and let's mercilessly mock people who believe in astrology. I don't believe in it; it's the quantity and tone of the material surrounding it in this that I protest. Nevertheless... I got this for one reason. While I maybe did not remember that this had a deservedly low rating here when I bought it on sale, I might have purchased it anyway. Why? Milla. I have a crush on her that does not seem to end. Her beauty, charm, cuteness and sweetness defy description. I spent money on this because it starred her, and I don't regret that, she gets to show some of her best features; if you can tolerate it, this is worth watching for us fans of her. The acting is pretty good, especially hers. I say the following without any bias of a single cast member(well, I only knew the main four): Her performance, and the part of Nadine were the only thing in this that made me care(near the conclusion, when she got to add a third dimension to it). There is plenty of strong language and brief sexuality in this. The DVD comes with 4 trailers. I recommend this solely to others who love seeing Jovovich in movies, and to fans of the genre who don't care what level of quality they're getting. You know, independent film-making is such a perfect way to express that which you won't be allowed to in mainstream pictures... why bother putting together something run-of-the-mill? 5/10
