A Woody Allen style spin on Oscar Wilde
24 July 2005 | by (Los Angeles, California) – See all my reviews

Brad Rowe! Susan Ward! Samaire Armstrong! A great indie cast puts in truly funny performances in this sparkling and fresh romantic comedy. The film manages to be both cynical and hopeful in its outlook on love, and straddles a fine line of highbrow and lowbrow humor pretty successfully. Susan Ward, the bad girl with a heart of stone from "The In Crowd" makes a 180 degree turn here from her previous tough chick roles, and she is just great as a slightly neurotic, insecure but lovable beauty. I never would have expected this type of character from her, but she's fantastic. Brad Rowe is a charming dweeb, and his character's insecurity works. Samaire Armstrong finally gets a leading role, and it's her best performance ever! She's probably got the most complex role in the film (I won't spoil the surprise), and plays the varying levels of her character to perfection. Jonathan Penner (loved him in "The Last Supper" with Cameron Diaz) comes on with a vengeance as a classic dirt bag. There is a definite Woody Allen style to this film, with much swift funny dialog and smart, unobtrusive direction that never gets in the way of the film's main asset, the performances.
