Paul Miller, a self-described "failed actor," sets out for his final act and his ultimate role: the last two days of his life ending with his suicide on tape. He tries to reunite with old friends and family members to say one last final goodbye, all of whom attempt to coax him out of killing himself or dismiss his intentions as a joke. Written by
To start, the only complaint I have with this film was its length. Too short. Plain & simple, I wanted more. The acting was superb, the character development was anything but weak, despite what some skeptics may say, and the writing was dead on. I was most impressed with Paul Rudd's performance, but that's no surprise. He is an incredible actor with more talent in his pinky than most A-list hacks put together. He deserves so much credit & critical acclaim, but is generally relegated to character roles and cameos. Then again, who says character acting is such a bad thing. That is where many of the greatest performances come out.
Also, I could have done without the sidestory of Jennifer & the sound guy. Interesting, but not necessary.
And nomatter how some may speculate, I am a sap for happy endings and I don't believe he kills himself in the ocean. Just like I don't believe that Christian Bale drowns himself in the pool in Laurel Canyon.
