A brilliant, hilarious film.
30 November 2004 | by See all my reviews

A smart, funny anti-romantic comedy. Woody Allen meets Albert Brooks, but younger. A faux-doc about a couple that decides to find new partners before they break up, in an effort to avoid the usual pain and angst. Of course, things don't work out as planned. The woman finds a new man almost immediately, while her better half fumes and freaks. Benjamin Ratner is excellent as Rob, the anti-hero, and makes it fun to watch him spiral into a jealous frenzy. The female lead was also very good. This felt like an updated take on the "open-relationship" experiments of the 1970s. Very clever and very amusing. I recommend it to anyone who has gone through a messy break up. And who hasn't?
