Rubbish
23 July 2011 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

I watched the first 45 minutes of this film and decided to cut my loses. As a film studies graduate, its extremely rare for me to not watch a film in its entirety, I don't like the nagging, lingering question that arises sometimes after only seeing half a film; "I wonder what happened in the end?" With regards to this film, I honestly don't care how it ended. A romantic comedy that is neither funny nor romantic. I couldn't even force half a smile at any of the jokes.

This film breaks the most basic fundamental rule of storytelling; the audience needs to feel empathy, affection and support for the central protagonist. I could not invest in the character Ethan Green at all, I felt no interest in his 2 dimensional life whatsoever.

The plot is farcical, the narrative is all over the place and the acting is wooden and amateur.

Avoid, avoid, avoid.
