Storyline

Gary, an actor who plays a cop on television, uses too much lighter fluid when he burns his ex-girlfriend's things, then he drinks and drives, uses crack, and crashes his car. He sobers up in jail and is placed under house arrest and the watchful eye of a publicist, the cheery and tough-minded Margaret. She moves him into the empty house of a writer who's away in Canada on a shoot. Gary meets Sarah, an attractive and seemingly-willing neighbor. His friendship with Margaret blooms and strange things happen: he finds notes he doesn't remember writing, he hears noises, and he seems to bump into himself in the kitchen. Two remaining chapters reveal what's going on. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Just because you don't understand doesn't mean it isn't artistic
7 October 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Underrated, overlooked, under-appreciated.

Ryan Reynolds has yet to let me down, he's always been excellent, you can tell he has passion in his roles and this is no exception.

Melissa McCarthy did excellent, her portrayal of her character is spot on, makes me wonder why she isn't given more quality roles, she has potential Any film Hope Davis is in has always been good, she knows how to pick her roles.

This film is a bit confusing, complicated, and you might need to search for some information afterward, but it's a solid film.

The only advice I could give without spoiling the film is to pay close attention to the ending of each chapter in the film, in particular, what is decided.

I enjoy films that bend the rules, thought-provoking films that allow for creativity to seep through the screen into your own life. Artistic and creative, the possibilities in life and/or the meanings of life are endless, so it's great some films focus on something other than the normal linear perspective.

If you enjoy any of the actors listed, or sci-fi, or under-appreciated films, check this one out.
