Makes Sense
1 September 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm far from a film critic but I do know what's good and this movie was a very pleasant surprise. It made a lot of sense and the actors were perfect for the characters. I actually saw it tonight on pay per view and with little expectations, I really felt as if I got a surprise.

I would recommend this film to others (especially singles) since it touched on how so many of us waste so much time playing the field only to end up alone. I was disappointed at first with the ending but I guess, that ending is more realistic to real life. I'm honestly going to watch the film again but the next time, not alone. It really should be shared.

One piece of advice to the writer/director, good work should be shared. It's really a delightful movie, it makes a lot of sense from a guy's perspective and you should market the movie better. I actually tripped over it, not knowing it was there..I believe there are a few hundred thousand people that would like it as much as I did, if only they knew it was there..

A great metaphor: put your movie on the main table versus leaving it on the discount table..

Two thumbs up!!

Cheers..
