Sean Michael Allen,
See You in September is an original romantic comedy set in current day Manhattan. The film centers around Lindsay, a beautiful woman who seemingly has it all, but is deeply afraid of commitment. When she finds out that her therapist takes a vacation for the entire month of August she feels shocked and abandoned. Instead of taking this news lying down, Lindsay enlists the help of her acerbic best friend Monica to come up with a solution. With the assistance of "Craig's List", Lindsay puts together a group therapy session for all Manhattanites who are in need of therapy, but more importantly angry at their therapists for abandoning them.

Sometimes I don't get why some people are so harsh on some movies... OK, "See you in September" is not a masterpiece, and it would never run for the Academy Awards...but, if some people forget about all the technicalities of movie-making, about flawless plots, and all that, they'd find much more positive aspects in movies like this one!
See You In September does have a few plot holes, and it does not have amazing cast performances...though the plot and actors do work well enough to bring the audience a pleasant experience.
Talking about myself, when I watch a movie, most of the time I try to look beyond the movie itself. Some movies are just so bad, that there's nothing to look for. But, See You in September's got it.
It's not a story with a deep drama sub-plot, it's not trying to teach us any supreme lessons, not show us any truths about the human condition. It's simply a comedy that gives us a bit of what it is like to be a person...that some of us have problems, and that helping one another can be quite effective. It shows us friendship, it shows us the hard times we sometimes have, and it shows us a bit of how simple the solution to our problems can be, here and then.
I loved this movie. Had quite a pleasing experience in watching it. It's a descent comedy, a nice way to spend an hour and some more minutes, it can be called a feel-good movie that really makes us feel good, etc.
All you need to do is watch it without high expectations...just enjoy it, think beyond the story being shown...try to relates the situations displayed (problems some of the characters were facing, the formation of otherwise improbable friendships, and all that), and you'll see that this movie is one that can make you think, feel, and have some fun in the process...
