Storyline

Reeling from a brutal break-up, Kira sleeps with Max, a charming but disheveled wreck already committed to long-term girlfriend Sara. Max (no emotional sophisticate) becomes obsessed, mostly with Kira, but vaguely with his curious lack of conscience as well. Kira, fighting to win a job she hates and running aimless romantic loops, faces the precarious double challenge of choosing a next step and charting a course back to sanity. Good luck leading with your heart, when your heart is an utter emotional idiot. Written by sorrythanksfilm.com

30 May 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I don't usually waste my time commenting on below-average (i.e., rated under five on a scale of ten) films, but I do so here – "Sorry, Thanks" is rated as I write at 4.2, with 93 votes on this forum – only to contrast it to a twice-better film that I watched yesterday, also on the Sundance Channel.

"Man in the Chair" (2007) is a professional film about the making of a film for a student movie competition. It's professional in the sense that it employed more than half a dozen well-known, established actors, used interesting and semi-innovative film techniques, relied on a large network of outside sources in its production, and so on.

"Sorry, Thanks," on the other hand, simply looks like an actual student production, with its sub-par acting, ordinary but competent photography, minimal plot line, and the apparent sketchiest of scripts.

This movie is classified as a "comedy," with a tag line of "An unromantic comedy." It seems to me that there ought to be a sub-classification for "unfunny comedies," since there are so many of them on the market. Whether this movie is a comedy or a drama (or a dramedy, in popular parlance), to this viewer is debatable.

The following line from the movie seems to sum up this entire amateurish effort: "You make a great grade school student."
