The ENTIRE premise of this movie could've been worked out if Andy simply just asked Lauren on her feelings on this relationship. Sadly about 15 minutes in I realized that would never happen and the entire movie would flounder around to terrible excuses for friends and family just wasting 90 minutes of everyone's time. Like others have stated it has an overabundance of clichés and it makes watching this very frustrating. Even if in making this movie the protagonist decides to go about things on his own there are many better ways to do this, instead it's like I've seen this story many other times over, and sometimes done much better than this.
Other gripes, the ending almost killed it and that's why I'm no longer fluctuate between 3 and 4. I mean I've seen worse but really it wasn't funny. Also the editing of the movie and sound were definitely below par. There were points where I could hear thing that were on screen and they didn't match up and times where the scenes were cut poorly with moments that could've been funny but didn't hit because the transition was off. Also the little "reality TV" interviews, confessionals (à la Mr. and Mrs. Smith), highlighted when things weren't working either. Either you met people you weren't introduced to or the confession wasn't really the point. Honestly, I'm not going to harp on about it too much. It was rough, there were a moments when I thought things were cute, mostly with Krysten Ritter but other than that? Nothing.
Honestly it could've been worse and I know I've definitely seen worse but in the end the only thing that save it was the music. The soundtrack was pretty impressive. Sadly many scenes didn't work with the music or was cut to a zero level so you could hear some of the awful script. I would buy the music, if there's a list somewhere I'm in. Other than that this was an unfortunate movie.
