Charlyne Yi embarks on a quest across America to make a documentary about the one subject she doesn't fully understand: Love. Michael Cera becomes the object of her affection. Weaving together reality and fantasy, Paper Heart combines elements of documentary and traditional storytelling to get at modern romance. Written by
Nick Jasenovec (Jake Johnson) is directing a documentary about performer Charlyne Yi's search for the meaning of love. She asks people on the street, regular folks, her famous (and not) friends like Seth Rogen, Demetri Martin and even scientists or other 'experts' of love. Then she runs into Michael Cera at a party. As she travels across the country, she connects with Michael and they start dating.
The documentary parts are random at times. There is some fun, some profound, and some pedestrian. There are some childlike stop-motion animation segments. Charlyne Yi is adorably awkward. She's great alone or with Jake Johnson. Her chemistry with Michael Cera is a bit sparse. Of course, it's a fictional storyline and is itself awkward. This is definitely different. I did find the DVD extras to be hilarious. I'll keep that part out of the rating. Otherwise I would give this an 8.
