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
Love is end all be all of storytelling. Usually. But when the entire movie is based on love, there's really nowhere you can go with it. Charlyne Yi is a cool girl I take it, but this movie makes her look like a moron. There's nothing wrong with not believing in love or thinking that you be in love, but I don't want to watch as you struggle with figuring out if you want to change your ways or not.
I'm making the movie out to be worse than it is. Yi interviews several couples and uses puppets to act out what they say. That part is hilariously good. There are also several cameos which I wasn't expecting but was pleasantly surprised by. The ending was good enough for me to give this movie a five, even though I did have trouble staying focused at times. (PS: Michael Cera is sooooo Michael Cera-y.)
