Storyline

Two French Canadian ne'er-do-wells travel to New York City with a scheme to get rich quick selling Christmas trees. Easygoing charmer Rene (Paul Rudd) clashes with misanthropic ex-con Dennis (Paul Giamatti), whose wife Rene just stole. Still, this odd couple must make an honest go of it in this buddy comedy.

A Christmas Bummer Film
20 November 2013 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

A few great actors in one deadpan script -- morality play does not a great film make. Not so cheery and eerily reminiscent of Antonioni's Il Grido in many ways. If you're not used to the accents you could use subtitles for some of the dialog.

So, the main character is so sad that you don't laugh, there is that Indie no music and dull- - mundane camera work, but you want to laugh. Giamatti's character is not quite an idiot or a genius, not rehabilitated or remorseful, but he has hope -- kind of. Then there's his ex-wife who's indifferent to him, as he is or was, and over what they were at one-time. Then there is the friend Rene played by Paul Rudd. Rene has a moral high-ground, he's not a thief, but he's an optimistic liar and he has good-looks working for him. Ironically Rene takes his old friend with him to NY out of guilt and need for a friend. So you find out a little bit about the two characters, and they work there magic -- sort of. I lost interest in the film a few days in NY bleak days until Olga comes around. Sally Hawkins character has a hard shell on the outside and a good heart on the inside. She speaks for people and about people. And all good holiday movies have a happy--sad climax and an anti-climax, this film is much sadder than most. (:
