Lola: If it's any consolation, his dick was so big it hurt my back!
Henry: Oh, he has a bigger dick than me too? No, that is a consolation. You should go into the greeting card business. 'Sorry I cheated on you. P.S. your dick is smaller!'

I don't understand why this film was made.
5 December 2012 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

I can't complain about the camera work or the acting. While I didn't particularly enjoy them, nothing really struck me as bad in those departments.

The characters premise seemed to be one of emotional immaturity (whether prevalent or circumstantial), and with that in mind at least all behaved in understandable manners.

The problem is: I don't quite get why this was made into a movie. It was a pain to watch all the self-destructive behavior (most of it on the main characters side). It's a film about the usual average drama that happens in real life and no mitigating qualities to it. I tried to come up with reasons why anyone would want to see this movie, I could not come up with a reason.
