Take the good with the bad...
27 March 2017 | by (San Francisco) – See all my reviews

This isn't a BAD film, but it's not very good. Toni Collette (always watchable) gives it the old college try, but it's hard to muster up much love for her messed-up character. Ryan Eggold shines as one of the objects of her affection, and the delightful Nina Arianda adds another quirky, delicious character to her list of such. Sadly, the script is a hodge-podge of Rom-Com tropes with a tepid mystery at its core, and Thomas Haden Church seems to be in a completely different film - his portrayal is so broad and painful, it feels like he walked out of an old "Pink Panther" movie. He's torture to watch and pretty much sinks every scene he's in. But if you're a Collette, Arianda or Eggold fan...you could do worse, I suppose. Just be prepared for one of the most unsatisfying endings of the century.
