Pretty poor showing
27 July 2013 | by See all my reviews

I didn't particularly enjoy this movie or see any overall point to it. It wasn't much of a comedy, and I lost interest in whatever drama was occurring.

The characters were fairly unsympathetic and/or uninteresting. Penny (Dreama Walker) was particularly unlikeable - bitchy to everyone without cause, yet convinced she's more mature than the average man. When the thoroughly hen-pecked Kenny (Tate Ellington) finally loses his cool with her, the film treats him as the one in the wrong.

I liked the ending (not just because it was over), but because it was the one little touch of humanity in the whole film. It's not really worth watching just to find out what I'm talking about here.
