I'll admit that it's somewhat unfair to compare a movie to a TV show, since there is simply no way to fit the same amount of material into so much less time. However, if you strip away all content, you're left with something pointless, which is what I feel has happened in this adaptation.
This movie lacks completely the depth and interest of the Japanese TV show Kimi Wa Petto, instead making this a shallow and frankly dull romantic comedy - without much romance or comedy. The characters lack definition and drive, and the story is simply *pretty boy + pretty girl inevitably leads to pretty love*, without anything to make it interesting.
The original source, and the excellent Japanese TV adaptation, is a very different type of story. They speak of loneliness, outsidership, compromise and partnership, and do it well.
You Pet appears to have nothing to say, and writing this I realize it has left me in much the same predicament. The movie is boring, the characters empty, and there is no story to speak of. Do yourselves a favor and watch Kimi Wa Petto instead!
