Although Quinn may strike some viewers as more annoying narcissist than self-deprecating charmer, he's a vivid creation.
It works, mostly, thanks to Helberg's committed, vanity-free performance, and to the bubbly chemistry between him and the luminous Melanie Lynskey as Devon, his first and only love.
Lynskey's performance is sympathetic, but the movie doesn't fully convince us in its dramatization of her responses to Quinn's large and small blunders.
A sporadically amusing, more often grating romantic comedy.
The New York Times
This derivative comedy, in addition to not being particularly funny, gives off a sense of telling us more than we needed to know.
This film requires so many leaps of faith and suspensions of disbelief that you might develop acrophobia.
Throughout, Helberg's awkward-anxious routine proves insufferable, and it's made no more tolerable by supporting turns from Zachary Quinto, Alfred Molina, and Judith Light, who are given so little to do that their presence in this mess feels downright cruel to both them and us.
The danger in writing, directing, producing and casting yourself in the same movie is that there's no one to pull you back from the cliff. Simon Helberg (“The Big Bang Theory”) did co-direct this grating vanity affair with his wife, Jocelyn Towne, but neither seems to realize how misguided it is at every step.
