I went to see this movie with no pre-conceptions, not having heard of it before I purchased my ticket. I went merely in the hope that it might be a bit better than the tripe that passed for blockbusters this summer.
It didn't look too hopeful, yet another slice of Indie-movie life, but the quality of the writing began to overwhelm my negative feelings. A very nice ensemble piece and for once a good plot, with characters engaging enough not to have you trying to second-guess what was going to happen next.
The direction was a little dull, but this is a film about words and if you are wiling to accept that then this is an excellent way to spend a couple of hours in some decent company. There are plenty of laughs in there as well.
