Good story potential, poor editing and slow pacing.
4 December 2005 | by See all my reviews

I found Anthony Rapp's portrayal of the lead character, David, charming, but the film was very poorly edited so that scene changes often were disconcerting. His roommate's rejection of her "boyfriend" was not credible. Did David learn any lesson from her experience? Did she? The musical interludes made the film drag on and advanced the plot not a bit; it's as if the editor randomly chose to use this device without any thoughtful reason.

The script writing left a lot to be desired, mainly the Big Question that David's documentary posed; ludicrous; boring! However, the general dialog was not bad; I've seen much worse.
