Thought provoking movie
10 August 2005 | by void_mindSee all my reviews

It's good.. it's definitely worth seeing but not as interesting for me as Québec-Montréal. Probably because the subject matters in the later hit closer to what I am living as a single male in his late twenties. If you go see it, I highly recommend you go with your significant other and with a bunch of other people both men and women because it's bound to bring up some interesting conversations after the movie in the same way Québec-Montréal would.

My only complaint about the movie is it's stereotypical representation of men's unfaithfulness toward their girlfriends. While it's true that men are statistically more likely to cheat on their girlfriend, the movie portrays all the main women characters in it as saints, which gives off the (false) impression that unfaithfulness in women doesn't happen often enough to be worth pointing out. I don't think it was the director's intention to imply that all men are a certain way (implicitly bad) and women another way (good). But since ALL the girlfriends in the movie are morally irreproachable and all the men are so prone to succumb to their baser, morally dubious, instincts I got out of the theater feeling that it's gender characterizations weren't quite fair and even a little sexist. Of course, it also doesn't help that all but one of the male characters are too blatantly moronic for me to identify with. I guess there are a lot of men like that but (sadly) the majority of them are not likely to be the ones to go see the movie.
