This movie was universally panned on just about every site on the internet. Sometimes it works, most often it doesn't. Perhaps it's the films pretentiousness. Or the flippant direction by John Krasinski. I agree with the critics on this one. Although it's not a disaster, it is an incoherent mishmash of interviews, interspersed with various dramatic and comic moments that amounts to a lot of nothing. Not once did I care about any of the characters, except perhaps Julianne Nicholson, who really is about the only ray of sunshine in this film. It's pointless and even though it is only 80 minutes long, it gets tiring after only 20 minutes.
