I actively disbelieve in these two characters, and the world they live in
24 November 2011 | by whitehorizon08See all my reviews

Let me preface my remarks by saying I have never seen another of July's films. First: The characters are fake and incredibly annoying- constantly spouting 'quirky' non-sequiturs, or prating on self referentially about the agony of their inconsequential, unrealistic and banal fears. The characters are not believable. The film watcher does not say 'oh I identify with this character'. Its actually the opposite, which makes it much harder to enjoy. The best July can hope for is that younger viewers will be stumped by the 'enigma' each character represents, and then peer pressure will cause them to embrace a movie that isn't there to begin with so they can impress their friends. In the worst case, as in mine, moviegoers will not be able to suspend disbelief in the pretense of the two main characters and the flow of the film at it's core, and will just exhale one super long Napoleon Dynamite sigh until the end of the movie. Second: My favorite part of the movie was every time that I said out loud to either the male or female character (in my most authoritative voice): "What the h*** are you talking about right now?!" That was when the movie felt fresh and relevant.
