Storyline

With John's social life at a standstill and his ex-wife about to get remarried, a down on his luck divorcé finally meets the woman of his dreams, only to discover she has another man in her life - her son. Still single seven years after the breakup of his marriage, John has all but given up on romance. But at the urging of his ex-wife and best friend Jamie, John grudgingly agrees to join her and her fiancé Tim at a party. To his and everyone else's surprise, he actually manages to meet someone: the gorgeous and spirited Molly. Their chemistry is immediate. The relationship takes off quickly but Molly is oddly reluctant to take the relationship beyond John's house. Perplexed, he follows her home and discovers the other man in Molly's life: her son, Cyrus. A 21-year-old new age musician, Cyrus is his mom's best friend and shares an unconventional relationship with her. Cyrus will go to any lengths to protect Molly and is definitely not ready to share her with anyone, especially John. ... Written by Fox Searchlight

Dull and Pretentious
12 December 2010 | by Audrey MarsdenSee all my reviews

This movie was so grating on my soul, I can't possibly list all of its faults coherently. However, I will list its most grave offences:

  • the camera work is incredibly distracting and headache inducing


  • the leads have absolutely no chemistry, and fall for each other for no real discernible reason


  • improvisation can be an effective tool of comedy,but there must have been no real writing to this film, as the actors spent most of their time on screen mumbling, stumbling over words, and abusing the word "uhm"


  • this film as labeled as a comedy, yet produces virtually no laughs


  • it is incredibly self conscious of its indie label, and is insufferable in its level of pretentiousness


  • the story is the total opposite of compelling, and there is very little motivation to actually finish the movie and find out what happens to the lackluster characters


In short, ninety minutes of adult characters expressing their feelings in an inarticulate and stuttering manner like that of kindergartners. Avoid at all costs.
