Storyline

In Los Angeles, Annie and Darren are a married couple in a comfortable relationship that's lost its spark. They talk constantly, express affection verbally, start the day with high-end coffee, end the afternoon with gelato, shop at the farmer's market, prepare dinner as a team, do crossword puzzles, and talk in bed. Darren wonders if a one-night stand would help bring more sex to their marriage. Soon, the two of them are laying out the ground rules and talking through the mechanics of each finding a lover for one night. They agree to give each other no details about the experience. The night comes. Will this give their relationship a needed boost? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Lea: So yeah, let's talk about it. The fact that Will's not here, and I know you guys liked Will. And I love him, still, but it was a long time coming, and it's over, and this time it's for real. Last night I finally did it. I finally was honest, and I'm sad, and it was hard, and it's been a hard time. But now it's done. And now I get to go and be myself.

Katie Aselton I love you but you're bringing me down ...
20 February 2011 | by stevegcSee all my reviews

In my quest to watch all things Katie Aselton, I thought I'd found pure gold when I stumbled upon this movie. I watched the preview to see if my bounty was true or fools gold. The preview played it off like a light hearted romantic comedy so I was sold! Much like the premise of the better known comedy Hall Pass, a young couple comes to an agreement to take one night off from their marriage in hopes of rekindling the spark in their relationship. Much UNLIKE the better known comedy Hall Pass, this is not a comedy at all but rather a horror movie. Their guilt and shame at what they've done destroys the bedrock of their relationship and we're left to pick up the pieces. Dax Shepard and director Katie Aselton are pleasant enough as the young couple but I watched the first half of this movie thinking that this doesn't look like a couple that is having intimacy problems. The second half of the movie I just thought Dax's character was a jackass. Katie, of course, was a princess. I found it to be very similar to Indecent Proposal in that it tells the story of a young couple that tempts fate in an attempt to save their relationship only to find they've set about destroying it instead.
