What do you mean?
I mean, human beings evolved out of millions of years out of the swamp, and stood up, made fire, built shelter, invented the wheel... For what, so you could stand in a funny hat and sell grape juice gorillas?
I'm kinda trying not to think about it like that.

It fulfills everything that a romantic comedy wants to be. I.e., a sweet, cute, warm, encouraging, adorable, amusing, snuggle-worthy, young adult date (or post-breakup, or looking for someone) film. The plot setup is clear and you can see at least romantically where this is going within the first 5-10 minutes. Not a film to go to if you're looking for mystery or suspense or women screaming in fear with hands to their head.
It is, however, a new take on a common story line, and the writer/director does an excellent job of creating parallels. There are only so many new takes you can get on young adult romances involving those misdirected or lost and confused, so it's worth seeing for that and a variety of subtle insights.
As is befitting a giant mechanical age of program loops, it is easy to see how a giant mechanical man could have ended up writing this story as part of a biography.
But I'm still disappointed Jenna's character didn't do something about the artificial zoo juice.
