Would have been a pass, but the music wrecked it
7 September 2012 | by BabelDylanSee all my reviews

This is pretty run of the mill stuff - a drama with some comic elements. I wasn't expecting a great deal from it, but I still left the screening disappointed. The script was pretty basic, which isn't really a limitation in and of itself. But then then everything in the plot ended up being predictable. There were a few good moments from the lead guy that saved some scenes, but in the end it was all so slow. The most frustrating thing with this film was that it was content to deliver what we've seen before, over and over... So why bother with it? Sure, as a small drama it could work as a well told tale, if it knows what it is. But the film can't decide if it's trying to be funny or not. Maybe I would have given it 5/10 except for the music. Annoying! What is trying to add spice and emotion ends up lacking soul, is clichéd and simply overdone in places. The film would have been much better with so much less of it. It gave the final film an amateurish quality that made me disconnect whenever it played. Stronger music could have helped the film where it needed it most.
