Missed the mark completely.
2 September 2014 | by MrMcMurphySee all my reviews

I LOVE indie romance dramas with just the right amount of somber and melancholy ("Garden State" was a dream come true for me), but this missed the mark on so many levels. Hence the current "5" rating on IMDb.

Strong points: ADAM SCOTT!!! I love this guy in everything he does (esp. The Vicious Kind, "Parks," Walter Mitty, and Friends with Kids). He knocks it out of the park with this role as well. And Jeremy Strong (perfect in "Humboldt County") did as good as he could with the excessively maudlin role he was given here.

Weak points: The story and the rest of the casting, esp. Robbin Tunney as the female lead. Tunney is the ONLY other female lead in a romantic role that I have ever disliked (the other was Taylor Schilling, who was fine in Orange is the New Black, but seemed way too cold and authoritative in "The Lucky One"). Tunney just doesn't have that inviting or relatable attribute that female leads need in rom-coms/drams. She seems more suited to playing a cynical "mean friend" or "bad guy" - far from the vulnerable "girl" you'd expect to be "running."

As far as the story, it is just lacking. As we find out in the very beginning, girl runs home because she's not happy with her marriage, where her old flame lives; then she stays there. None of the events that unfold while she's home are very interesting or entertaining.

It seemed to be a perfect contender for another great indie rom-dram, but missed the mark completely.

5/10
