Luis Fernando Peña,
There are probably few better ways for a movie to ingratiate itself with me than to open with a Kinks song. So "Monica" was a good start. I had been expecting a dark acerbic comedy based on its premise, but was not let down at all by it's decidedly more absurdist bent. The overall premise of a clingy woman looking for marriage and a nerdy man looking for a newer hotter woman are tired and not in themselves funny, but the dialogues with his nitwit friends and small surprising details were. But then that all dried up at some point as it settled into being mildly quirky indie fare and pretended to care about the protagonist's feelings rather than eliciting laughs. It was very inconsistent in tone, style, and comic appeal, and a big let down in the end.
