Storyline

Based on his play by the same name, Neil LaBute's script follows a nameless and successful but misanthropic and narcissistic writer who, on the eve of his wedding, travels across the country to meet up with ex-lovers in an attempt to make amends for past relationship transgressions. Crisscrossing from Seattle to Boston, he reunites with high school sweetheart Sam in Seattle, sexually free-spirited Tyler in Chicago, married English college professor Lindsay in Boston, his best friend's little sister Reggie in Seattle, and "the one that got away" Bobbi in Los Angeles. A modern-day Candide stumbling through a landscape familiar to most men-messy breakups. Written by Leeden Media

User Reviews

 
great actresses but kind of pretentious
3 November 2014 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

Adam Brody plays a successful unnamed writer who is on the verge of getting married. He meets his high school sweetheart Sam (Jennifer Morrison) whom he left before prom instead of staying on the path to marriage. She is now a married mom back in their hometown with a stable husband. Then there is Taylor (Mía Maestro) who is single and just wants to have fun. His married college professor Lindsay (Emily Watson) who feels slighted after their affair and eventually him writing about it. Reggie (Zoe Kazan) is his former best friend's little sister remembering her 12th birthday. Bobbi (Kristen Bell) is the love of his life who has an identical twin Billie.

This starts with an interesting scene between Brody and Morrison. It's funny and awkward. Then I think the movie follows the wrong character. He's uninteresting, pretentious, and really really whiny. At least, she has a family that could give some real human interactions. For most of the movie, he is annoyingly clueless like he's not a real human being. The ending helps explain some of that but it's too little too late. Most people wouldn't stick around till the end. It's frustrating to watch this.

The other problem is that the interactions are too static. It doesn't have any cinematic style and can't justify jumping from a play to a movie. The scenes need movement desperately.
