What's the Point? is a comedy investigating the concept that marriage should be a seven-year contract with an option to renew. The story is told through the lens of a pretentious documentarian and follows three couples at various stages in their relationships.
Sweet flick that's not too coherent, which also seems sweet
disclaimer: some people identify as Cumberbitch; I definitely identify as Bell Boy
I can imagine why most of the reviews were pretty brutal: for an American comedy it's pretty subtle, perhaps because of how much Lake Bell has studied and worked in the UK. For a drama it's often times pretty corny, especially in the final 15-20 minutes where there's a whole lot of resolution with not a whole lot of story to accompany/account for it...
Still, I think it's beautifully made with nice performances of a bunch of really nice people, and perhaps because of the (quite human?) amount of corn, the resolution did feel nicely cathartic to me. Lovely cathartic even.
7.8 out of 10, to be more precise. Thanks Lake!
