Abigail (Christina Ricci) is meeting her friend Kate at a bar. It's actually a setup for a blind date with Benjamin Conway (Hamish Linklater). He suggests making a list of ten things to do before they break up. It leads to an one-night stand and a pregnancy for the mother of two.
This is an indie. It's a relatively short indie. I don't sense the chemistry between Ricci and Linklater. They have some cute scenes but non of them achieve relationship takeoff. These are two good actors who are keeping their energy at a medium and that makes their relationship a bit at a medium. When a downturn happens, it doesn't have quite the shock value. The one truly off-putting scene is the best friend. I don't get her attitude. The scene crashes headlong into politics and I don't get it. I don't know anyone like this person. The movie is not fun enough. When it's edgy, it gets awkward. I love these two actors and it's not their problem. The title is fun but the ten things don't matter. This indie has a few interesting ideas and two good leads. It also has a few bad ideas and the leads aren't maximized. Even the closing text frustrated me. Maybe it would be better to have an actual scene to depict their relationship.
