Could have been great....if Miranda July made it. Very pretentious.
I ♥ Rogen, ♥ Williams, but not feeling this pretentious movie.
Unfortunately Williams and Rogen can't even save this film. They make
an adorable on screen couple though. You can feel the voice of Polley
in the story, who I like as an actor but clearly not as a producer. The
pacing is off entirely. There is a lot of pompous dialogue for the sake
of, what I guess, adding poetry and depth, although there it none to
begin with.On the other hand it's full of clichés.
You feel that this film is aiming for the film festival audience by
pulling off a few run of the mill art-house tricks, making the movie
feel disingenuous and artificial. Halfway you don't know if you have to
be offended or just disappointed for being underestimated like this.
If I could rate this on two different scales, I'd rate the cast 8 and
the script and production 3.
