Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Leaves its actors looking somewhat stranded, as if waiting for Neil Simon zingers that were never written.
Fresh: Mamet has a quick, spry reaction time and a gently forlorn focus that holds the screen, and she holds this movie together.
Fresh: [A] droll, knowing and tender romance - a story that brings a delicate touch to one of the thorniest of life's questions: How do you predict regret?
Rotten: What's missing in Brooks's gentle approach is the rom-com fizz and pop, with comic zingers that wound and enlighten.
This was the best that anyone could come up with for a movie idea?
Sweet indie movie filmed in NYC
I always thought Zosia Mamet deserved better than a Lena Dunham project, and this movie proves it. Sweet, funny, and very well filmed- especially if you enjoy NYC as the backdrop of a film. It's a soft, thoughtful movie about people finding their way through the uncertainties of life, I chose to buy it rather than rent it, and now that I watched it I'm glad I did.
Really enjoyed it!
Really enjoyed it. Might not be for everyone, but the acting was great and it will be very familiar for many people. Give this film a chance!
