Fun Movie On Relationships
I was surprised to see that this movie was being screened at only one
theater in my region. When I arrived, it was not named on the
electronic display board. I asked if I had made a mistake and was
cheerfully told that it was being shown in theater no.12! I bought a
ticket and sat alone, unsurprisingly, I guess.
I thought the movie was pretty good. It explores the complexity of
feeling in relationships that have become stale and habituated - a
common occurrence these days. It reminded me of a goofy version of
Woody Allen's Hannah And Her Sisters. I thought the scene of Duchovny
attending the sex addicts' therapy group for the first time was truly
hilarious. Not often that I laugh out loud at the cinema. (Odd that the
fox Mulder character enjoyed watching porn.) Sadly, I was disappointed
by the ending, which just stretched the imagination too far, for me.
In these days of blockbuster-obsessed America though, it's great to see
a small budget movie like this, even if I had to hunt it down..
This film is about the relationship turmoil about two couples, with
them all trying their best to save their relationships.
I saw this film mainly because of the stellar cast that the film has
assembled. The initial scene of couple therapy reminds me of a similar
scene in "Mr And Mrs Smith", and is certainly funny. However, there is
not much humour in the film after that. The plot then spirals to become
outrageous and unbelievable. This film is marketed as a comedy, and yet
I do not think it is funny. It is more drama than comedy.
The film is often slow and fails to grasp the attention of the viewers.
I get the impression that events in the film happen just for the sake
of happening. I can see no reason why the events happen that way. Maybe
it really was because my attention deficit, that I do not even recall
seeing David Duchovny's character having any evidence of having an
affair at all apart from his self confession.
I think this film could have been good with a better plot, but the plot
is quite a mess and does not make viewers interested in what happens
next. The ending is artificial and seem forcefully put together. I
would not recommend this movie!.
