Clint/Carolyn/Parthena: 4/5 stars.
Native ratings: Netflix: 3.2/5 stars, IDMB: 6.7/10.
This would have been a 5-star movie if it had kept up with the comedy as strongly in the 2nd hour as it did in the first. But like a lot of romantic comedy movies, the comedy stops dead about halfway through, never to be revived.
It was still a great premise, though… Providing somewhat unique situations. The writer is the same writer as Nick And Norah’s Infinite Playlist (2008), and while I actually rated this one ever-so-slightly higher… I think I enjoyed Nick & Norah more.
If the 2nd half had stayed as funny and ridiculous as the 1st, this would have blown Nick & Norah away. But it didn’t. Still good though.
This actually reminded me of The Sure Thing with John Cusack.
And oh… VERY DARK. SO DARK FOR A COMEDY. JESUS.
