i liked it a lot. man who objectifies women due to porn addiction and woman with unrealistic expectations on men due to hollywood portrayal of how love works. should be a wake up call for many.
A sly comedy about gender objectification that deals with deep issues in a general way. As such, it never quite skewers the targets it reaches for, but that's perhaps the point. Many of the characters are simply presented as being foils for a particular point of view, though the acting is very good throughout. Levitt doesn't cast judgement through the camera eye about who's right or wrong, but instead puts up a mirror to the audience, posing deep questions about what or whom we choose to believe when forming our identity, what we demand of others to seek fulfillment in a furiously changing world, and why, old questions that my generation needs to hear presented in this fashion. The very last line in particular is something to reflect upon - the lesson being that if you're lost amidst a sea of opinions, it's best to be lost with someone you can stand to be around.
In terms of pure narrative, it's quite plain and unremarkable, yet nonetheless, it's a good debut with a confident sense of style. Recommended.
Why are there comments about too much porn content? If you're prudish about sexual content don't watch a film with a protagonist who watches porn. Besides, at no point do you see any penis or vagina. You can see breasts but then you can see breasts on National Geographic or every other Angelina Jolie movie.
