Director: Marc Webb
Starring: Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Zooey Deschanel
the tale of a guys relationship and subsequent dumping.
better than i expected. i had hesitated watching this for a long time because i figured the part of moster that likes watching romance might want to watch it. but the other day he scoffed at it when he saw it on the demand list, so whatevs, i watched that biotch. i enjoyed that biotch. it was different from the way it was portrayed and i think that's kind of a shame. maybe that's just the way i perceived it's advertising. it's all about perception isn't it....
anyway. this was a believable tale of love and loss, but not loss, loss. just loss. movin' on. yep. i felt really bad for young JGL, and yet i didn't quite hate zooey deschanel. hey, that rhymes. sorry. i'm really distracted on this review. i like that it was narrated. this plus other factors gave it that storybook quality even though it was so realish. juxtaposition. (my must art word)
this was one of those movies where i wish there were fractions in the netflix rating. i would have given this a 3 3/4
p.s. the end was pretty hokey, but subtle hokey. i'll let it slide.
