Disappointed This movie's plot stank and I felt like if I had paid to watch it I would want my money back.
Stardust Writing
Definitely not the best movie I've ever watched, but it's enjoyable and the characters are likeable.

This movie has so much going for it. It's not your typical "rom com" or standard "boy meets girl" movie. Certainly, it is a "boy meets girl" movie, but there is very little in the movie that is formulaic. The acting is exceptional, especially from Martin Starr (who always puts in stellar performances in his movies), the characters are believable, and the dialogue is realistic and edgy. You actually get the feeling that these are real people, and that these situations could really happen. The characters hold your interest from start to finish (whether you like them or not).
And what I absolutely LOVED about this movie is that it is one of the very few I have seen in over five decades of watching movies that did NOT have a formulaic ending. The ending was definitely different - and realistic, not "traditional Hollywood."
Certainly, it's not the greatest movie every made, but it is definitely well done on all counts, and everyone involved in it should be commended for their excellent efforts.
If you're looking for some enjoyable entertainment some evening, this is definitely worth a look.

a very much accurate depiction of the current dating/hooking up/relationship scene. First off...i'll admit i'm a bit biased: Martin Starr is amazing and I can't not love that guy, Blayne Weaver is a super cool dude and has done some other cool films and shorts(check 'em out) and the number one reason is Natalie Morales...I kinda love her. Ever since The Middleman i've been on her bandwagon and see no need to get off of it.

The premise for this movie seems simple enough. Never get fully invested in a relationship and you won't be reduced to a weak, defenseless...sad excuse of a man...right? Well I think we all know it's never that simple. Tyler and Allen's friendship in this movie is really what matters most. As we all learn...your friends really are your well-being and the role reversal in this film is quite charming. There are some real defining truths in this film that you probably wouldn't expect to find. Quite revealing, that's for sure.

So all in all...I would say check this out with a bunch of your buddies and try to not have any expectations...even if it is labeled as a sorta rom-com(which I guess it kinda is). I am so glad I got this movie. Really, really loved it.

I do not like romantic comedies. I will scoff and deride my way through them if forced to watch. I was prepared not to like 6 Month Rule. I failed. But only because writer / director / actor Blayne Weaver succeeded. I loved the guts it took to showcase two truly and thoroughly flawed characters. People who are charming and endearing but still made of troublesome human-ness.The story is solid, reminding us what actually happens when love is not enough to get past the rules and nonsense we have sculpted for ourselves as leaning posts. The comedy is subtle and not forced. The dialogue is honed-edge sharp and clever without being kitschy. Mr. Weaver and his co-star Natalie Morales build something really very lovely onscreen together. The ending was what stole my heart a little. Honest and hard and exactly how and what it needed to be. A really wonderful film.

As I write this, the reviews are exactly split down the middle. Seven each for 1 and 5 stars, one each for 2 and 4 stars, and a couple for 3 stars. I think it's safe to say this is a "love it or hate it" movie. :)

That said, I was surprised that most of the 1 star reviews criticized the movie for poor acting. I find that surprising and depressing as, whatever else one might criticize the movie for (semi-formulaic, occasionally-stilted writing, manipulative scoring), I don't see how one could find fault with the quality of the acting.

Sure, maybe minor players like Dave Foley (Kids in the Hall) and Jaime Pressley (My Name Is Earl) haven't strayed far from their usual characters, but they still entertain and convey those roles effectively. Principals in the film -- Natalie Morales, Blayne Weaver, Martin Starr, Patrick J. Adams -- all do a great job. Adams even does a credible job musically!

The basic plot isn't very different from the standard Hollywood formula: womanizer, check. Recently-dumped friend, check. Already-attached woman to fall head over heels in love with, check. But these elements play out in a somewhat more realistic way than is usual. It's as if the writer paid more attention to the characters that had developed, following them to their natural conclusions rather than pushing the story toward what they think the audience would like.

Is this the best movie I've ever seen? No, not at all. But it's definitely one of the better, more credible "romantic comedies" I've seen (which more emphasis on "romantic" than "comedy").

(I did also enjoy the casting coincidences: Morales and Adams having both appeared in original USA series, White Collar and Suits, respectively, while Morales and Starr having both appeared in the TV series, Parks and Recreation).

I loved every second of Blayne Weaver's 6 Month Rule! This is a film that needs to be in theaters. Unlike other Rom-com's, this film is focused on the male protagonist's point of view. Although, the protagonist does not want to commit to any woman, he eventually finds one who believes he can be with for more than 6 months. I would recommend this movie to any one who wants to see how a heterosexual man views love & relationships. I would also recommend it to anyone looking to see a really good film.
