3.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining January 31, 2012
An interesting character study set in Los Angeles. Its hard to get past the idea of Dane Cook as a psychoanalyst/psychologist and leading man. However, props to him for going outside of his comfort zone and trying to tackle his role as Ryan. Definitely worth a look to see his attempt at this serious role. The most moving story and interactions in this film involved Drew (Miranda Bailey), Erik (Vincent Ventresca), and Kate (Elizabeth Mitchell). The whole marathon scene was amazing! Maybe a little bit expected for the critically jaded movie audiences, but a moving portrayal of struggle and victory none-the-less. An undeniable triumph. Barbra Hershey fans will enjoy her appearance as she plays a small role as Ryan's (Dane Cook) mom. This film has its moments of entertainment but also lives up to its title. A nihilistic drama that tries to deliver a happy ending; a conflicted movie. Its an existential kidnapping mystery movie with careless affairs thrown in for good measure, and an odd mix of self-loathing that will surprise you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great indie movie January 4, 2012
By michael
I saw this movie in the the theater because two of my favorite T.V. actors were in it, Elizabeth Mitchell from Lost and Zach Gilford from Friday Night Lights. I was expecting it to be ok but was blown away by how good it was. What was really surprising was what an amazing job Dane Cook did in a dramatic. I am no fan of his comedy but he did a fantastic job. Answers to Nothing tells several different stories set in L.A. that intertwine and come together in the end. The movie itself is a little long but overall really well acted and will definitely leave you with a plethora of different emotions. I highly recommend it.

1.0 out of 5 stars ANSWERS TO NOTHING! YEP! YOU GOT THAT RIGHT! February 25, 2013
I'm in amazement at the glowing reviews for this poorly made film. Lets start with the beginning set up shot where we are treated to Dane Cook with a woman's head bobbing up and down (well you know where this is going right?). I often wonder what a director is thinking when I view a scene that only seems appropriate if it were in a porno or low brow comedy film.

The set up, after Mr. Cook "gives a lovely lady his present". he tells her not to swallow it, we see her reacting like a chipmunk with her cheeks full of nuts(no pun intended)as she motions to go the the bathroom and spit it out, he tells her "no don't"!, spit it into this cup(which we are fortunate enough to see demonstrated on screen!)so he can take the specimen to the doctor's office to have his "boys" checked for potency! GOOD GRIEF!!! Did I mention that his wife is in the same doctor's office checking her pregnancy??!!!I realize this is supposed to be some sort of character development, but it made it hard for me to take this film seriously.

This opening made me question the merit of the rest of film quickly. I would like to point out that I am a guy and I am not easily disgusted, I can handle pretty much anything, but this scene was so obscene and unnecessary that I didn't know if I wanted to puke or laugh hysterically because of it's ridiculousness!

The film gets worse as we watch Cook (who is a funny comedian at times, but is totally inept as a dramatic actor) flounder with the rest of the lackluster cast sleepwalking through this poorly written and executed film. The stories are not engaging, full of the most obvious clichés which come at you miles ahead of the story unfolding.

It's a boring mess to say the least. It reminded me of a similar style film called Crash, but it isn't anywhere near as interesting or well done. By the end of the film, we are left scratching our heads as we find out ANSWERS TO NOTHING! An aptly titled film indeed!

4.0 out of 5 stars SHE BELIEVES WHAT SHE WANTS TO BELIEVE March 12, 2012
This is what we call a major league indy plot with loosely connected characters...intertwine is the phrase they like to use to make it sound artsy. There is a missing young girl. Beckworth (Greg Germann) the neighbor is a person of interest. Frankie (Julie Benz) is the investigating officer. Her friend Kate (Elizabeth Mitchell) is the sweetest thing this side of candy, and she is married to a psychologist Ryan (Dane Cook) who lies and cheats. One of his patients is TV writer Allegra (Kali Hawk) who is African-American and hates blacks. There is also a woman who cares for her brother. He is in a vegetative state. She wants to push his wheelchair in a marathon. There is also a rock band, the woman Ryan is cheating with, a rookie cop, and a teacher so obsessed with the missing girl, that it screws up his on-line video role playing game.

The film builds up multiple characters in a mostly boring fashion. It isn't until the climatic ending that you begin to feel you have just seen a decent film. This film reminded me in many ways of another indie, "Garden Party." If you don't like one story or character, wait it will change. The acting was exceptionally good, however a story being all over the place is not everyone's cup of tea. If you are not an indie fan, you may not enjoy this feature.

F-bomb, sex, nudity.

4.0 out of 5 stars A little bit dark, but very entertaining November 12, 2012
By cec1410
I absolutely love films with intertwining stories that eventually connect in some way. I enjoy watching films and playing a sort of "Where's Waldo" game while I try and spot the ties and connections between the characters. It reminds me of life that way how we are all connected by the most minute interactions or coincidences, and we are completely unaware. This film did not disappoint me with its intertwining stories. It was touching, and even had a few little twists at the end.

The characters in this film are mainly connected by the disappearance of a young girl in Los Angeles, then, the plots and subplots sort of branch off from this main story. The characters are all dealing with real issues, raw issues that are somewhat deep and dark, but still relatable. They are dealing with loss, GUILT, despair, and heartache, along with many other negative and unique emotions. Although the film plays out pretty wonderfully, it is kind of a downer. Don't look for any warm fuzzies coming from this flick.

Although the film starts off a little slow, the individual tales of each character quickly propels the story onward and eventually wraps up with a killer ending.
