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.

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!

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.

Writer/director Matthew Leutwyler manages to challenge the concentration and intellect and attention span of the viewer in this non-linear and ultimately satisfying intertwining of stories that examine the bad in the best of us and the good in the worst of us. Against the backdrop of a child abduction case (person of interest is next door neighbor Beckworth (Greg Germann) we follow five days in the life of Frankie, a single parent detective (Julie Benz) assigned to the case, her best friend Kate (Elizabeth Mitchell) whose determination to get pregnant keeps her from confronting Ryan (Dane Cook) her psychologist husband's infidelity with rock singer Tara (Aja Volkman) while he is attempting to reconcile his parents (his fragile mother played by Barbara Hershey) long separation, an on-line video game addicted school teacher Carter (Mark Kelly) and his obsession with the missing child that pushes him to the edge of vigilantism, a beat cop Jerry (Erik Palladino) grieving over the violent death of his wife, Drew (Miranda Bailey) recovering addict and her wheel chair bound brother Erik (Vincent Vinteresca)preparing for the LA marathon, and Allegra (Kali Hawk), a self-loathing African American TV writer's search for love who happens to be a patient of Ryan's (and who is on the brink of a mixed courtships with a shy and likely virginal Evan played by Zack Gifford). The string of stories asks us to look at their lives (and ours!) and to take action where it is needed to end injustice.

The cast of characters is so strong that despite the rather confusing progress o the story we get to know each character very well. The ending is exceptionally well handled. This is one o those surprise films that appears on the surface to be one of those shallow/too much too fast director's egomaniacal art films, but by film's end the audience simply cannot fail to be touched in many different positive ways. Grady Harp, August 12
