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!
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.

The storyline to this film is similar to that of Pulp Fiction, Magnolia, Crash, etc. Thematically speaking, it is more like Crash. Read morePublished on March 20, 2013 by Rkilla
