Dedication is a modern love story in which a misanthropic, emotionally complex children’s book author named Henry is forced to team up with a beautiful illustrator after his best friend and creative collaborator passes away. As Henry struggles with letting go of the ghosts of love and life, he discovers that sometimes you have to take a gamble at life to find love.

This is not your standard romantic comedy. The DVD box wants you to believe it is, but anyone looking for something like "How to Loose a Guy in 10 Days" is sorely mistaken. "Dedication", is a beautiful and heartfelt film tho, Justin Theroux makes a sensational directing debut. Fine performances from the always great Billy Crudup and the sweetheart only known as Mandy Moore. This is a film about redemption, loss and healing. Two lost souls who manage to find each other. Great music, great visuals and good work from all supporting players (Tom Wilkinson, Dianne Wiest, Christine Taylor, Martin Freeman, Peter Bogdanovich) make this a neat little indie film to see.

a bit dark, a big uncooth and broken, but beautiful, shining nevertheless.
I'm hesitant to compare this film to Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless mind. Still, it's very much that kind of genre. So if that's your thing, this movie will deliver in every possible way and throw you through an entire spectrum of emotion and then some. It's believable, original; and yet still, very magical. Don't be fooled by the bland cover art, it's fantastic.

Yes, this is a romantic comedy. A romantic black comedy, but there are definitely elements of humor in it that any person will get. Your mother finding your vibrator, the classic "protagonist as an antagonist," and two people who loathe each other but truly have no reason to.

What some people might find unfavorable is the very bleak setting the movie has both visually and through both the writing and acting in the film. Not surprisingly, the hilarity of this film comes from the seemingly tragic moments. Billy Crudup as Henry Roth is excellent. Finally, a character within a romantic comedy who is multi-dimensional, interesting, and I absolutely hate him. He cures his fears by resting on his back and putting heavy objects on his chest. He is someone who has no stable ground, someone constantly floating away from where he wants to be, but he continues his current path because it's all he knows and all he's aware of. Rudy is his mentor and strangely both invites and rejects Henry's current situation. He's a successful author of children's books, but what does that mean if he can't make any human connection?

Mandy Moore surpised me as Lucy. At first she appeared a little too weak for Henry's character. The scene of them in the restaurant and Henry comparing Lucy to the waitress was so beautifully offensive that it offended me. But I think in that moment Lucy realized what she was working against and found that instead of being cruel to Henry (which is what he was used to), she would show him kindness instead. This is what was different about the film to me. A gut reaction from any human being in a moment like that is pure hatred, but Lucy took a different direction, and it was one that would change everything.

I saw this movie in the theaters and had to buy the dvd. First of all, I love Mandy Moore and would buy anything with her in it. It's a romantic love story about a man with serious issues and he falls for Mandy. Very good.

Format: DVD
Henry Roth (Billy Crudup) writes books for children all the while
suffering from the ramifications of a childhood with a missing father
and an abusive, probably violent, mother. He has a bit of an OCD
problem as well.

His mentor, best friend, and parent replacement, is Rudy Holt (Tom
Wilkinson), who illustrates Henry's books. When Rudy dies, Henry is
devastated. He keeps imagining seeing Rudy, thus continuing to let
'Rudy' tell him how to handle Life. Something Henry is not very good at
at his own.

He is teamed up by his publisher Planck (Bob Balaban) with a new
illustrator, Lucy (Mandy Moore). In the beginning, he treats her like
he would anybody else, which means mean, but it becomes very clear that
she is a nice person and quickly he begins to like her. But he doesn't
know how to break the habit of being strange and sarcastic. (Anybody
who's been shy and hurt knows that being rude or weird is a perfect way
to stay safe; to keep people away from the core).

Here is what he tells her in one long hilarious monologue which
conveyed by the brilliant Billy Crudup comes out exasperated,
hesitantly and too fast all at the same time and with a voice that is
nearly broken , due to the fact that he has realized that he's told her
far too much:

"I hate my mother I hate my goddamn dead father more, Rudy was the only
friend I ever had, I had a girlfriend once who I used to like to
masturbate to more than have sex with, carrots and snakes frighten me
um I'm superstitious about the numbers (3. 5.

At first my roommate considered turning it off cause Billy Crudup's character is pretty terrible. Crude and insensitive there wasn't much redeemable about him, but I recommend continuing watching even if you experience the same feelings. Because what was sadly funny before becomes really endearing and funny. You come to love his character all of the characters and acting were great. Overall an enjoyable movie!
