A specific film for a specific audience
on November 22, 2013
I have given this 3 stars because it was well crafted and poignant. That is not to say that I enjoyed it. The film was not directed towards me. This is a gay film, which is not a criticism at all but merely that the audience is that and not straight men. Every scene is crafted to that end. Moreover, the wondrous Jennifer Aniston that many of us came to adore from other films and Friends is not present. She's on the screen, to be sure, but the mature, sultry, even sexy Ms. Anniston is AWOL; in her place is a vulnerable, insecure sensitive single who must choose between 'traditional' and...'differently oriented', i.e. straight vs. gay.
To sum up, if you like the idea of a woman having to decide between a sensitive, caring gay man vs. a 'normal guy' who has 'it all' except for any heart or personality, then this is an excellent portrayal and you should love it. If, on the other hand, you were looking for a romantic comedy with the gorgeous Jennifer Aniston as the lovable vamp, then by all means buy one of her latest films which are all of that and more. This is a poignant character portrayal only...
Sidebar: I could have sworn this film was 'rated' R when I bought it; I note it now has no rating shown. Well, unless you are a prude and are shocked at any aspect of the gay life, the film was easily ratable as 'PG' or 'PG-13' at the most...
