Editorial Reviews

Theres nothing like love to bring family tensions to a boil in this intriguing dark comedy! When Peter Sinclaire (Alex Frost, Drillbit Taylor) brings home new girlfriend Emma (Brittany Snow, Prom Night), his brother, Caleb (Adam Scott, Step Brothers), finds himself irresistibly drawn to her. As the dysfunctional family is propelled into chaos, Caleb and Emma face a mutual distrust and battle a growing sexual tension.

Adam Scott does a fine job as Caleb.

Another indie that flew under the radar, but without a doubt deserves a watch. The family angst story of two brothers interested in the same woman aggravated by bad dad relations sounds old, but the acting carries through very believably and the DVD quality turned out solid.

The Connecticut locations add a relevant blandness to these characters' dysfunctional relationships and mommy/daddy issues, but Adam Scott shines through in what I would consider his break-out performance (he got some kudos for the lame film August, and usually most recognized as being that bad brother in Step Brothers). Brittany Snow was given some notice for her bold and slightly forward role here, but I think she broke that barrier with On the Doll. I like what everyone showed here, so even though it gets slow a few times and does not explain all of the character outbursts, it should keep the discerning indie viewer entertained.

The picture and sound quality are adequate and showed no real shortcomings. The supplements include:
* Behind the scenes, 16:19 minutes. Director interviews spliced with too much clip footage, but he gives a thorough background on creation and actor support in making this film.
* Deleted scenes, 5 totaling 6:30 minutes. Four of them have optional commentary. Glad they were cut.
* Extended scenes, 5 totaling 16 minutes. Worth the watch if you REALLY liked the acting.
* Two commentaries, one with director solo and one with him and Scott.

I watched this more for J.K Simmons who plays the Father. He is superb as always but it's Adam Scott and Brittany Snow who really carry this picture. I was pretty blown away by Adam Scott in this picture. A superb performance, this guy has to be seen more. Not to give too much away I was expecting this to be more twisted than it actually turned out to be. But if you appreciate acting this is a must see. Only giving it Four as it did feel like it was plodding in places........over all well worth seeing.

This movie is a bit dark, in an edgy, more real way than I expected. Patience for the building of each character layer, worth the wait - and it's only slow the first 20min maybe. A good, different kind of movie.

This movie is easily looked over, but is one that packs a solid punch. Adam Scott, who is now mostly known for comedic roles, plays a grumpy insomniac (Caleb) who is not over a rough break-up. His little brother (Alex) comes to town for Thanksgiving and brings along his girlfriend (Emma). They seem like an odd couple because Alex is a small town, nice guy and Emma is more punk rock. Caleb slowly becomes interested in Emma because she looks exactly like the girlfriend who left him. This movie is great because of the tension between all of the characters, and the complexity of how their lives intertwine in a short time.

This movie is definitely darker than I expected, a little slow, but a good unique movie. I love Adam Scott even more after watching this, but definitely not a feel good movie, if you're into darker indie movies, this is for you.

Impressive performances by Adam Scott, Brittany Snow, and JK Simmons, and Alex Frost, who seems not to have been in much else, was good in his less nuanced role. I particularly liked seeing Scott and Simmons in dramatic roles, since I have previously only seen them in comedies.

Complex subject. At times I definitely questioned the message about women, but by the end of the movie, it's clear that all of these "betrayers" are equally flawed. Both the acting and great directing made for a movie that struck me as emotionally deep, and also intellectually stimulating. Somewhat depressing yes, but I enjoyed it and didn't come away feeling depressed. Just emotionally moved to a certain degree, and impressed by the acting and directing.

I am a writer and have much respect for fellow writers. Lee Toland Krieger not only wrote this but directed and produced as well; something I wish to do in the future. To have complete creative control over an idea makes my soul smile. I was flipping through channels and ran across this movie and decided to give it shot. It was incredible. The acting...Adam Scott, whom I affectionately call Derrick (lol his character in Stepbrothers was classic) had me on edge the entire movie. J.K. Simmons (he played the dad in Juno and Schillinger in Oz) was really good too...the entire cast did their thing. This was a really good movie, good enough to buy and I definitely don't buy movies anymore in this recession.The Vicious Kind Fat Kills

Do not even glance at reviews which spoil the plot twists or reveal the outcome. If I had known how this would end, it would have ruined the entire film for me. It is not an outrageous surprise, just an intellectual twist that made the movie much more worthwhile than I expected it to be.
If you prefer movies with some thought behind them and which develop into a satisfying ending without cliche, this little gem is for you. I bought it for Brittany Snow, who is a very nice little actress with talent. She really goes against type in this so-called "dark comedy." And, to take nothing away from her abilities, she is really outclassed in this film. I saw her as Brittany Snow playing a part. Not so with any of the other major cast. For all I could tell, they may have been the real people they portrayed.
Acting, directing, screen play and virtually everything else about this low-key drama (I did not see much comedy, dark or otherwise.) were all superb. You think it's a love story about a guy and a girl or even two brothers and a girl. You can believe that all the way to the end, and then you realize, not to give too much away, the story is not really about the guy and the girl or even the two brothers and the girl. It is much deeper than that and the final 2 scenes make you wonder at how cleverly the screen writer and the actors have led you along to a not completely unpredictable ending but to an ending that finishes the movie just perfectly.
I was afraid about 5 minutes before the end that this would turn out to be another one of those awful movies that makes me write my own ending, because none of the expected plot developments were coming to any conclusion. In fact they seemed to be going nowhere except up in the air. Then POW, right in the kisser.
