Contra other reviewers, this is not really a movie about an Alpha Alpha male. It is rather, a classic portrayal of a male with severe borderline personality disorder. The hostile view of life, the lack of any feelings of empathy fpr anyone including his lover and his son, his utterly defended stance toward the world, and his inner emptiness and fears of abandonment.

Ladies, this is what BPD looks like.. A very realistic portrayal.

Note especially the women these men attract. The rescuers, the helpers, the caretakers. If you see yourself here... Please learn from this and leave early.

Most BPD disorders actually express in women not men. You can see some of the women prototypes by watching Casino, Revolutionary Road, and other flicks.

Man or woman beware... These people are emotional vampires.. They will drain you dry.. They don't mean to.. But their childhood histories were tragic.. As was yours if you are drawn to them.

Beware.

This is one of those movies that should have been a cult classic with a dedicated following, but for whatever reason it never turned out that way. A shame, says I.

It's about a meter maid who apparently has no emotion whatsoever. Apparently her life (and her job) is so darn boring that she simply learned to go through her predictable daily routine feeling indifferent at every single turn. Indifferent towards people on the street, indifferent towards life itself.

Eventually she meets a guy who's inadvertently hilarious because he's actually a really mean, ignorant and (initially) selfishly close-minded person. Soon however, he really starts falling in love with the girl, and they then develop their own issues pertaining to the relationship.

Actually they both have that one attribute in common- being sheltered.

Samantha Morton nails her performance perfectly. She never gets upset, she never expresses concern during moments you most certainly *think* she will, and she never seems like an all-around normal person. In fact the best way to describe her character would be like this- the fact she has no personality whatsoever almost MAKES her have a personality. Make sense? Considering how abnormal and offbeat she is, yeah, it kinda does.

I think it's somewhat unfair Expired missed the opportunity to gain a fanbase. It really had the potential considering the storytelling has all the right ingredients going for it- a subtlety humorous and dramatized storyline, really interesting characters, and a twist on the whole romantic genre. I really liked it.

Just be warned there's some fairly sexually-related scenes that are most definitely strong and inappropriate for the youngsters. In fact that's another interesting thing about Expired- one minute it's a harmless romance, the next it's not suitable for kids. Keep this in mind.

Caught this on Time-Warner Cable late-night on 01/02/11. Managed to sit throught the whole thing and came to the following conclusion:

In this case, Love definitely (not) in the air. Jason Patric's character is an alpha-male to the nth degree! Even when he's romantically involved, he's insulting Samantha Morton's character about her weight. Talk about low blows. But, you learn early on, he HATES WOMEN. But, as a biological creature, he has his, uh....online pornographic outlet. Even when he tries to be nice, he just can't avoid being NASTY.

Samantha Morton's character is Patric's polar opposite. She simply wants to love and be loved, she, to the best of her abilites does what she can to please this man, with varying degrees of success and failure. Never mind that she has issues of her own!

What I took from this story is that sometimes, people meet and give relationships a go, when they should run the other way. You only end up more hurt, more withdrawn and more distrusting of people (and maybe society). You have to work at relationships.

But sometimes, you should just leave. It's for the best (for both of you).

I won't say buy this DVD, but, I would recommend viewing it on cable if you get a chance!

I rate Expired: 4 stars (I credit the stars and supporting staff for trying to make the best out of a low-budget flick, a less than stellar script, etc. But, you know, I can actually imagine that there are people living this script as you read this. Sad...)

That goes to the extreme boundary of what is believable and possible but never beyond it. Most guys this abusive and narcissistic are probably in prison. Most women this fractured are in a mental institution. They bring out the worst in each other (as does their job of being cussed out by strangers all day every day.) Just when you think it can't get wierder, it always does. The 2 actors never try to keep the audience's sympathy but go the whole hog. Yet it does have a badly needed heart and sense of humor.

This little gem is well worth your time. Two lonely people try to come together, but are hampered by their lack of relationship skills. This is so lonesome. Terry Garr plays a double role as the mute mom and the talky aunt. Jason Patric is prefect as the hate-filled, angry male parking cop. The lead female actor is a British woman whose red hair could not be uglier. Perfect! The score is perfect. The script is perfect. Don't miss this little big surprise!
