If professional critical opinion on this movie is any guide, middle-aged white males like me are really just embarrassing to everyone, and our problems -- unfulfilling careers, divorce, widowerhood, chemical dependency -- are just not worth watching. The world seems to think we'd be better off dead, the sooner the better. That way, my generation -- given the appellation "X" by cynical Madison Avenue marketers who couldn't figure us out -- will no longer be able to bother anyone with our loud and nasty music, our nasty cynicism, our nasty skepticism, our nasty lack of pretension about ourselves.

Well, NOT SO FAST, you goody-two-shoes, you nice people, you sensitive people briefly troubled with *practical* problems that have achievable solutions, you Millennials, you pursed-lipped old Boomer ladies, whoever the hell y'all are. We're still here, we're still partying, we still have the best music, and you know what? -- you're not invited. Get out.

The movie clearly touched raw nerves, particularly among professional reviewers whose byline photos show that they're just as "middle-aged" and "white" as the characters in Mark Pellngton's film. The other offended group were tenderfoot Millennials who resented the movie's dismissal of them, to say nothing of them being depicted as snotnose brats full of Oprah-wisdom and faux-entitlement. (The aging GenXers in the movie at least earned, or in Jeremy Piven's case, stole, their OWN money.) Former porn-star Sasha Grey's presence also seemed to offend everyone. I was glad to see her, myself, but that goes along with my disgusting sense of "entitlement", I suppose.

I found it interesting and unusual, though the actual plot is unlikely. The casting and acting were excellent. The actors are all seasoned pro's at the top of their game. It was worth watching just for that. I liked it enough to watch the whole thing. I intend to watch again and pay more attention.

This isn't a movie I would buy in DVD or Blu-Ray, but it is worth checking out on TV if you get premium service.

Looking for something different than the usual namby pamby Hollywood dreck, and with great acting performances and a tremendous soundtrack? This may be the flick for you.

Just remember...I said it was "different." And it certainly
Is.

I have to say this is some of the best acting I have ever had the pleasure of watching. The performances by all four men are beyond visceral. Heartbreaking individual stories culminating in a week-long tragedy of Shakespearean proportions gives the viewer a surrealistic insight to the unique bond between men. The characters are somehow both despicable and endearing. A promise made is a promise kept, no matter how grim outcome.

The cinematography and the acting is real good, the plot is kind of ridiculous. It's like a frat boy pipe-dream to suspect the mindless intensity of a bunch of guys who seem to know very little about each others lives would have a suicide pact about what they will be like when they are grown ups. After the first guy croaks the whole movie get an extra sprinkling of foolishness. I liked it enough to watch the whole thing but was very disappointed at the ending. I would have appreciated something either completely disastrous or understated, not the lame cop chase. TL:DR- "meh"

Spoilery sort of review... the first half of this movie is a drug binge of middle-aged dudes. The kind where you could clean or talk on the phone and not miss much of anything important. I did notice in the beginning the focus on what pill bottles the doctor unpacked and wondered if this had some kind of significance later on.

And SPOILER!: Apparently one of the prescriptions can cause suicidal thoughts and actions (I looked it up because it was bothering me). The turning point came when the men were gathered around the table and the doc was going around "checking" them and putting a pill in their mouth with the camera focusing on one male getting a different pill from the others. Guess which one? Yep, the one that causes suicidal thoughts. Nothing was said at any point in the movie, but I have to wonder if this was a not so subtle clue by the directed for the mayhem that follows.

I wish I could give this 2 1/2 stars because I don't quite hate it, but I didn't like it either.

Rob Lowe, Thomas Jane and Jeremy Piven star in this critically panned 2011 film that flew under most people's radar. I Melt With You chronicles a reunion getaway of four men in their early 40's. Their get together, which starts as a couple nights of drugs, drinking and debauchery quickly spirals into something deeper and darker.

I Melt With You is not for everyone and initially I didn't think it was for me. But I stuck with it and despite several flaws, it's definitely a film that has some merits and, if nothing else, it gets credit for being a hauntingly emotional character study of middle age crossed with major life struggles.

The directorial style is not going to be to everyone's liking. Mark Pellington's shaky camera movements, off angle shots and blurry focuses might not be your cup of tea but past those (sometimes hard to ignore) aesthetics, there is a movie that more people to see. Even if you don't like the film, I give credit to the stars for taking a risk and making this outside the box drama.
