This movie is well-constructed and racy in an intellectual and sensual sense. What happened to the screams into the void, the cries for more and the desperation for meaning that afflicted the characters in "L'Ultimo Bacio" and seems to be an afterthought in a redrafted tale about the fragility of the psyche and the crass expectations we feel obliged to meet and rejoice within.
Something is lost in the translation, but the undercurrents are aflowing with enough force to warrant watching and perhaps even comparing. If you are verging on 30 and thinking about getting married you'll end up getting stuck in a nostalgic disoriented displaced mood.Read more ›
A paragraph for the character of Jenna (played by Jacinda Barrett). Wow, the portrayal is just so amazing and real, my wife and I were both affected very much by it (my wife was in tears in the first Chris/Jenna confrontation and then of course the Michael/Jenna immediately after). The acting was the most honest I've ever seen a female actor allow themselves to go to. I saw some comments about the physicality of Jenna's character, personally it was spot on, my wife would certainly push/smack/slap me if I'd behaved even close to the Michael character. This could be direction as well as Jacinda of course. If so, very nice Tony.
Great movie overall, excellent casting and I was very surprised by how much I enjoyed it. I did not find it depressing at all, which is a word I've heard associated with the movie often. The movie may be depressing for those under 20ish, but that is only because they've yet to experience just how factual and honest the movie actually is. It's not depressing, it's real life.
However, what I wanted to say here and in particular in response to a previous review by Forrester, the portrayal of women in this film does certainly fall in line with the traditional "female" role but not necessarily real women. While I may be the commitmentphobe and therefore empathized with Braff until his indiscretion, let it be stated that not all women are ditzy college girls desperately running after taken men or baby seeking marriage craving women.
Furthermore, one can empathize with Affleck's wife in the film. While both certainly need marriage counseling, her behavior is not so crazy given the possibility for post partem and the very real experience of no longer being a person but instead being a mother. Staying at home with the kids is not the bon bon eating, soap opera watching experience some would paint it is.Read more ›

It's a pretty good tale about what people go through when they see a future they didn't plan for. Zach Braff plays a guy with a great job, an awesome girlfriend (Jacinda Barrett),... Read morePublished 7 days ago by cpurser
