what a load of shite. exactly the kind of 'quirky','indie' nonsense that puts me off ever watching another movie again
not nearly as bad as juno
not as good as half nelson though
it's better than Half Nelson though (another film with Ryan Gosling), nothing happened in that film.
Some bits are daft (Like A&E giving attention to a doll while the hospital is clearly really busy) but it had heart and that's quite bloody rare in American cinema of late.
i thought it would be all like, OMG! - he's in love with a doll - LOL!! But it was actually far more understated than that and unexpectedly sweet.
It's basically just a sexed up version of Harvey though. Watch that instead x
she does look a bit like mercedes mcqueen from hollyoaks but it manages to keep sweet and entertaining.
For the ambulance and A&E reason mentioned above, not to mention the fact that everyone in the whole community accepted it with open arms and he was still able to get a girlfriend at the end of it. What a load of shit!
And he didn't even shag it once! There was only thing that could have saved that film and that would have been if he walked in and found his brother humping the doll. He was giving it some awfully shifty looks and all the way through I thought that scene was just around the corner, but it never came.
as the kind of thing that might star Jason Biggs
But he could have just felt it up a bit though. I like films to retain a bit of realism if they are supposed to be about people living in the real world. This was just unbelievable shite.
