      Audience Member Mark Ruffalo plays an unsuccessful artist who just broke up with his art world girlfriend. He moves into a cheep apartment across from a cute girl from a small town who knows nothing about the art world. These two fall for each other right off the bat & start a secret relationship. The Mark Ruffalo character is really condescending to his new girlfriend & trouble ensues. The story is nothing innovative, the best touch are the bizarre neighbors & landlord. The love interest is a nice girl next door type as opposed to an an unattainable goddess. I really liked this realistic touch. Fun, but by no means a must see. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/14/23 Full Review Audience Member It's right up there with The Room in terms of being unintentionally hilarious. It's labelled as a comedy, but pretty difficult to tell which parts are actually supposed to be funny...Also, it was made in 2003, but seems like the entire aesthetic of the movie was determined roughly ten years prior to that... Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/18/23 Full Review Audience Member What a bad movie. There was nothing remotely interesting about it. The plot was just okay; really no reason behind it. Poor Mark Ruffalo for being stuck in this movie forever. He is always nice to watch though. So he gets my two stars, not the movie. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/18/23 Full Review nilufer e This movie is the ultimate reminder of the saying "one man doesn't make a movie". Thank goodness it was short. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member I don't know... just can't really get into movies where the central character is self-centered, self-destructive, obnoxious, and pitiful. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review Audience Member Didn't care enough to watch the entire thing. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/12/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
