      Audience Member That Carradine is REAL hard to look at it. Whats with all the scars/ marks on her wrists?? Someone throw this broad a cheeseburger already - heavy on the Mayo! Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/05/23 Full Review Audience Member Sehr oberflächliche Darstellung mehrerer Menschen, die experimentieren bevor sie erkennen, dass das was sie hatten das richtige war. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/29/23 Full Review Audience Member good drama about relationships. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Not seeing where the angst is coming from. The saving grace was Maria Dizzia. She was the only emotionally grounded presence in the film. The sad part is the unintended message that the white, aloof, (mostly) heteronormative couple get to fuck up other people's lives and continue on happily ever, despite the film's hard effort showing that their relationship would never work. I was happy, happy when it was over. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/19/23 Full Review Audience Member The Miserably Sad would have been a better title for this exercise in bitterness. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member Credible? No. Laughable? Characters who get on your nerves? And more.

      Randy Myers San Jose Mercury News Sexy and soapy, this modern-day romance about sexually adventurous couples mixing things up is a gem. Aug 19, 2013 Full Review Stephen Farber Hollywood Reporter Evans directs energetically, and the personable actors help to keep us involved, but the picture skims stubbornly along the surface. Aug 19, 2013 Full Review Gary Goldstein Los Angeles Times An engaging look at a pair of New York couples whose love lives intersect, crisscross, circle and backtrack in hip and provocative ways. Rated: 3.5/5 Aug 16, 2013 Full Review Nicholas Bell IONCINEMA.com Evans' film is one of the rare examples depicting people that exist in a recognizable environment, each struggling, as we all do, to achieve that tenuous idea we perceive to be happiness, and the sadness that must accompany in order to appreciate it. Aug 22, 2019 Full Review Kam Williams AALBC.com You almost need a score card to keep track of all the coupling, uncoupling, and re-coupling, but the out-of-the-closet antics are amusing enough to intrigue. Rated: 3/4 Aug 16, 2013 Full Review David Noh Film Journal International An intriguing urban subject is completely done in by a dreary, banal script, making you wonder why we should care about these wannabe hipsters.
