Delpy's manic energy shoots through this meet-the-parents comedy like electroshock, resulting in a movie that is as acutely painful as it is acutely funny. show more

I loved everything about this movie. Foreign and foreign oriented films are not for everyone, and many do not understand where they are coming from. Julie Delpy, as usual, was brilliant, and with Adam Goldberg added, they made a perfect comedy team. This wasn't supposed to be serious, so everyone lighten up when you see it.
this movie acts like a film school thesis project. if i were the professor...an A for trying but a D minus for it's result... hard effort,as she wrote directed and starred in it.....please dont waste your time.
I really liked this movie! It was a funny look at character studies of 2 neurotic and quirky individuals, making up an interesting study in relationship dynamics. There were several spots in which I had to laugh out loud, which is not typical for me in movie theaters. If you like the funny quirkiness of the old Woody Allen characters and their interplay, you will like this movie! It was a bit long, and could have been condensed a bit, esp. toward the end, but I was glad I saw it and would even see it a 2nd time.
