Plot Summary
After being dumped by her boyfriend, Ryan (John Krasinski), for no discernible reason, graduate student Sara Quinn (Julianne Nicholson) searches for answers by embarking on a unique research project. She interviews a variety of men about their impulses, motives and relationships with women. But, as she probes the perplexing psyches of unfaithful, womanizing and embittered males, she's unprepared for their often disturbing responses -- and what they say about the truth of human behavior.

  • What this arid and arty exercise offers is the opportunity for a bunch of actors, many of them tethered to TV series, to deliver theatrical monologues pulsing with misogyny and narcissism. It's like second-rate Neil Labute. show more

  • In his directorial debut, Krasinski doesn't seem to believe in his hideous men so much as he appears intimidated by them. show more

  • One hell of a date movie. A surgical examination of the male psyche based on David Foster Wallace's book and written and directed by John Krasinski, there is plenty of food for thought and argument. show more
