  • Promising new writer-director Mark Christopher is like "Dollhouse" director Todd Solondz's more cheerful little brother. show more

  • A small-scale character piece that genuinely likes its protagonists: an overweight teen girl and an overage delivery guy. But for all its quirky touches, the comedy cleaves to formula in its depiction of how they challenge and change each other. show more

  • Embry and first-time actress Sparks have charming chemistry, but Christopher's slight screenplay wears out its welcome long before the film - which runs a scant 80 minutes - is over. show more
