An average movie

I’m well aware that the Duplass brothers are the leaders of the mumblecore genre but I haven’t seen much of their work so far and since I didn’t care much for this movie, I’m not sure if I will make much of an effort to check the rest of their work.  To be honest, I’m not really sure what the mumblecore genre is/was about but this movie was basically another quirky indie comedy which is something I have come to dread more and more recently. In this case, it was made even worse by the fact that the main characters were both some really pathetic losers. In fact, even the sub-plot involving Susan Sarandon didn’t really work. First of all, Sarandon was just miscast here. Indeed, to play a lonely woman craving for attention, they shouldn’t have cast one of the most charismatic woman in this age group. Furthermore, imagine if Sarandon’s character would have been a heterosexual man receiving some flirtatious messages from another male colleague? It would have been rather cringe-inducing and shows how misguided the whole thing was.  And, yet, there were some nice scenes here and there. For example, the scene when they crashed the Porsche was just priceless. Furthermore, all the actors involved (Jason Segel, Ed Helms, Susan Sarandon) delivered some solid performances. To conclude, even though it didn’t really work for me, I have to admit that it was still a decent watch after all and I guess it is worth a look but only if you like the genre.
