A good movie

Since I kept hearing some pretty good things about this movie, I was quite eager to check it out. Well, even though it was indeed pretty good, to be honest, somehow, it still slightly rubbed me in the wrong place. First of all, I don't know, it seems that, by now, I have seen too movies dealing with a character with a terrible handicap and, yet, the guy still turned out to be terribly smart, witty and inspirational. Wouldn't it be refreshing to see someone in this situation understandingly dreading his life and acting like a major douchebag with other people? The other thing was that I wasn't really convinced about this whole sex-surrogate concept. I mean, even though they explained that she was something completely different, eventually, to me, she still seemed to be a prostitute providing some special skills to her profession. In this case, it wasn't helped by the fact that her husband didn't have a regular job and, therefore, pretty much lived like a pimp. Finally, it might seem a ridiculous detail but I don't believe that any woman could get an orgasm just like that without some major work from her or his side. Still, I had never seen a movie dealing with this subject before so it was really interesting and John Hawkes and Helen Hunt both gave some really solid performances. Anyway, to conclude,  even though it didn't completely work for me, it was still a decent watch and it is definitely worth a look.
