    It is cleverly conceived, well acted and seasoned with blips of mildly acidic wit.

    The romantic dilemmas suffered by these twentysomethings may be universal, but their naive attempts to address them are hard to buy.

    In the central role, first-time feature helmer Alexander Poe may trigger sheepish identification among the neurotic with the protag's vaguely ridiculous reactions. While his character registers as white-bread bland, strong performances from the two "exes" save this indie from a surfeit of self-deprecating charm.

    Even taken on its own, this story of Graham (Poe), a single New Yorker feeling his way toward adulthood, feels like a promising college project that wasn't ready for the real world.

    The callow behavior that characterizes Ex-Girlfriends' lead would be less maddening had writer/director/star Alexander Poe firmly decided how to portray the bedroom follies of youth.

    The characters are flat; the voiceover is awkward.

    The romantic quest that's meant to drive the film is meaningless because Alexander Poe has extended empathy to no one besides himself.
