  • Summary: Bobby is a struggling screenwriter who tries to get romantically involved with a friend by agreeing to take care of her dog. He's also stuck on an idea for an arty screenplay involving talking pigeons. His friend Scott is a depressed musician bored with his girlfriend and miserable in his day job. When Bobby tells Scott the idea for his new script, Scott leaks the info to Hart, Bobby’s nemesis, a playwright whose campy drama about 9/11 has won awards and a run at an off-Broadway theater. What begins as a quirky comedy about relationships and writer’s block becomes a coming-of-age tale about competition and self-reliance among the “me-generation”. (Houston King) Expand

    That Blitstein pulls off this tiredly self-reflexive conceit with relative panache is due in no small part to the scruffy grace of leads Justin Rice ("Mutual Appreciation") and indie fixture Brendon Sexton III.

    It's lively and funny, if unbalanced.

    The NYU film grad steals liberally from Woody (especially "Annie Hall") - from camera placement to body language to plot twists to the whole Ingmar Bergman thing. That's not necessarily bad, if the project works. This one doesn't - it just annoys.

    A movie where the only conception of life seems to come from other movies makes for no kind of movie at all.

    This sort of thing was indulgent enough the first time around; transplanted to the mumblecore milieu, it's intolerable.
