    One of the critics compared this to "Blue Valentine," which is ridiculous. In the latter film, Michelle William and Ryan Gosling make you care about what happens to the couple. (Admittedly, it's sad.) In this one, you figure out how their little melodrama should end way before the lead characters do.

    I'm getting to the gist of it. It was a horrible movie that just wouldn't end and when it did it was like a big giant middle finger. The first 30 minutes was beautiful and then it became a repetitive cycle of awkward, stupid, and mind numbing. This movie was anything but awe-inspiring. If you decide to watch it despite warnings at least buy a big bucket of popcorn... you'll need it.

    They have the same phone. And that's what my unconscious mind was thinking whilst my conscious mind was being bored to death. She's hot thouugh so that's what the one point is for.

    Felicity Jones shines in Drake Doremus' deceptively simple romance, a refreshing take on an age-old dilemma.

    If you're making a movie that purports to be about real love, at the very least, you have to make the audience care whether the lovers work out their problems.

    Yelchin doesn't generate the same warmth or passion that Jones does. That is partly by design, as this whole affair was her idea, after all.
