Likable, offbeat with appealing performances by Aaron Eckhart, Jessica Alba and Logan Lerman. The film works for the most part, but not entirely. It does go the extreme one too many times. The cast pulls it through though.

The kid(Logan Lerman) is like Ferris Bueller with training wheels. He's ready to rule the school after his tutelage under Bill(Aaron Eckhart) comes to a close. Mentoring this prep school loner makes Bill's midlife crisis bearable; The kid(Logan Lerman) is like Ferris Bueller with training wheels. He's ready to rule the school after his tutelage under Bill(Aaron Eckhart) comes to a close. Mentoring this prep school loner makes Bill's midlife crisis bearable; the same can be said for this sloppily written, but intermittingly entertaining film about the foibles of being priviledged(those guys, again?). Highlighted by Bill's secret filming of his wife having sex with a smarmy newsman that winds up on the internet, the corrosive marriage in "Meet Bill" somehow manages to correct itself against all logic. After all, Jess(Elizabeth Banks) is an accidental porn star. But "Meet Bill" shies away from the undue notoriety of being XXX on the www. Jess should be plotting revenge against her husband instead of helping him acquire a doughnut franchise. The couple simply moves on, but their reconciliation comes too easily, you would think. Jess' affair was recorded for posterity. In essence, "Meet Bill" presents the existence of a sex tape, then forgets to dramatize how its participants dealt with the fallout. The fallout is minimized, too. Dad's bid to be mayor proceeds without a hitch, and most egregious of all, Jess is never confronted by her friends and relatives about her online fame. Expand
