    The film's final plot twist is easy to spot well before it arrives, but that doesn't detract from its crafty, heartfelt, and surprisingly sound affirmation of getting hitched.

    The real star of the film, however, is Shapiro who, despite treading on marginally derivative subject matter, demonstrates a solid sense of style and a refreshingly delicate hand with actors.

    Despite the ominous feel, this is a mystery about losing or gaining lives and unknown detours.

    Monogamy sets up a nifty idea that it doesn't follow through.

    With modest resources, some nice digital camerawork and an appealing cast - the likable Ms. Jones draws you in easily - Mr. Shapiro keeps you engaged even when his story falters.

    While Shapiro does a fine job of emulating kink classics like "Blow Out," his film lacks one element that De Palma wouldn't have been caught dead without: a sense of humor.

    Monogamy doesn't manage to find anything particularly new to say, and says it very, very slowly.

    A painfully dull plunge into the suffocating self-absorption that seems to be killing modern romance.

    Plotwise, the movie can (like many a Brooklynite) barely be bothered to comb its hair. Just when the pace needs to pick up, everyone sits around discussing fruity drinks.
