    Watched this little gem last night with my wife. Though received with very mixed reviews by critics, we both really enjoyed this indie romantic comedy. Simple plot and character structure, yet provides some soulful insights into our relational needs as human beings, and the fear that often isolates us. Many Christians will find the film "theologically challenged" (and might be offended by some of the crude language), but it is not a film about man and God, but about human relationships, and the fullness we get from being together even when the world is a scary place.

    I have to say I agree with the above review, very insightful. It was not JUST a romantic comedy; it tied stories that really meant something in the film. Itâ

  1. Though his film is a tad choppy and a lot chatty, Hindman elicits sympathetic performances from leads who demonstrate a deep understanding of movie physics.

    Hindman is a stand-up comedian with many Turgenev-size issues on his mind--inadequate fathers and troubled sons, overprotective mothers, the search for belief--whose weight this slight picture can hardly bear. But the laid-back charm of Daniels and Graham's bumpy courtship gives the movie a much-needed edge of idiosyncrasy.

    The Answer Man is a passable way to kill two hours on a lazy summer afternoon, and perhaps an excuse to get out of the heat.
