    This movies made me happy, not for a moment after it ended but it made me happy for a very long time after watching it, days even. The storyThis movies made me happy, not for a moment after it ended but it made me happy for a very long time after watching it, days even. The story is simple, warm, funny. The casting and characters are nothing short of perfect. If you have not seen this film and are reading this review looking to see if you think it is worth watch, believe me now, stop reading and start watching.

    If this movie doesn't warm your insides you must be cryogenic!!!

    Yet another movie whose success depends on flattering the viewer that he's somehow more intelligent and sensitive than most of the bozos Yet another movie whose success depends on flattering the viewer that he's somehow more intelligent and sensitive than most of the bozos on screen -- which isn't terribly hard for the writer to do, since he's written all the parts. Add to that the usual dose of post-ironic quirk, and the ludicrous notion that the lonely offer each other comfort (if that were true, why would anyone be lonely?) and we've got a Sundance award-winner. What would happen if actual artists started working in this medium? Full Review »

    Ending not abrupt enough. Ten minutes was too much of this drivel abt implausible characters going nowhere slowly.
