Well acted with a script that keeps a good pace, although relying on circumstances that are perhaps somewhat less than believable. A film certainly worth a bit of your time. Expand

The acting was fine, but the plot wasn't. The mere fact that the girl [Emma] in the movie couldn't suppress her libido ruined the movie for me. Probably because I hate movies with cheating girls.

Fantastic performance by Adam Scott - brilliant acting. Strong writing throughout despite some weak plot elements. Overall a very enjoyable dark comedy.

"The Vicious Kind" isn't anything we've already seen before, but lead actor Adam Scott is definitely the main attraction to the film, often making the film incredibly enjoyable with comic relief and somewhat true but rude comments about the"The Vicious Kind" isn't anything we've already seen before, but lead actor Adam Scott is definitely the main attraction to the film, often making the film incredibly enjoyable with comic relief and somewhat true but rude comments about the women race as a whole. The film definitely accomplishes what it's set out to do, which is to show that love is hurtful, consistently. The film carries the vibe of Gosling's "Blue Valentine" and Levitt's "(500) Days of Summer", which depicts love and romance in a negative light. By the end of the film, you too will feel Scott's pain by the abrupt ending. Expand

This movie is the representation of most of the human desires, some of which are seen as incorrect. It shows how a lie in a family can cause disruption through many years and how betrayal can be understood.
