My goodness, why is this movie getting reviews so high?
Yes the setting is nice, cinematography is well done in general. By dialogs? Silly, empty at best.
The acting is not convincing. I was waiting and waiting for the movie to get better.

Overall I find the movie just pathetic. It does not happen that often that I would disagree with critics that much. Oh well. Be warned.

The idea of this movie is very intriguing, but the execution was really bad. Much of the dialogue of this movie was obviously ad-lib, which can be great with the right kinds of actors, but these actors weren't that kind. Yes, the dialogue wasThe idea of this movie is very intriguing, but the execution was really bad. Much of the dialogue of this movie was obviously ad-lib, which can be great with the right kinds of actors, but these actors weren't that kind. Yes, the dialogue was 'every day authentic'', but that just means it was as banal as most every day conversations. Good writers write good dialogue for a reason. Lazy directors forgo good writers for vapid ad-lib dialogue. This kind of movie may excite some reviewers because it is 'different', but for the average audience member it just makes for a lousy movie. Expand

from the opening minutes of this film it was trite, tedious, and extremely amateurish. I struggled to keep from walking out after a third of the way through, but stayed only because I didn't want to go home and had no other good option. Whenfrom the opening minutes of this film it was trite, tedious, and extremely amateurish. I struggled to keep from walking out after a third of the way through, but stayed only because I didn't want to go home and had no other good option. When I thought the story line was coming to life the plot just got dumber. The characters were unappealing, unconvincing, and extremely boring. The only good thing, was the scenery and cinematography, which was very excellent. Poor story, poor writing, poor performances, albeit if the actors had more to work with they might have been more convincing. Collapse

Do not go to this movie if you are tired, or you will truly fall asleep. Stupid, ridiculous and seriously, if they didn't use the "f" word, the script would probably be two pages! Love Emily Blunt and she did the best she could consideringDo not go to this movie if you are tired, or you will truly fall asleep.

Love Emily Blunt and she did the best she could considering the boring and stupid story line. Lovely scenery. Expand

Terrible. We gave it 20 mins and then dispatched it to the briny deep.

We gave it 20 mins and then dispatched it to the briny deep. The Duplass guy was just fat and obnoxious, had zero screen personality/charisma, and, like the DeWitt character, couldn't articulate a thought or even make a simple declarative statement without dropping the F-bomb every other word. Maybe it's the infantile screenwriters who think people actually "converse" this way, or, more likely, it's just that the writers have no writing talent so they air drop the F-bomb to substitute for thought. In any event, don't waste your time. And avoid any future painful eliminations by this crowd (Emily Blunt excepted, who must be ashamed of herself for attaching her name to this mess). Expand
