not what we expected, wouldn,t recommend to anyone
Have to agree with all the bad reviews - this was quite simply awful. Characters you really couldn't give a damn about, painful dialogue and a complete downer from beginning to end. I don't like Ben Stiller at the best of times and this movie hasn't changed my opinion of him. Note to self - read the reviews before ordering the movie!
Dull, dull, dull. Did I mention how dull this movie was? Seriously not funny but, 1 star to the actors for remembering their lines!!!!!
Rather dull, shallow characters, felt like giving a lot of them a slap. Grow up the lot of you.
Surprised it even got 1 and 1/2 stars ?
Even Ben Stiller couldn't save this one. Depressing.
Dont bother. Painful movie experience!
Who wrote the dialogue/screenplay? Do they REALLY talk like that in the US? Stiller was off his beaten track with this and more than likely a little off his chump.
This was a little funny and pretty interesting.
This is a terrible annoying movie!
was was Ben Still thinking?
I didn't get it, I tried. Am a Ben Stiller fan, but this film was awkward.
An action movie it isn't. In fact, very little happens. And a comedy it's not. Unless feeling sad and miserable about life having passed by at 40 is funny. But 40 is still young enough to make a connection with a 25 year old, as becomes apparent. So it is a love story in a strange sort of way. Overall, it's an intriguing and unusual character study.
2 minutes in the entire movie worth seeing. Hopeless Hopeless Hopeless
there is no way this is a comedy. waste of time and depressing
Sorry, this movie did nothing for me!
Don't waste your time or money - the worst film Stiller has made by far.
I wish I had read the reviews before I wasted my money hiring this. I'm not sure what part fell within the 'comedy' genre. I'm a Ben Stiller fan, but this was boring and had no richness or depth at all.
PS - it's hard to write these reviews when there are popups that cover up half the screen so you can't see what you've written!!
A terribly boring slow movie! The worst Ben Stiller movie. I watched it until the very end, hoping that something interesting would happen - but was even more disappointed with the ending. Don't waste your time watching it, as it really is that poor. What a waste of 2 hours of my life!!!!!
Stiller stays serious but this one never quite takes off
I wouldn't have believed it - but really is THE lousiest movie. SO slow it is painful. No true character depth and just weird. After forcing myself through the whole movie, then ending was even worse. Do not bother. Don't understand what producer or the actors were thinking?!?!
This movie was so boring. Watched it until about the halfway mark and fell asleep. Tried again the next night, but it was still dull... so didn't finish it.
Odd movie, I didn't really enjoy it that much. I am a fan of Ben Stiller, but would say this isn't his finest moment in movie history.
This was one of the worst movies of Ben Stiller that I have seen - not worth watching
I'm glad I gave this movie a viewing, despite the reviews. This is a quiet, reflective story of a man making amends for his regrets and trying to get his life together. It's a drama, with occasional subtle and clever humour. And for those who think actors must just play one type of role, I say... do you just want to do the same old thing for the rest of your life? I would have given it 2.5 stars if I could have, not brilliant - but still worth watching.
I feel I have to stick up for this movie - I really enjoyed it! Maybe not the best Baumbach picture, but if you are a fan then there is much to like. Stiller and Gerwig's relationship is original and funny. Definitely worth a look.
OMG - I didn't even watch a third of this movie - it is dreadful .... what was Ben Stiller thinking, having anything to do with this film ! a big lesson for me learnt (read other reviews first) !!!!!
PITIFUL ! I wished I'd read the member reviews before I wasted my time also
Pretty ordinary,probably the worst Ben Stiller movie iv'e seen,a big thumbs down for me.
The worst Ben Stiller movie. Don't waste your time watching this! A very boring movie!
Bloody terrible, switched it off....don't waste your money!
This movie was just bizarre, 1/4 of the way through turned it off as it was just terrible. Don't waste your time!
Worst Ben Stiller movie I have EVER seen!! Didn't think it was possible!!
Will be looking at him differently from now on!!
