Philip Seymour Hoffman makes the directorial debut in this movie, in addition to being the lead actor. The movie is a sad-sack love story about a limo driver named Jack (Hoffman) and his girlfriend Connie (Amy Ryan). Connie tries to have a positive impact on his life by getting him to learn cooking and swimming. We see a contrast in the lives of Jack and Connie and their best friends Clyde (John Ortiz) and Lucy (Daphne Rubin-Vega). The love life warms up for Jack and Connie as the story unfolds but it gets sour for their friends Clyde and Lucy. We see an effort on the side of Jack and Connie to reach out for each other with a touch of humor. The key part of the movie is the director's ability to handle a relationship problem of the lead character's best friends to make it an appealing act. Hoffman has done a good job in his directorial debut, but as one expected he shines better as an actor. The subway scene and a dinner party are some of the interesting episodes of the movie. It is fun to watch this move.

This is a story about a shy nearly socially dysfunctional couple who are fixed up. Jack (Hoffman) is a Limo driver and Connie (Amy Ryan) works as a telemarketer for a funeral director. She thinks every man who places a hand on her arm is attempting to come on to her. Jack does whatever it takes to please Connie including cooking and swimming lessons. This is juxtaposed by John Ortiz and Daphne Rubin-Vega who have fixed them up. They are near the end of their relationship.

The movie was more sad than "heartfelt." It is funny if you enjoy laughing at poorly educated people trying to make a living. There were numerous awkward pauses, by design that simply didn't work well.

The lame piano music soundtrack was dreadful, but has become the norm for "heartfelt Indie" movies that lack a good enough plot to bring out emotion.

The acting was superb. Sex scene(?) wasn't as good as the one Hoffman did with Marisa Tomei. F-bomb, pot, hash, and cocaine use.

This film is a wonderful observation of life - made more poignant because we will never get to see more from Seymour Hoffman as a director. All the subtle skills that he brought as an actor to every part he played is here - both as actor and director..you will never get more involved in someone learning to swim or someone cooking dinner, ever again. The perfect film for many rainy afternoons...

Format: DVD
This quirky little play to film is sometimes moving, very well acted, but most importantly awkward at times.

It hails imagination, mostly in its début direction by Hoffman and almost has a British feel to this almost independent bit of film-making. It surrounds a relationship triangle and overall is a light, comic-like love story drama.

It will definitely help if you are a Hoffman fan, as it has a lot of hid DNA expectedly. It does combine sadness, optimism, tragedy and wit well, with droplets of bizzarity along the way.

Just what drives people to think this will be worthwhile?
This is awful - neither touching nor heartfelt.
Rather turgid and awkward.
Nothing happens - nothing. No story to speak of.
Please watch 'Lost in Translation' instead.
