The title of my review should instantly tell you that this is NOT a comedy. If you watch it thinking it is a comedy, you will be sorely disappointed, as some of the other reviewers were.
This is really more like a modern-day parable about family, money, possessions and friends.
About 5 minutes into the film, I said to my wife 'We know that they aren't real, what's the story?', thinking I was going to be bored out of my wits for the next hour and a bit. Thankfully I didn't give up so quickly and actually found it a very intriguing film.
It does not drag at all but moves at a decent pace for a film that fits squarely in the philosophical drama category.
The characters are all played well and I found myself being empathetic towards them by the end of the film. They are, as you would imagine from people living a fake life, quite one dimensional. Even 'behind closed doors' Demi and David's characters do not change very much, but you can see them reaching out for reality.
I really liked this film. It is a great parable and with the right group of friends it could stir some interesting discussions.
If you like films that make you stop and think even for a short while, then this will do that. If you are looking for a comedy, then 'Did you hear about the Morgans?' Did You Hear About The Morgans? [DVD] [2009
]might be a better choice.
hope that helps
