5.0 out of 5 stars I loved it, but I can see why others wouldn't 18 Feb 2010
Format:DVD
I really enjoy reading all the reviews on Amazon and seeing how divided opinions can be. I loved this film, but I thought I would because most of my favourite films are a bit unusual. I really didn't want it to end.

Yes, it is a bit of a plotless indie film. But what's wrong with that? In a previous review someone said the characters aren't believable. Yes, they are unsual. They are supposed to be; that's one of the things that makes the film interesting and enjoyable. And there are people on this planet who are far more eccentric and unusual than the people in that film, so to me they are believable.

A few highlights (without spoilers):
There is a brilliantly emotional scene with a goldfish, and the scene when the brothers are on the computer together had me in stitches. The child actors in the film are very good, especially the youngest one.

I can't think why there would be any damage done to any of the child actors in this film, as a few other reviews suggested. Children are far more aware and intelligent than many people give them credit for. In my opinion there was nothing disturbing in it. There was total naivety from a seven year old and some teenagers experimenting.

I thought it was an intriguing, artistic, quirky and heart warming film. It contains some original ideas, and some brilliant moments that might stay with you for a long time. I really enjoyed it, but I dont think my Dad would.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unusual and surprising 27 Sep 2006
Format:DVD
Excellent central performances and a low key storyline combined with beautiful photography make this a truly enjoyable film. If you're scared of the notion that children might ever use the internet or think about sex, of course, stay away. But then, if you're that narrow minded you're probably not interested in Indie films anyway. Miranda July's love interest with his indie beard and shoe salesman suit is mesmerising, the child actors are completely without Hollywood sheen- they're great, and the rest of the cast are fabulous too. This is just a lovely film. Make sure you don't miss it.

4.0 out of 5 stars "Pooping back and forth forever" 28 Jan 2006
By A Customer
Format:DVD
Suburban shoe salesman shoe salesman Richard (John Hawkes) is having a bad day. When he finds out that his wife is leaving him he reacts by setting his own hand on fire. Meanwhile, eccentric video artist Christine (Miranda July) makes ends meet as a taxi driver for the elderly whilst unsuccessfully trying to get her work exhibited in a cynical, unwelcoming art world.
Accompanying one of her regular clients on a shoe-purchasing expedition, Christine begins a reluctant courtship with the emotionally burned Richard, who believes the right pair of shoes can change a person's life, but who hasn't quite figured out how to be a responsible father to his two young sons. Christine and Richard have obviously formed some kind of connection, but both are so dysfunctionally shy, that a substantial connection seems unlikely.
Richard's 7-year-old Robby (Brandon Ratcliff) loves playing on his computer and enters into an Internet flirtation with a mysterious older woman, seducing her with his infantile obsession with poop. His 14-year-old Peter (Miles Thompson) finds himself on the receiving end of a challenge between two precocious girls (Natasha Slayton, Najarra Townsend) who wish to know which one of them gives better oral satisfaction.
And lets not forget the 12-year-old neighbor girl (Carlie Westerman) obsessed with acquiring first-class consumer items for her hope chest. She likes to parade her purchases for all to see, especially for Peter with whom she has a bit of a crush on.
Peppered with bizarre characters and oddball scenarios, You and Me and Everyone I Know is like nothing you've ever seen before.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quirky characters whose lives interconnect. 24 April 2010
By Ernie
Format:DVD
Quirky, funny, charming, endearing and at times depressing, `Me and You and Everyone We Know' follows several characters whose lives, knowingly or unknowingly, interconnect with each other. Each of the characters suffer from varying degrees of isolation and loneliness, all seeming to need someone in their lives to love and be loved in return. As far as a plot goes, it's basically a slice of life film, following the various characters as they each go about their daily lives, with the main storyline within the film revolving around Christine, a part time taxi driver and performance artist, Richard a recently divorced shoe salesman, and their awkward and hampered relationship. Overall, if you like films by Todd Solondz or Wes Anderson which feature awkward characters and moments then `Me and You and Everyone We Know' is well worth a look.

5.0 out of 5 stars Film bliss 7 Feb 2007
By Ellie
Format:DVD
My favourite film for some time. But it is for people who like 'living art' as it is not so good on hot narrative, action, location. It is weird in parts and bounces around the edge of where I feel comfortable. I sat down to watch it not knowing much about it and not expecting much but by the time the shoe salesman talked about shoes and pain, I was hooked. The child actors are amazing. I was devestated when the final credits came up as I could have watched another 2 hours! I hope MJ makes another movie.
