Reviews

Conrad Valmont (Jason Bateman, Juno, Horrible Bosses) is the over-educated, under-employed heir to the Valmont Hotel fortune. Though he s spent most of his adult life enjoying a playboy lifestyle on a diet of Tom Collins cocktails, at 40 years old, he finds himself suddenly cut off from his allowance and tossed out into the unforgiving streets of the Upper West Side. Luckily, he is taken in by his old friend Dylan (Billy Crudup, Eat Pray Love, Watchmen), and returns the favour by immediately falling for Dylan's beautiful girlfriend, Beatrice (Olivia Wilde, In Time, Rush). A hilarious love triangle ensues as Conrad attempts to woo Beatrice all over the city in secret. All s fair in love and war, right? That is, until she finds out he s completely broke...and Dylan finds out his best friend has stolen his girl.

I found this to be one of those films where the director is clearly enjoying himself with 'arty' filmography, but the storyline was boring and not many characters were involved. I can imagine this being produced as a play in a local theatre to better effect. There were several instances where commentary was used as in Woody Allen films, but in this film I found it annoying rather than enlightening. This disc will be one for the charity bag.

Format: DVD
Conrad Valmont (Jason Bateman) is a rich man almost 40 "easing into adulthood." He wants a relationship but has trouble with them. Then out of the blue, his parents while away, opt to get divorced and he is cut off because...he is. He rooms with a friend (Billy Crudup) and steals his prospective girlfriend Beatrice (Olivia Wilde). He tells neither of them of his financial situation, letting them think he is still rich. He has no trouble lying, stealing, borrowing, and being a general A-hole.

The movie has a monologue to fill in plot points and some theme ideas. It has some minor comedy such as when Beatrice claims she is a vegetarian not because she loves animals, but hates vegetables. The dialogue appears to be the film's strong point, although it was overly pretentious, as was the film. The film is critical of people being pretentious and those who say they are pretentious, perhaps done as a way to be critical of the great Romantic novelists or those who inherit their wealth or all those critics who are going to say this was a pretentious film.

There are scenes that are similar to what you might see in a Woody Allen film, but are second rate.

The film was boring. I couldn't relate to any of the shallow characters. Valmont was the only real developed character and he was stiff.

No F-bombs or nudity. Implied sex.

By Vinceives on 1 Sept. 2014
Format: DVD
The Longest Week feels a lot like someone asked Wes Anderson to do a cover version of Woody Allen's greatest hits, and if that sounds appealing then you'll enjoy this very much. There's some great dialogue, and Bateman convinces as a deceitful post-wealthy brat without ever defaulting to Michael Bluth (his finest role and a character with a similar backstory).
