Absolutely Hilarious and completely unreserved
on 16 June 2010
Independent film-maker Chris Waitt has just been dumped...again. He decides that it is time for some serious soul-searching to establish the cause of his problems. Eventually he comes up with the idea to go back through his romantic past and interview his exes to figure out why he is such a loser (his words). Whilst it may seem inherently obvious to most of us just what is wrong with Chris (his seemingly complete lack of care, dilligence, aspiration and hygiene) he sets off on the path of redemption.
The ensuing chaos is both hillarious and painful for us and Chris respectively as he is laughed at, belittled, berated and even dominated by a mistress in his quest for the answers he is looking for. The film does take a serious turn as it delves into the awkward medical world of erectile dysfunction (Chris: "In my last relationship, when we made love, it was like I was the girl") but soon returns to form as the problem is completely in his head and he realises that he might have some deep-seated emotional problems.
Whilst some of the content may have been heavily butchered in the editing room to make it seem funnier and snappier than it really is, it is hard not to believe Chris is what he says he is, as it is just so evident in every facet of his personality. He is Omega-male (the antithesis to the Alpha male) and his self-deprecation is just so painfully humiliating at points that you cannot help but laugh. And laugh you will, many, many times throughout the 90 minute bit. You may not come away with anything meaningful from the experience, but for most of us, the residual feeling will be: "At least I'm not that guy". Highly recommended for a great watch!!
