3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as you'd expect, 28 Dec. 2012
This review is from: Your Sister's Sister [DVD] (DVD)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Not as good as you'd hope. Mark Duplass is the best thing about the film. His performance suits the improvisational dialogue, whereas the other actors look like they're doing an actors workshop. Saying that, Rosemarie Dewitt and Emily Blunt are highly charismatic actors that do as much as they can with dull script. How can you animate a character who is a sperm stealing lesbian who wants a baby? Without good actors, it's a rather shoddy film. It doesn't has the conviction to pull out the story's potential and ends with a disappointing ending. Grief and familial betrayal are things not resolved in a short stay in a log cabin. Too much 'closure' and tries to leave one end unresolved, but that being the least important. It ends up being too conventional while pretending to be a fresh take on a Romcom. Aside from Duplass and Blunts characters being a bit wet and Dewitts insincere succubus-like faux lesbian character, it has it's moments. It just lacks the depth it initially promises, as a romcom it's not bad. It's just okay, but disappointing, it could have been so much better.
