IF YOU GO TO JAIL, WE CAN'T BE TOGETHER,
This review is from: Barefoot [DVD]  [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
Jay (Scott Speedman) likes to drink, gamble, speed, smoke, and go to strip clubs. Unfortunately, even with an MBA he isn't much good at it. On parole, he lands a gig mopping floors at a mental institution. He also has outstanding gambling debts. His family has money as he goes to New Orleans (from LA) to his brother's wedding. Pressed for a date, he opts to take with him newly escaped mental patient Daisy (Evan Rachel Wood). She is child like and honest. She will say anything to anyone and needs to be protected, the type of girl guys easily fall in love with. She doesn't like shoes.
This is another quirky romantic comedy. We have entered a downward spiral where each romantic comedy has to be odder than the previous one, irregardless how inane the ending or impossible the situation or how awkward they make us feel while trying to make us feel good.
Evan Rachel Ward was delightful in her role, although her scripted character was not convincingly real. Jay is a guy whose character is difficult to connect with, oh poor little rich kid.
The film makes for a good rental for lovers of quirky romantic comedies. 3 1/2 stars
No sex or nudity, although there are some strip joint scenes, they are in bikinis. I don't recall any F-bombs although rated PG-13 for "brief strong language." I may have missed it.
