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.
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. Written and Directed by the talented Miranda July, the film cleverly skewers the world of installation art, weaving elements of the romantic comedy into story that is really about the need to connect in the modern world.
All these very different stories magically interlock and play out in a style that is quirky and unpredictable. In this film everyone is searching, where children long to become adults, adults yearn to recapture the innocence of youth, and everyone has difficulty finding true love at age 7 or 70. For a lot of viewers it may take a while to fully rise to July's wavelength and comprehend her offbeat sense of humour. But July stages and edits her work as if in time to an inner beat, ticking away in unpredictable fits and starts, so it's almost impossible not the get caught up in the film's sustained whimsy.
But it is July herself that anchors this film. She's such an appealing leading lady and a totally winning screen presence with her mop of curly hair and her wide inquisitive eyes. Obviously eccentric but also quite sensitive, the actress is totally in tune to the celestial coincidences that unite her characters, able to capture those small and indefinable moments of human experience. Mike Leonard January 06.

Not sure who'd "get" it though. It's proper weird but a real gem.
