- I just do not find Zach Braff attractive. He does not have a chin. And yet, and yet - yes, even I am manipulated into liking him when I see him in things.
- In fact, I liked all of the actors in the thing. Likable. Oh yes, they all are. And I love that Jacinda Barrett of Real World London fame is succeeding with the acting thing.
- And I really thought her performance was quite good, in spite of some slips out of the American accent she was supposed to have. And that Rachel Bilson as the fucked-up-college-girl-other-woman was quite heavenly. Why they were both so jazzed over stupid Zach Braff I've no idea. They could do better, much.
- But what really got me about the movie was that it was a celebration of guys being fucked up commitmentphobes who can't get their shit together. Oh, except for the emotionally unavailable father of Jacinda, who was the paragon of maturity just because he never fucked around on his wife, even if he didn't make her happy either. I mean, we have Zach Braff who cheats on his pregnant girlfriend whom he won't marry because he's too much of a chicken-shit, Casey Affleck who decides to leave his wife and baby because his wife makes him feel bad (boohoo!), actor I don't know #1 who refuses to believe his girlfriend broke up with him and so shows up at her house when another guy is there - six full weeks after they broke up - and punches the guy both in the balls and the face (nice), and actor I don't know #2 who meets this girl who seems to be totally cool and awesome and with whom he has great sex and when he shows up at her house and her parents are there he bails, with no explanation, as no explanation is needed, as obviously any girl who dares to have parents and not to hide them away is after only one thing (that dreaded thing marriage, if you weren't sure what that one thing is).
- I feel like I need to take a shower. Especially because as I was watching the movie I found myself sort of enjoying it.
