Storyline

We like Florence: she's considerate, sweet, pretty, and terrific with kids and dogs. She's twenty-five, personal assistant to an L.A. family that's off on vacation. Her boss's brother comes in from New York City, fresh from a stay at an asylum, to take care of the house. He's Roger, a forty-year-old carpenter, gone from L.A. for fifteen years. He arrives, doesn't drive, and needs Florence's help, especially with the family's dog. He's also connecting with former band-mates - two men and one woman with whom he has a history. He over-analyzes, has a short fuse, and doesn't laugh at himself easily. As he navigates past and present, he's his own saboteur. And what of Florence? is Roger one more responsibility for her or something else? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Goofs

During the "teenage party", Greenberg decides to change the music on the CD player and inserts "Rio" by Duran Duran. He only presses three times the "next song" button and should therefore reach the song #4 ("Hungry Like The Wolf"). Instead, it is "The Chauffeur" (song #9 on the CD) that can be heard, to everybody's dismay. See more »

Complete waste of time
12 December 2010 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

You know those Woddy Allen movies where he was all neurotic and concerned about every single detail and the plot would jump from scene to scene only to show another "real" aspect of his personality? Well, those movies were always funny. This is not! It is a movie about an annoying and self absorbed prick who somehow finds people to support him in his egocentric whining. Of course, he just walks all over them. Would you like to see this movie? I certainly don't. I am especially upset about the "Comedy" designation of the film, as none of its scenes are even remotely funny. The mood of the movie wildly oscillates from embarrassing to sad, via boring.

Bottom line: Showing the life or viewpoint of a guy doesn't constitute a movie, even if he is half Jewish and comes from New York. The film must have a plot, something you can take away. This has none. And yes, I know some people can identify with the character and gain insight into their own lives, but I hope with all my heart there are not very many of them. Avoid this crappy thing!
