A painfully slow, unfunny comedy, starring John C.Reilly as a loser, who meets a woman. This woman has a manipulative child, cue problems. It is less unoriginal than it sounds however. It is quirky and offbeat, indie in feel (with some good music), and keeps promising to be funny but simply isn't. It is somewhat smart and sophisticated, which you will either get and appreciate or totally miss, but it is very understated and confused as to what it is. Arty, odd and promising, until Johah Hill pops up, then it becomes a bit more mainstream and like Marmite (like it or loathe it).
Reilly is good in this, if not verging on the creepy, but still remains a poor man's Will Ferrell, and Hill's inclusion is grating and wasted. An indifferent kind of movie, but please watch it knowing it is NOT a comedy and you may like bits.
Shame as the cover and trailers present this as a comedy and it is not.
