Weird and in this case, Cool

This independent film directed by Adam Rehmeier is one of the most original and inspired movies I have seen recently. I disagree with the previous reviewer who calls this film an "ostensibly a traditional romcom which tries way too hard to be edgy." I would say it was the opposite for me. At no moment I felt the typical clichés that populate the rom-com genre being present here. Au contraire, it was not really a romantic comedy in the strict sense until the final act. The same reviewer alludes to "full of quippy, antagonistic dialogue from one-note characters who seem to have no redeeming features." I fail to see how a script full of snappy or antagonistic dialogue is bad. Both Simon and Patty are far from being one-note characters, and both have substantial redeeming features. It's actually Patty who brings Simon's better part to light. Patty is a rather adorable yet quirky young woman. Simon acts the bad/dangerous guy mainly for shock value, playing his "so bad, it's good" act up to the maximum. It's certain that it has dark humor and very profane language, but it reflects the narrow-mindeness from suburbia in realistic fashion. Both Kyle Gallner and Emily Skeggs are memorable in their respective roles. Although inevitably there'll be some prejudiced viewers who may confuse intensity and passion with wickedness. Highly recommended for people who can tell the difference.

Beautiful

Take a chance on this film. It isn't really that comical, it's romantic, not just for chics, it's aimed at anyone who has a heart. Easily the best film I've seen in a long time. By the time you get 60% of the way through it becomes something special, and when Patty and Simon really find each other (in the Basement - no spoilers) it's truly beautiful.

Can only say a movie you'll enjoy

Had no idea what to expect when I started to watch this at the Virginia Film Festival. It said "comedy" which evokes "Hangover" type silliness. But no -- not a goofy comedy if really a "comedy" at all. More a quirky, offbeat movie that touches so many good and warm spots. You don't see it coming. It starts with serious-seeming vulgarity by the main character. But as it develops, it just gets better and better until the end and you feel you've eaten a large, delicious meal. Probably the most enjoyable movie I saw at the Film Festival. Whenever it comes out, I will definitely watch it again. (Not want to say too much specifically so you can just let it develop without a clue where it's going.)
