Josh Radnor evolves as an author, but needs to do much more

Compared to "happythankyoumoreplease", this is much more mature. The story is more mature, the humor is more mature. Not just because the main character is older and not just because he's less of a Ted Mosby of HIMYM fame, and the whole setup has very little similarities w/HIMYM. There's one _great_ joke and several very good ones, though there are less good ones in total (compared to "happythankyoumoreplease"), which is OK, since the story is more mature.

But, it fails short of being a very good or great movie/comedy. Mostly because Radnor seems afraid to explore interesting opportunities. Sure, there are people who are like that, and you can say that movie is showing such people, but, well, showing such people is not well suited for a good movie, especially a comedy. At least the way that the story is positioned.

Also the whole "you're better off dating someone your own age" feels way too politically correct and somehow unworthy of Radnor (the movie actually uses the politically correct term "age appropriate"), as Radnor seemingly stands for "good and nice things, regardless of political correctness". You would expect "you're better of dating someone you really love, regardless of age" from such a guy.

So, Radnor needs to mature more and not be afraid to present his nice and funny view of the world, the politically correct police be damned! :) If he does that, he could make a great movie some day.

I hope he does. Because, if he doesn't, that would mean that Barney Stinson failed to "teach him how to live"! ;-)

A movie with a great moral

There are only a few movies out there which have a good moral to it, well this is a movie which comes under that. The movie is about a adult who thinks that only his college days had something meant to it, not his adulthood life. This movie has everything from romance to comedy to drama. I really liked this movie from all aspects, from the moral to the decisions Jesse makes in this movie. In all, it was a great movie to watch.

Awful. An agonizing watch

I don't know what weed are people who wrote positive reviews for this piece of s h i t on, but it must be really good.

Deceived by a trailer that creates the illusion of a decent rom-com on the glorious topic of relationships between a 22-year-old college sophomore and a 35-year-old liberal arts junkie, I was not hoping for much. In fact, I would have been happy with the very minimum: a few good self-indulgent jokes about 30something men and age difference in relationships, a flirtatious and entertaining college student that would light a sparkle in that man's existence, a few outworldly romantic scenes and a few inspiring shots of beautiful places. That's it! Honestly, I did not even dare expect some depth of conversation or character. But this film proved unable to deliver even the bare minimum and the agony of the screen-writer had me and my girlfriend shaking our head in disbelief at how bad a film can be.

Okay, on to the gist. The film tells the story of the completely unremarkable 35-year- old Jesse who is bored the heck out of his life, obviously does not have a job, dreams or any purpose in life whatsoever. This vegitative inhabitant of New York City also feels an inexplicable nostalgia about his university years. Want to know why? Don't expect a logical explanation from this former 'excellent' liberal art student beside clich├ęs so painful to listen to that it is almost funny.

Lo and behold, the aforementioned cipher who is also a complete failure in life meets sophomore Zibby (short for Elisabeth). Did I say meet? Let me preface this correctly by saying that our imbecile of a hero is also an impotent man. When he sees the cute at rare times, but mostly average-looking Zibby, he does not dare talk to her and their meeting is aranged by an entertaining nature hipster of a dude that is the only bright spot in the film.

What follows then is such a complete and massive pile of dog sh-it beta-male behavior and pseudo-romantic non-sense that is equal parts painful and depressing.

If you want to see one of the worst rom-coms, this is an educative watch, but for all else, stay away. Stay away.
