She plays the same character quirky messy girl rom com girl in everything i've seen her in. Yawn. Is she like this in real life? Its abit like being hit over the head repeatedly with a strawberry shortcake. I thought this trope had died with Zooey Deschanel and Natalie Portman in Garden State (the latter is actually pretty great, hence all the copycats). We luv her for her 'uniqueness' but the thing is... being a skinny white indie girl isn't very new is it? At least in this story we don't have to put up with any bourgeois crap. She lives in an trailer, but still somehow manages to make it cute and upbeat! My final note (spoiler alert) is that... i think the main male character in this film was abit of a philandering ahole (in a 'nice guy' poly disguise) and a pretty crap parent and why wasn't he reprimanded instead of getting the girl? No doubt some would argue with this judgement, but every rom com has a falling out and a getting back together. To me, it felt shallow and rushed. In any case, a different leading lady could've changed the entire tone of the film. Maybe the new generation of viewers haven't met the manic pixie dream before? It's grating af to see it's return.
Zoe (Noel Wells) is stalled, stoned, broke and stuck in a series of one night stands. While salvaging her failing business, she falls in love for the first time with Paul (Josh Radnor). There's one problem, Paul is married to Jane. Through inspirations only Austin could provide, Zoe learns what "adulting" really means.
