Had some early laughs
Had some laughs early on, then became a rather cliched dumped-guy-meets-girl-who-was-right-under-his-nose relationship film. The ending was so abrupt it seemed like they really didn’t know what to do. Not horrible, but wouldn’t really recommend.
I don’t know if I’ve actually had a one night stand; perhaps in my drug addict/alcoholic days but those days are mainly a blur; especially today since they happened 20 +/- years ago. The good old days one can’t remember. Anyway…there’s a lot of that going on here. It opens up that way. Justin Davis (Taran Killam) forgot his anniversary with his girlfriend. What’s up with girls and anniversaries? Some guys (like me) don’t even remember their own birthdays. I’ve forgotten my own birthday many a time, and you know what? Who cares. I don’t. Anyway…Justin’s girlfriend is upset so she goes to a bar, gets drunk and hooks up in a one night stand with another guy or guys (I don’t remember) then broadcasts it on Justin’s favorite radio program, I guess, as payback. They break up, of course.
Justin’s a relationship guy. So, when he goes to a ‘casual encounter’ website he doesn’t seem to understand what that means; even though his friends and co-workers attempt to explain it to him. He also doesn’t understand people putting fake pictures up or lying about who they are. He just doesn’t get it. He also seems to be easily manipulated. He’s either incredibly whimpy, or just a loser. Or stretching it a bit: both. Personally, I think he’s a loser. He spends the evening with his co-worker Laura Leonard (Brooklyn Decker), who, yes, is incredibly drunk (and beautiful), but still has a conversation with Justin where you could see potential but after he drops her off he goes and has a ‘casual encounter’. But after his hook-up, he then considers Laura. His co-workers talk him out of going after Laura (though from the beginning of the film you can tell Laura is into Justin) so he hooks up with a different girl.
Frankly, I don’t see them two as a match. He’s not only a loser, in my opinion, but he’s a nervous bumbling idiot. Not that he’s stupid but that he does stupid things as an idiot would. This film ended for me 50 minutes in (I did watch the whole film; I just didn’t care after 50 minutes in) and I never really believed the Justin character. Not that people like him don’t exist; just in conjunction with this film and Laura’s character. The film itself wasn’t awful but the premise of it was. As a comedy, there were humorous scenes but none of them made me laugh out loud, as a comedy that’s not good especially with the comedic talent in this film.
Overall, it’s mildly okay but it just sucks, especially the ending. I mean, Laura catches Justin with one of his encounters an hour in, and he has to make everything right in 15 minutes — you know? before the film ends because if you minus out the credits, he only has 15 minutes to do it. In movie time, with the right kind of editing, you can stretch that for years but that’s not this kind of movie. It’s a mildly okay film that regretfully sucks because of poor writing and direction. Whatever, I won’t even remember it tomorrow.
