Movie Info

6 Month Rule revolves around a bachelor who follows a set of rules in order to avoid emotional attachment, the most important being: there is no woman so perfect that you can't get over her in six months. Knowing that he will get over her allows him to dismiss relationships easily and without regret. Until he meets a girl who changes everything. -- (C) Official Site

Funny and fresh.

Weaver's last ditch attempt to upend rom-com convention and rewrite the movie as a skeevy lout's comeuppance hardly makes up for the clichéd slog that comes before.

Imagine Tucker Max minus the charm and you've got . . . well, Tucker Max, but also Blayne Weaver, the star-writer-director of the indie rom-com "6 Month Rule."

An ostensible romantic comedy that's really just a grating portrait of an irredeemable jerk.

As with the latest Kate Hudson comedy, it's a formula for irrelevancy pretty much as a rule.

Budget indie-house comfort food for the '90s-romcom-besotted soul.

If the plotting and payoffs of this love triangle are a bit problematic and less satisfying than one wished, there are also pleasant inversions to be found in the film's finale, reminding viewers that every down is a prelude to an up, and vice versa.

July 29, 2012 Full Review Source:

There are some scattered amusing moments among the supporting characters, but the protagonist is consistently smug and pretentious.

June 26, 2012 Full Review Source:

The film is far too indulgent with its lead character to do more than hint at the ways that one form of male egotism can morph into another.
