It really is good, albeit in ways that are different from other movies.

The movie captures, as well as any other, the feeling of partying into oblivion, minus the next-morning internal pitchfork stabs. Think of a wild friend you wouldn't want to emulate but can't let go of.

When so many movies can't even exact one strong emotion from viewers, here is a motion picture that frustrates, haunts and fascinates in equal measure.

An aggressive look at men behaving badly will provoke strong reactions pro and con.

A film that will polarize audiences, but nonetheless one that I found rather profound. Perfectly cast and scored, I MELT WITH YOU is like a post-FIGHT CLUB Chuck Palahniuk novel come to life.

Director Mark Pellington creates complex characters in his new thriller I Melt With You, but unfortunately fails to deliver a realistic, intriguing story.

Has the look of a John Cassavetes film, but with wimpy, colorless characters and a lot more drugs, death and color.

Former porn star Sasha Grey turns up in a small role, and I daresay that the blunt, single-syllable scripts employed in her erotic films were Oscar-worthy compared to this drivel.

The actors do their best with what's been thrown at them-such a waste of so much talent-but by journey's end the film collapses on itself.

The best-looking bad film of 2011, I Melt with You squanders a fine acting quartet with self-indulgent existential angst among characters who are impossible to like.

Laughably awful melodrama.

Whether you're male or female, going through a mid-life crisis is no picnic. But watching the way it's depicted in 'I Melt with You' may be even worse.

Instead of sympathizing with these jackasses, one wants to scream exactly what they don't want to hear: "Oh, grow up."

December 12, 2011
This is meant to be probing and piercing, and it is merely rancid, shallow and bilious.

The actual result is sad, pathetic, anxious, and depressing.

A fanfare for the common jerk that taints every '80s-era alt-rock soundtrack tune it touches, "I Melt With You" assuredly marks itself as one of 2011's most ludicrous releases.

By the end, you feel nothing, not even contempt.

If it weren't played so very straight, this jaw-dropping thriller might pass for an accurate satire of Hollywood self-indulgence. Instead, it serves as a prime example.

Although a stark performative moment here and a cold, sexy shot there slip through, all of the film's lesser ambitions are undone by its most risible one - to be serious, and thus be taken seriously.
