Part of the limp-rag ambience is due to Talt, who seems to be channeling Sarah Jessica Parker - which, unsurprisingly, does not work.
It's an inoffensive, undercooked film without much to say, but there are flashes of potential.
Nothing terribly special here, but perfectly played and a spiritual cousin to such early '90s indies as "Naked in New York" and "Ed's Next Move."
Today's romantic comedies may be the most dire product being rolled off American filmmaking assembly lines.
Exactly the movie that one expects it to be -- a frustrating quality for some, but smooth medicine for those who trust and like writer-actors' puppy dog tales that unfold loosely in the vein of Ed Burns.
Take (500) Days of Summer and Garden State, strip away their charms and you end up with Language of a Broken Heart, a handsomely shot but tired pile-up of indie rom-com clichés.

An entertaining enough Prodigal Son drama about a just-dumped love guru who finds the girl of his dreams when he returns home from the big city to lick his wounds.
The rom-com genre keeps scraping bottom, and this particular annoyance is about as low as you can get.
Lacks complexity, realism, wit and sophistication. Julie White radiates panache, though.
