"Nesting" is a sitcom, but a really slow and dull one that barely grinds out 22 minutes' worth of plot to fill a 90-minute hole.
"Nesting" deals with an evergreen question, grappling with aging, maturity, responsibility. Unfortunately, the person doing that grappling is so lax he doesn't seem worth knowing.
Writer-director John Chuldenko stretches a sitcom episode premise to feature-length breaking point in "Nesting."
"Nesting" takes an old idea and tosses in a few today-sounding phrases in hopes of coming up with a fresh-feeling movie. But that isn't enough.
Chuldenko doesn't aspire to hard realism, but a lifestyle comedy with hard-to-buy fundamentals and a central couple you can't invest in is a dubious proposition nonetheless.
The script unfortunately suffers from its own case of arrested development, barely getting out of the gate before stalling, and never building enough laughs or narrative impetus to justify feature length.
A bittersweet, fitfully engaging film which benefits from appealing leads and an original focus, Nesting ultimately doesn't elicit a deep enough audience identification to rise above the level of bohemian curio.
