Attains the occasional moment of clarity, but ultimately has neither the dramatic heft nor the anchoring talent to justify an hour and a half in the company of a boring sociopath.

There are a lot of truthful notes in "Some Girl(s)," but there are also false ones that let you know that you are being played with. You'd best beware.

Mayer does little to open up LaBute's original play, and the staginess often feels oppressive. The performances are mixed, too.

The title's parenthetical plural sums up the problem with Some Girl(s): Five slow-cook dialogues that reveal the nice-guy protagonist as a super-tool is four too many.

The things that once made Neil LaBute's movies seem like tossed grenades - the loutish protagonists, the sadism toward women - now come off as more dated than scandalous.

Penned by the incomparable Neil LaBute, Some Girl(s) is theatrical and contrived; to some, it might achieve some rather off-putting extremes of hyper-reality.

The weight of dull clichés only makes the stilted dialogue harder to stomach.

Adam Brody keeps the unnamed protagonist distant, strangely blank, as if part of his problem is his lack of any real personality of his own, prompting him to parasitise the charismatic women he meets and try to substitute scandalous behaviour for depth.

Neil LaBute adapts his bracingly astute play into a series of scenes that make us question how men and women ever come together to make a relationship work.

The film can't shake its repetitive structure and stagebound roots.

What once were searing treatises on men, women, relationships and the various toxicities that exist between selfish, shitty, desperate characters, appear -- much like the film's protagonist -- just a little sad and pathetic.

Neil LaBute may be the bravest writer currently working in motion pictures because he writes male characters who are undeniably loathsome.

Some Girl(s) is engaging because of the fierce, uncompromising nature of the dialogue, as well as the first-rate performances.

Loaded with dark thoughts and agitation, making an excellent transition to the big screen courtesy of director Daisy von Scherler Mayer, who confidently retains LaBute's acid splash.

Like most of Neil LaBute's work in the field of "emotional terrorism," the film protests that bad behavior isn't only good, but also essential to art.

Draws much of its modest power from the notion that other people's romantic relationships are even more baffling than our own.

A classy and beautifully performed screen adaptation of Neil LaBute's stage play, Some Girl(s) is an astute and provocative drama about the perils of relationships and messy breakups in particular.

Audience Reviews for Some Girl(s)

It's not you. It's him...

Mediocre Movie! This is a movie that is hard to review. First of all the idea and acting are good and it is obvious that this was written as a stage play. In order to really feel for the characters you have to not really even like them but you must respect them. Bad guys are interesting, you don't like them but you respect the character and his role. Adam Brody's character in this is so unlikeable you almost hate him and really have no respect for what he is doing. The more women he talks to the more you begin to despise the guy and by the end I really ended up hating everything about the guy. The test for a good movie is one that makes you feel certain emotions. By that standard this was a good movie, but this isn't really one I can recommend because Brody's character really could go down as one of the worst people in the history of cinema. I guess to see what I mean is a reason to watch. Overall, good movie but I can't recommend it.

Based on his play by the same name, Neil LaBute's script follows a successful writer who, on the eve of his wedding, travels across the country to meet up with ex-lovers in an attempt to make amends for past relationship transgressions. Crisscrossing from Seattle to Boston, he reunites with high school sweetheart Sam, sexually free-spirited Tyler, married college professor Lindsay, his best friend's little sister Reggie, and "the one that got away" Bobbi. A modern-day Candide stumbling through a landscape familiar to most men-messy breakups.

Adam Brody, Emily Watson, Jennifer Morrison, and Kristen Bell star in the hard hitting drama Some Girl(s). On the eve of his wedding a successful writer visits with several women from his past in order to reconcile past transgressions. One can't help but make a comparison to High Fidelity; which is far more clever and insightful. Still, the film does address some interesting issues concerning relationships and accountability. Additionally, the performances are quite good and feel authentic. Though it's a little derivative, Some Girl(s) is a compelling and provocative film with a dark edge.
