After watching this you do in fact become numb, which I'm not sure is the intended point or an after effect from watching Matthew Perry try to stumble through a decent performance.

Matthew Perry, Lynn Collins, Kevin Pollak, Mary Steenburgen, William B. Davis DIRECTED BY: Harris Boldberg Screenwriter Hudson Milbank suffers from acute depersonalization disorder: he is so alienated from his own life that he makes the chronically depressed look perky. Hudson lives alone, watches The Golf Channel all day, can't hang on to a relationship, shoplifts in order to get his adrenalin up off the floor, fears that thinking about his dad's death will bring it to pass, loathes his mother, and in general, is as nutty as a peanut farm. Obsessed with the underlying sadness that infuses his wretched existence, Hudson is a man in hell, but he thinks that his long catalog of dismally unsatisfying and mutually self-destructive relationships is over when Sarah stumbles into his life. He knows she can save him. She knows he has to save himself. Together they just may save each other. Here's another one of those odd little films that I love. But it is one of those films that are not going to be for everyone. But these are the films I most enjoy. Why? Because there not your normal Hollywood movie. It's about real life. Matthew Perry is flawless in this movie. He really becomes this character and makes him so believable, which is important considering it is autobiographical of the director/writer. The way this movie is made there are times when the movie feels slow, but in true sight it is just trying to make you one with the character. See and feel things the way he does. Liked Lynn Collins in this a lot. Thought her character was really sweet and quirky. Just what the film needed to bring more relief to the very serious illness this movie's main character is surrounded by.Mary Steenburgen was great in this film as well, and really had me laughing with the restaurant scene. The movie is sad and at the same time inspiring. He never gives up hope on finding a way out of his own personal hell. I find this movie could be relatable for a lot of people. I hope more will see it. Matthew Perry really shows he can be a serious actor after doing the friends series. Also see him in "Birds Of America" if you haven't. He was really great in it as well.

Does depersonalization disorder really exist? Hudson (Matthew Perry) is so depressed that psychoanalysis, drugs or even a girlfriend doesn't help. I have no idea if there is any realism to this disorder, but it is quite original as a movie.
