0 stars. I'm kinda surprised this movie has such good reviews. I feel nothing for it at all. The script is filled with banal cliches about "writers" and "good writing," and all the women are either one-dimensional damsels in distress or one-dimensional heinous bitches. Pacing of the second act is too abrupt. Patti breaks up with Brian cuz she needs space, then they get back together without so much as a fade-out.
This was good. I usually find Edward Burns's movies pretty boring, but somehow end up watching them anyhow because they have a good cast. This one was a big improvement, soundtrack is excellent, and a story and characters I could actually relate to for once.
I'm not crazy about Edward Burns as an actor, but I admire his determination to direct honest friendships and romances. Selma Blair and Patrick Wilson are likable enough, but not particularly interesting. The romance between Burns and Debra Messing however, lacks spark; he makes many attempts to rekindle their relationship, but we're never shown why they're right for each other.
