I'd rather just book another dinner with Andre then spend another day with Marie and Bruce.

Audience Reviews for Marie and Bruce

(** 1/2): [img][/img] An interesting idea, but I found the characters to be just too unlikeable. A near-miss.


This two person dramedy about the crumbling of a marriage is a surreal mini masterpiece with Julianne Moore and Matthew Broderick doing some of their best work in years. Moore is vemomous and Broderick has never been so awkwardly creepy. I can't imagine anyone else I know enjoying ths flick, but I was very satisfied.
