Audience Reviews for A Case of You

    This film could have been so much better. It kind of reminded me of movies like Along Came Polly and the Freddie Prinze Jr. film Down to You. I liked Along Came Polly, much more than this film. This style of the film is off. This feels like a TV sitcom. I felt that the audience track was missing. Also the film needed a better director. I keep thinking if Kevin Smith directed the film, it would be so much better. Everyone in the cast is great, they just need a better director and script.

    Not the best. Pretty c grade. Evan reminds me of a younger, cute Drew Barrymore here. Just made me wish I was watching one of her cute rom coms from the 90's! Most of it is a bit sketchy with some stereotypical unlikable supporting characters and idiotic scenes. The romantic ending is nice, and if the rest of the film had been more like it, I might have been more impressed.

    There is another romantic comedy that was featured at the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival. The film was directed by Kat Coiro and produced by Justin Long (who has the role of the main character Sam), who wrote the script with his brother Christian and Keir O'Donnell, who also stars in the film as Eliot, next to Evan Rachel Wood as Birdie, Sam Rockwell as Gary, Sienna Miller as Sarah, Brendan Fraser as Tony and Vince Vaughn as Alan. The non-original, sanitized story which follows the life of writer who creates a trumped-up online persona in order to impress a young woman, won't be too attractive for most of the viewers if it didn't have actors with lots of chemistry (sadly lots of restrains as well), excellent music choice, and lots of funny situations. It was not just watchable, but definitely enjoyable. Of course, everybody have their own preferences and reasons to enjoy this work of Kat Coiro, and they could list something else. I enjoyed watching young writer Sam having a crush on Birdie, the cute and quirky barista at his local coffee shop, and especially enjoyed all his conventional attempts to woo her crashing and burning. When he failed there, he tries online, creating an Internet profile embellished with all of the details that would make him Birdie's dream guy: ballroom dancing, rock climbing, a seemingly endless, escalating series of wacky and unlikely hobbies. Of course, this harebrained scheme is a surprise success and Birdie falls for his exaggerated alter ego... but Sam must keep up the act or lose his dream girl forever. I think this could be simple a winning comedy for the social media age.

    Woah, didn't expect this to hit me emotionally and well as hysterically. Justin Long has always been a great actor in my book, so I knew I was up for entertainment, but i didn't expect to be this impressed. great!
