I was interested in seeing this movie as soon as I first heard about it, as Douglas Coupland (perhaps my fave author) wrote this for the screen. The acting is solid, the backdrop is beautiful as Vancouver finally gets to play itself, and the film is quirky and watchable, but I did have several problems with it. Coupland is treading over some familiar ground, almost re-writing himself, but without most of the emotional potency of his novels. Sometimes the dialogue is off-beat and amusing, other times it just seems like forced or rehashed postmodern-isms are drifting along and barely tied together in a cohesive plot. This is Coupland's first real foray into movies (Souvenir of Canada was non-fiction) so I'm hoping future efforts will be more refined.
