Good Dick (2008)
Critic Consensus: Marianna Palka's quirky indie debut centred on two dysfunctional loners is hit and miss, but has enough originality to see it through.

Critic Reviews for Good Dick
Surely some of the young woman's porn videos would make better viewing.
Alternately compelling and dramatically limp, the film scores points for exploring unfamiliar territory but lacks the emotional depth to make some very strange behavior believable.
A short and sweet anti-romantic comedy, Good Dick puts together a heav ily depressed young woman with a homeless clerk who rents her porn at a Los Angeles video store.
As irritatingly monosyllabic as its characters, this indie 'romance' -- the quote marks aren't an accident -- feels over-workshopped and false at almost every point.
Dysfunction beguiles in Good Dick, a perverse romantic comedy whose coarse title belies its tender heart.
Audience Reviews for Good Dick
Slow to start, but was worth sticking with. Really good low budget movie about two damaged people. The two leads are great. Really very moving at the last scene where you start to understand what actually happened to that poor girl to make her the way she was.
Very odd yet I completely loved it. Indie flick that doesn't seem so indie... Love the storyline, even though it's a bit crude, and am pleased with the results. Jason & Marianna were quite believable in their roles.
I have seen Jason Ritter in a few movies now, one being the education of charlie banks. I thought he was brilliant in it. So I will watch this just to see his performance. Plus it looks like its going to be very different from most films. Plus it looks funny. OK, I watched this movie today. I was really wrong about this being a comedy. It is definitely not a comedy, more of a romantic drama. It was a little confusing at moments trying to understand what exactly was wrong with Marianna's character. But by the end of the movie it all comes together and it's heart breaking. It made me wanna reach through the screen and hug her.. It was just so sad. I never seen that coming and it was just disturbing. Marianna Palka was amazing. This is the first film I have seen her in I believe. She did this part brilliantly. I felt her pain, which I don't think anyone would want to. It's a heart breaking, sad, and great movie. Jason Ritter once again does a great job. People should really see this movie. The title kinda throws it all off, but you will understand after seeing the movie.
