The movie's tone never quite evens out, but there are still sweet minor-key moments, and some good lines in all that.
A charming supporting cast fails to invigorate "Goodbye to All That," a relentlessly flat seriocomic take on contemporary relationships marking the directorial debut of "Junebug" scribe Angus MacLachlan.
The film's tone remains playful -- there are even some broad, laugh-out-loud moments involving a sex toy -- but poignant little moments sneak in, hinting at darker, more troubling themes.
Otto Wall, the protagonist of Goodbye to All That, is well-meaning, clumsy and a little dull. The movie embodies his character perfectly.
Despite its flaws, the first feature from "Junebug" writer Angus MacLachlan is a heartfelt, bittersweet and often amusing portrait of early middle-age.
There's a lot of good awkward fun to be had as the viewer simultaneously laughs at Otto's expense and hopefully commiserates a bit with him.
It's frustrating when Goodbye to All That runs up against the guardrail, but I'm glad to report it never derails.
Although its premise feels artificial, there's plenty of genuine poignancy beneath the surface of this bittersweet low-budget comedy.
More amusing than funny, and while it's disjointed, it's sincere.
Goodbye to All That explores divorce in a low-key manner, but it lacks an emotional punch or clear sense of humor to carry it much beyond its repetitive series of sexual trysts.
MacLachlan's screenplay ultimately turns out to be as befuddled and as directionless as its protagonist.
Goodbye To All That is mostly just a series of vignettes, detailing Otto's sexual misadventures. And even those don't amount to much.
A happy husband and dad abruptly discovers that he is surprisingly none of the above and thus has make efforts to redefine himself again. What's going for this: schmarts and plenty. Against: alas, the tone seldoms varies. But you'll see yourself somewhere in here and will smile for that irregardless.
