A bleak, annoyingly quirky Gen-X recasting of the When Harry Met Sally notion that true love is based on friendship.

All coy grins and daffy mugging, Mr. Stiller plays the role as if aspiring to become the Elliott Gould of his generation. Compared with jumping off the Brooklyn Bridge, that's a reasonable goal.

If Lucy Fell is funnier more often than not, and when it's not being funny it's at least being strange. I'll take strange over what most major-distributor comedies are when they're not being funny.

There is an affectation that I find particularly annoying, and that is when people choose to perform at a level below their natural intelligence.

It's airy, fluffy and ultimately uninteresting.

If Lucy Fell should be a chore, and yet I kept catching myself having a good time.

Sadly, the story is nowhere as original as the details and performances.

A disappointingly superficial romantic comedy. There's no chemistry between any of the characters. The acting is mediocre, with Schaeffer and Parker exhibiting no screen presence.
