Exactly the movie that one expects it to be -- a frustrating quality for some, but smooth medicine for those who trust and like writer-actors' puppy dog tales that unfold loosely in the vein of Ed Burns.

Take (500) Days of Summer and Garden State, strip away their charms and you end up with Language of a Broken Heart, a handsomely shot but tired pile-up of indie rom-com clichés.

Language of a Broken Heart might have made a passable Hallmark or Lifetime TV movie, cushioned by the TV-movie context. But as a theatrical prospect, it's a fail.

Don't expect to fall head-over-heels for this tale of a nice guy finishing last, but you'll appreciate its quirks, insight and humor.

Lacks complexity, realism, wit and sophistication. Julie White radiates panache, though.

It's an inoffensive, undercooked film without much to say, but there are flashes of potential.

March 7, 2013
Nothing terribly special here, but perfectly played and a spiritual cousin to such early '90s indies as "Naked in New York" and "Ed's Next Move."

Today's romantic comedies may be the most dire product being rolled off American filmmaking assembly lines.

A feigned attempt at a stereotypically quirky indie film that has virtually nothing in the way of formal sophistication or narrative ambition.
