There's food for thought in 'Naming Number Two,' but staginess in conception and acting, bad pacing, and triteness are together too much to overcome.

Suffering from a formulaic story, ridden with clichés, the film has enough remarkable performances to make up for where it lacks. Not entirely, though.
