Results moves stubbornly at its own deliberate pace, but the well-chosen cast -- and writer-director Andrew Bujalski's insightful observations -- offer rich rewards for patient viewers.

A completely weird, off-kilter, bizarro-land version of a romantic comedy, writer/director Andrew Bujalski finally cracks the Broadcast News code moony filmmakers have been trying to break for three decades.
Bujalski's script is smarter and much weirder (in a good way) than the standard romantic comedy.
A movie like this feels like a dream challenge for an actor. It lives and dies not sheerly by the writing and the direction of the script, but by the cast's organic adherence to both.
Sharply funny slacker comedy.
Writer-director Andrew Bujalski has capitalized on the lo-fi triumph of oddball subculture that was Computer Chess, adding budget and stars without compromising tone or intelligence.
The rom-com isn't such a lost cause, after all. It was just waiting for someone like indie filmmaker Andrew Bujalski to resuscitate it.
Takes the unpromising elements of infomercials, rom-coms, and workout videos and makes something original out of it.
Results is low-key and dialogue heavy, and while mumblecore romcoms may not be for everyone, there is a sweetness ... when it enters into the volatile, liminal headspace of the newly single, marked by an almost crystalline, unbearable awkwardness.
A respectable, funny and softy touching grown up take on the endlessly re-hashed rom-com formula.
A romantic comedy is nothing without its leads, and [Cobie] Smulders and [Guy] Pearce make a wonderful, charming pair.
Results is not without nice touches, and will raise a sm ile more than a few times. Guy Pearce's slightly off-kilter performance as philosophy-driven Trevor is worth a look.
A creative comedy about two physical fitness pros and an out-of-shape client who spurs them on to fresh possibilities.
Endearingly weird mumblecore-ish dramedy with a trio of great performances (Cobie Smulders is especially luminous).
Works as a romantic drama so don't expect lots of comedy here. Guy Pearce is really great in the lead role, his character is desperately flawed with self meditation and can't show real emotions. The film drags alot and Corrington is under used but the film works and is well acted. Another great indie surprise for 2016
A rich man employs a personal trainer whose complex relationship with her boss thwarts his affections.
The plot of this film unfolds slowly, and the characters' motivations are muddy. None has a clear, consistent objective that s/he pursues throughout the film, and while these shifting objectives might add to the film's verisimilitude, there isn't a strong enough narrative hand to guide the audience through the film's shifts. When the plot all begins to resolve, one story ends predictably, and the other resolution is so slap-dash that I couldn't believe the film would really end on that note.
I suspect that all of the performances were directed to be subtext-driven, but if it's trying to be a rom-com, then I think stifling the natural energy of Cobie Smulders and Guy Pearce was a mistake. Their performances were like looking at a light through a dark curtain.
Overall, the result of Results is less than its ambitions.
A delightfully offbeat romantic comedy . . . finally a love story where characters with "difficult" personalities aren't forcibly sold as charming and who don't suddenly change who they are out of convenience for the story.
