See Girl Run Reviews
(2013) See Girl Run
DRAMA/ ROMANCE/ COMEDY
Written and directed by Nate Meyer- a pointless movie that doesn't go nowhere, starring Robin Tunney as Emmie who works at a dog facility shelter centre her husband owns that looks after and grooms other peoples dogs called "See Spot Run"- get it, which is similar to the movie's title. And by the time Emmie comes home, her husband apparently doesn't appear to be drawn into her as he once was. Motivating her to consider on going back to revisit her childhood neighborhood again on some small town near Seattle, Washington from NYC. Viewers are then subjected to many pointless back and forth scenes of Jason(Adam Scott) and Emmie's current lives. As we see Emmie's old high school crush Jason, who works in a mediocre6 job, and at the same time unhappy with his current girlfriend, we're also seeing Emmie's unhappy situation as well as she looks at some of the things her old boyfriend used to give her "before" she was even married. Jason seems to get a percentage of his money from drawing only 'toads", as he sells them to bars and establishments around the small town area. You know for a guy who has that much talent, viewers are left wondering how come 'toads' are the only thing he draws? And why is it he doesn't try to sell them on-line for instance, for it could be that the film is supposed to be old fashion. And it was at this point, the Jason character begins to act so pitiful that he's beginning to look like a total disgrace to all men.

But, we could have done without the ring shot at the end. I am a sentimental woman, but that bit just annoyed me. Writers and directors and artists of all kinds, often have a really hard time trusting the rest of us. Go figure.
