An uneven, at times absorbing portrait of four couples struggling to define their relationships.
It's a banal little indie ensemble comedy.
It's partly the characters and partly the performers who are responsible for generating more feelings in the afterlife than the film's Weehawken Six achieve in here and now.
The story, such as it is, is hackneyed mush of the most contrived and patronizing kind.
One of those exercises in romantic whimsy that misses its mark: It's alternately sappy and uncomfortably harsh.
Reveals [Yellen's] mastery of artifice and theatricality in the service of eliciting genuine emotion and insight into human nature.
Somewhere buried deep within Linda Yellen's The Simian Line lurks a potentially interesting film.
Somewhere buried deep lurks a potentially interesting film.
It is like an anthology that offers only one story that clicks.
We grownups need more of this kind of silly, sweet, knowing romantic movie.
In the end it's simply weak.
See it now or wait for cable? It's a fine Line.
