Movie Info

Based on his play by the same name, Neil LaBute's script follows a successful writer (Adam Brody) who, on the eve of his wedding, travels across the country to meet up with ex-lovers in an attempt to make amends for past relationship transgressions. Crisscrossing from Seattle to Boston, he reunites with high school sweetheart SAM (Jennifer Morrison), sexually free-spirited TYLER (Mia Maestro), married college professor LINDSAY (Emily Watson), his best friend's little sister REGGIE (Zoe Kazan), and "the one that got away" BOBBI (Kristen Bell). Daisy von Scherler Mayer (PARTY GIRL) directs this journey of a modern-day Candide stumbling through a landscape familiar to most men-messy breakups. (c) Official Site

Critic Reviews for Some Girl(s)

All Critics (29) | Top Critics (11)

Attains the occasional moment of clarity, but ultimately has neither the dramatic heft nor the anchoring talent to justify an hour and a half in the company of a boring sociopath.

There are a lot of truthful notes in "Some Girl(s)," but there are also false ones that let you know that you are being played with. You'd best beware.

Mayer does little to open up LaBute's original play, and the staginess often feels oppressive. The performances are mixed, too.

The deft and merciless director sides with the girls, and to stack the deck she's hired five tremendous actresses who thrill to tear poor Brody apart

The title's parenthetical plural sums up the problem with Some Girl(s): Five slow-cook dialogues that reveal the nice-guy protagonist as a super-tool is four too many.

The things that once made Neil LaBute's movies seem like tossed grenades - the loutish protagonists, the sadism toward women - now come off as more dated than scandalous.

Audience Reviews for Some Girl(s)

½

While not a bad movie, it is not exactly enthralling and I hated Adam Brody's sleazy character. Some of the female cast were worth watching. Actually all of them except Mia Maestro - I didn't really like her character either, probably the only of these women who "deserved" that guy. Emily Watson was a standout. She really drew me in and made me interested in the story and I love Zoe Kazan generally. Jennifer Morrison and Kristen Bell are good actresses, but a little understated here. I am really having a hard time deciding what I think of this movie. It definitely doesn't quite work with the five little stories linking up, but worse than that is character is just repellent. I guess it's unfair to pan the movie based on that when obviously it achieved what it meant to do. I really don't think you are meant to like him, and I think you are meant to pity his women.

A feeble attempt at a rom-com or romantic drama that fails miserably. Rather than enrich this interesting story with a proper cast and aim for a speck of success, Some Girl(s) is poorly written with long dialogue sequences that get boring as Adam Brody moves from one girlfriend to another.

Adam Brody, Emily Watson, Jennifer Morrison, and Kristen Bell star in the hard hitting drama Some Girl(s). On the eve of his wedding a successful writer visits with several women from his past in order to reconcile past transgressions. One can't help but make a comparison to High Fidelity; which is far more clever and insightful. Still, the film does address some interesting issues concerning relationships and accountability. Additionally, the performances are quite good and feel authentic. Though it's a little derivative, Some Girl(s) is a compelling and provocative film with a dark edge.
