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.

If you've seen any of the playwright's previous forays into XY-ugliness, you can probably skip this one and still sleep soundly at night.

It doesn't take pattern-recognition software to catch some shared, troubling concerns here. But the charitable viewer will remember that ugly themes aren't necessarily a thesis.

A weaselly protagonist keeps well-made film from connecting emotionally.

Adam Brody strikes a deft balance of purposeful sincerity and sociopathic self-justification in the lead role.

It's minor LaBute, but nonetheless short and bittersweet.
