Some Girl(s) Reviews
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.
(2013) Some Girl(s)
Based on the stage play written by Neil LaBute starring Adam Brody as a writer of a magazine who's attempting to make amends with some of the previous relationships he used to have before he settles down. And he's willing to spend money to go to the cities they're residing in as well. There's a total of 5 to 7 so-called girl(s), including Kristen Bell, Zoe Kazan, Mía Maestro, Jennifer Morrison, and Emily Watson. One thing all of these relationships have in common is that he saw it one way while they all see something else.
I can't relate to this as being entertainment, perhaps it'll be better as a documentary which was later pointed out to viewers later that the Adam Brody character also had an ulterior motive. some of the characters sometimes seemed comical, and rather pointless to begin with.
