Godard's experimental sensory overload is quite frankly boring and has nothing to say; serving no real purpose other than for the film maker to play around with 3D and shower us with painful pretences. It is quite visually sumptuous, which perhaps makes it worth something.
The sweetness and whimsical charm of this warm family comedy ultimately wins over the formulaic plot, silly star casting and daft jokes, but only just.
Bill Hader and Kristen Wiig (Hader is particularly excellent) give brilliant duo performances as twins in this bleak yet touchingly sentimental and sweet seriocomedy that tests the blood is thicker than water clichÃ©, but ultimately proves it to be true.
The brisk editing, intimate photography and Abramovic's own seductive personality elevate the film and make it somewhat watchable for me, despite not understanding what all the fuss is about regarding her famous, bizarre performance art. Still, I found it impenetrable, bizarre and sometimes unintentionally hilarious, as ignorant as that might make me sound to the modern art crowd.
Surprisingly, the casting of Adam Sandler is probably the best thing about PTA's stab at the romantic comedy. It's a very slight film when compared with the rest of his filmography and doesn't seem to have much of a point, but Sandler lends an awkward, endearing charm that adds a layer of poignancy and humour to affairs.
