I don't know why people say this is good. It was painfully slow and Michelle Williams' character is possibly one of the most annoying movie characters ever. Way too long, way too much unnecessary nudity and absolutely no takeaway message. Do yourself a favor and don't waste two hours of your life on this!

This is not a bad movie, but certainly is not a good one. On a 1 to 10 scale, a solid 5. Only fell alseep twice, then it got slow! Characters are completely devoid of any reason to relate to them.

This film was a delight and pleasure to watch. Michelle Williams brings an effervescent and quirky woman character to a new height. She gives a fantastic performance. The film moves along a little slow; but for the storyline it's fine. It points out what many of us have to deal with in our own relationships. It is easy to take one for granted and there is a price to pay for that reality. The acting is good from all the cast members. The director uses 360 degree shots to highlight scene moods. This is an adult film for sure; but it has a message for anyone at the age to date someone seriously. Go and see this one for an enjoyable night at the movies.

Michelle Williams and Seth Rogen star as a couple ("Margot", "Lou") so devoted to each other that their endearments are flavored with untoward, torturous sentiments. She is aimless, rootless, devoid of ambition; he cooks and writes about chicken for a living. Enter Luke Kirby ("Daniel") as the distraction that temporarily stimulates the seemingly drugged, comatose Margot. Many might recognize these doomed couples but with alacrity and insight flee their negative energy.
ONE & 1/2 STARS!

I'm a fan of Rogen and Williams so I liked this more than people who aren't fans of these actors might. It's a very pretty film, the scenery and colours are beautiful but it moves along very slowly. It's a very true-to-life story, something that could happen to anyone, and I think the write/director did a great job of portraying such circumstances. All actors were perfect for their parts and played believable characters. The quirks of the married couple are extremely odd, sometimes painfully so, but if you can get past that and you enjoy a simple story of love then you will most likely enjoy this film.
