I'm a bit hot and cold when it comes to Brody but he was good as the not-too-bright ventriloquist (not necessarily a backhanded compliment). As usual, the talented Farmiga shines and I liked the fact that the beautiful Jovovich challenges herself in her role as a rebellious misfit. The real treat, though, is the direction of the situational comedy which is simultaneously hilarious and subdued. My kind of quirky.

Good Milla, but otherwise very forgettable, TV-quality romance.

Never a big fan of Adrien Brody. Now I know why.

It was a little too close for comfort because the family seemed modeled after my own, but that made the funny parts better and canceled out some of the super cheesy parts. It was dangerously close to being a tragicomedy though.

Flows horribly, has absolutely no setup, and leaves too many loose ends. But I still found myself rooting for all the characters and interesting in the romantic angle of the plot.

Quirky setup degenerates into overly simplistic situation comedy, and the characters end up taking so familiar paths, that you have to wonder why anyone bothered coming up with the eccentric setting to begin with. The biggest miss is the Brody ventriloquist act that goes nowhere instead of interesting places, twisted and uncomfortable.

So, they just wrote quirks on slips of paper and drew them out of a hat, and built a movie around it? I liked all the actors, but the movie stunk of indie stereotype and laziness.

Bad. A spud. The schadefreuden reminder from my girlfriend when she fears I've selected a film for us to watch that we are going to regret. It says more about me than this little film, though.

A very entertaining, darkly funny, and underrated movie. Brody plays the introvert very well and it might be my favorite Jovovich performance acting wise.

(...)Dummy ist viel selbstbewusster und energischer als Steven (und wird von Adrien Brody selbst als Bauchredner gesprochen!). Im Grunde verkörpert Dummy das, was Steven nie werden konnte: Ein unverblümt auftretender unabhängiger Erwachsener.(...)
