I'm doing hospice home care for my dad...I'm on leave of absence from my teaching job of 36 years...married/divorce/confused with new relationships/not knowing what I really want/feeling like I'm stupid for not having an answer...and somehow I am pulled to this video at Family Video in the Detroit Area...I didn't really have a clue about what to expect...and in the first few scenes...I notice familiar building in my hometown of Detroit...then scenes in a nearby suburb ...Royal Oak...and then wow...the main characters are working at the zoo...the same zoo I worked at when I was <more>
17 years old for $1.80/hour...one of my tasks was even cleaning out the Bear Fountain...like the male lead did...even time spent with the penguins...like I did...currently, I'm at a point in my life where I'm confused...and I felt like I needed to have a definite plan...I say felt..because this movie helped me realize it's okay not to have it all together now....I might be rambling on...but I believe you will not be disappointed after viewing this movie...
I'll see this film again and again... (by ralphnice)
I see film after film after film, partly because I have no life at the moment ...ha and rarely do I a come across a Jewel like this. I cannot believe that most of us don't struggle with not knowing what you want or who you are and what you're supposed to do. The moments of fate in this film seem very hard to believe but possible I suppose. I'd like to find that one person to make me feel like I belong too. This film makes me want to wish I had a reset button so that I could see it over and over again for the first time. Chris Messina was effortless and the chemistry between <more>
him and Jenna Fischer was magical. I'll see this film again and again...
All the elements of great filmmaking are here in this heartfelt, charming Romantic Drama. The story's strength is rooted in human emotions that finds a wide audience. The screenplay is polished without being totally predictable. The acting is wonderful and I cared about the leads throughout. Many movies miss the mark as they strive for so much they leave their characters behind. This film never forgets what is most important to the audience. It is shot exceptionally well and the color grading is robust and highly cinematic. I come away from watching this well-executed film completely <more>
satisfied and aspire to one day shoot something half as good. For indie filmmakers and the general public alike, this is how it's done. The film is a simple gem worth watching several times.
Useful to those who feel lost in life (by shannonnikic)
I really enjoyed this movie. Sorta low key, more of an indie vibe. If you're in any kind of transient state in your life, relationship-wise, job-wise, whatever... if you're just one of us who feels derailed... lost... pressured.... check out this movie. It's not gonna change your life but it's really enjoyable and helps with perspective. Hat's off to Jenna, great project choice and excellent execution. Well cast. Astonishingly, this movie deals with depressing issues, most likely to be viewed by depressed people, and it pulled off something that they rarely ever do, <more>
especially in the world of indie film, it doesn't make you feel depressed, not once it's concluded at least.
i am really surprised watching its rating in IMDb. Because i think this one is truly an original one. The movie really talks for those people i should say people like me who really have doubts on the traditional meaning of 'success'. The music and the environment created here is perfect. Most of the movies are made for pure entertainment or time pass, only few tries to deliver a massage. I think this one has done that. Plus i think the tag comedy for this one is itself a 'great comedy'. From now on i surly am going to watch-out for more works of this director.All those who <more>
are digging there way out in life can really find some true inspiration from this one.
Lee Kirk -- Your movie made me cry ...Realizing the significance of the powerful and positive impact that taking the time to "stop and smell the roses" sorry can deliver to ones very psyche seems to be unknown, forever lost or perhaps, just ignored by many of us. How did this happen? What factors perpetuate this selfish, though possibly mutually beneficial simple act of awareness? Beats me. Maybe such "numbness" is simply a symptom of that insidious disease commonly known as The Dumbing Down Of America. Don't we all want to understand and to be understood? I do. So,I <more>
try.Of course, these questions weren't answered in The Giant Mechanical Man, but I've never seen a movie come closer to clearly illustrating those truths. This beautifully written, acted and photographed film is a gem!See it. See it without wearing your critic's eyeglasses...shields down! If you do, you'll be rewardedTHANK YOU!
The sweetest Rom-Com I've seen all year...! (by atiyaahsan)
What is wrong with IMDb people? How can this movie have such a low rating? Out of all the Rom-Coms I've seen this year, this is by far the sweetest and perhaps the only one with genuine, believable characters. I mean, who among us hasn't felt at some point in life like they're lost, like they haven't got it all figured out, like they are still struggling. They feel confused at not having the same goals that give other people a sense of achievement and not being able to conform to society's definition of success. The story is pretty straight-forward and centers around real <more>
and ordinary people. Jenna Fischer is sweet and personable as the female lead, Topher grace is hilarious as the obnoxious author who won't stop bragging about his book, and I actually have a younger sister akin to Malin Akerman's character of the over-bearing know-it-all sibling. She thinks just cuz' she got married first, she has the right to dish advice on every conceivable topic.... smiley face As for Chris Messina, well, it's the quiet moments where his character broods and mulls that speak volumes, and the soundtrack suits the mood of the film just right. I loved the lead pair and I loved this movie. Go watch it if you wish to enjoy an hour and a half of some winsome and delightful drama!
Very sweet & true to life love story that deserves to be watched. A date movie that both men & women will like. A- (by cosmo_tiger)
"It only takes just one person to make you feel special and valid and like you belong in the world." Janice Fischer is having a hard time finding and keeping a job not to mention trying to figure out what to do with her life. Tim Messina is doing what he wants to do with his life but feels unappreciated and is not making money at it. Both giving up they take jobs working at the local zoo. They strike up a quick friendship and want to develop more, but there are obstacles standing in their way. This is the definition of a sweet movie. I have never been a big fan of the typical <more>
love story movies mainly because they are so unbelievable. The "good guys" are overly good and the "bad guys" are way to horrible. While this did have a little of that this one is way more realistic and I would call this a real-life love story. This is a very sweet movie and the type of date movie that both men and women will enjoy. Overall, one of the better independent love stories I have seen. I give it an A-.
The film is very good at pointing out the shallowness that is often found in everyday life due to pressure to conform to social pressures and to appear positive even in the worst of times, while at the same time pointing out that one's closest relationships can serve as protection from what can feel like the crushing weight of those pressures. It shows the viewer two ways of living and thinking about life, a mainstream one and an "alternative" one. The film has excellent timing, editing, and performances. The cast similarly brings together increasingly well known and lesser know <more>
but very talented actresses and actors. A must see indie film!
