Fans of Nora Ephron would do well to adjust their expectations... [here] messy individuals often chicken out or betray their own best interests in love.

A romcom that refreshes the parts others don't reach, with Olivia Wilde on stellar form.

The film's quartet of post-slackers are captured as they feel their way around the edges of what they want (and are afraid to ask for) with painful accuracy.

Mr. Swanberg's camera weaves through bodies at rest, at work and at the bar in no particular hurry, and his script captures the idioms of men and women who are equally inclined to waste words and to say very little.

A lo-fi relationship drama that is interesting, if unevenly presented.
