1608 - I Love You Phillip Morris
I liked this film, but I was primed to love it. I realize that it's based on a true story, but at the same time I thought it could have been a little funnier, more biting, or something. For an already short film I'd be lying if I didn't say that it dragged just a tad in the middle and takes a little too long to get going off the top. As much as I love Leslie Mann I think that you could have completely cut out the storyline of his old family and career as a cop without missing a single thing (outside of a tinge of irony).
It's on netflix now, so check it out if you're interested in it. In a coincidental turn of events I'm having somewhat of a Glenn Ficarra & John Requa double-bill as Emily and I plan to see their Crazy Stupid Love later in the week (had no idea that they were the ones whom made this). So in terms of a recommendation, take a look at the subject matter and go from there. It's not an amazing film, but it's entertaining enough for it's hour and a half running time.
