Scott Hardie: “It ruled.”
This review contains spoilers. Reveal it.
This turned out to be every bit the black comedy promised by the trailer, certainly the bleakest comedy not directed by Todd Solondz that I've seen in a while. For those of a different temperament, this plays as a tragedy about miserable people, so your mileage may vary. For me, the satire of rich New York snobs (liberal and conservative alike) cut pretty sharply, and I appreciated how much Sandra Oh and Anne Heche threw themselves into the work, physically and otherwise. My only complaint is that, after solid first and second acts, the movie doesn't really know how to end, lacking the imagination or the will to devise a proper resolution. Still, I laughed and winced a lot. This is some funny, depraved stuff.This review contains spoilers. Reveal it.
