Dialogue Often Seems Staged
30 November 2015 | by larrys3See all my reviews

Maybe I'm from the wrong demographic, but this film never entirely clicked for me. It certainly has its moments, but overall the main problem was in the script (written by 4 screenwriters), which often came across to me as staged and awkward.

Chris Evans stars here as Nick, a trumpeter readying for an important audition with a jazz band in New York City. He also makes his motion picture directorial debut here and I thought did a credible job. Alice Eve, the charismatic and underrated actress, co-stars as Brooke, an art consultant, who has just had her purse stolen and subsequently has missed the last train out to her home in Boston.

Nick and Brooke meet by circumstance in Grand Central Station, and together they begin an odyssey through the streets of Manhattan, each with relationship problems weighing heavily on them. Brooke's marriage may be "on the rocks" and Nick is scheduled to be at a wedding reception that night where a lost love (Emma Fitzpatrick), from years before is expected to be in attendance, as he still fantasizes and pines for her.

The chemistry between Nick and Brooke really worked well, I thought, so the eventual question will be whether they will get together romantically or be like two "ships passing in the night".

Overall, there are things to like here, including the wonderful cinematography of Manhattan at night, plus two charismatic actors commanding the screen. However, I was never "sold' on this movie due to the often non-believable and clichéd dialogue.
