Seeing Other People - FILM
A stylish little anti-romantic comedy written and directed by Wallace Wolordarsky. The man who made the fun low key hit man black comedy COLD BLOODED and was a show runner on The Simpsons back in its glory days.
Starring THAT GUY YOU KNOW BUT DON'T REALLY KNOW (You know - Jay Morh) and THAT GIRL FROM TV (Julianne Nicholson), it's the story of a justabouttobe married couple that decide to try sleeping with other people before they settle down. It won't be a problem because it's meaningless naked play!
Obviously, it leads to all manners of dryly funny complex emotional conundrums. The running time coasts on the actor's charisma and a fun supporting cast (I LOVE YOU ANDY RICHTER!). The script poses a lot of questions about fidelity and commitment, but doesn't even try to deliver any answers. It's complicated. Leave it at that and enjoy the episodic chuckle worthy ride.
I don't know if I'm willing to watch Wolordarsky's opus SORORITY BOYS yet. Do I hate myself that much yet?
