The story seems to be trivial: boy meets girl, falls in love, girl doesn’t. And he ends up heartbroken. The movie is about him reflecting back on the relationship with his three (very different!) buddies. And actually the story is trivial. But it is the way the story is told, the actors, the funny scenes, the different ways of filming it that makes the movie a good one. It is a romantic comedy with not-so-well-known but great actors, and an everyday story with everyday side stories that we all know, but still it’s worth watching. Directed by Marc Webb with Joseph Gordon Levitt and Zooey Deschanel. (Tina Grieben)
