Pretentious Wes Anderson rip-off

This is truly awful. It's like the producer's kid saw The Royal Tenenbaums and came home from Brown or Yale and was allowed to make his first movie with a studio budget.

Like so many other movies (sorry, "films") now, it's like they said "if we shoot it in NYC nobody will notice how terrible this is!"

At least Jason Bateman is in it, but his agent should be horse-whipped for letting him do this.

ironically even more shallow than its protagonist

The premise is interesting - describing a crisis in a life of a spoiled, shallow, born-rich, almost-middle-aged guy, having a comedic view of it.

Also, it looks very nice, too nice, really, essentially unreal, which is nice in comparison to this guy's life, which is also such.

But that's basically all there is to it. It's not fun, though that is by design. It has but a few good jokes. There are no really fundamental observations on human nature. Well, except that someone who's been spoiled by their 40s needs to have a crisis to _start_ living in the real world - and that their life-long psychiatrist is a part of the problem, not the solution.

The cast is actually mostly OK, except that Olivia Wilde being a model is a slight miss - though she's great in other terms. Essentially, they could have just made her an actress or a painter, or something.

But the material is just even more shallow than our main character and, by the end, you're basically left with "what was all this for?".

intentional lack of appeal

Conrad Valmont (Jason Bateman) is 40, privileged, emotionally stunted, and living off the family's wealth in the family's high class NYC hotel. He is supposed to be writing a book but lives without achievements. His parents separate and cut him off from the family fortune. With no means, he takes the subway to his friend Dylan (Billy Crudup) for a place to crash. Along the way, he meets and falls for struggling model Beatrice (Olivia Wilde). Despite Dylan claiming Beatrice, Conrad pursues her in a week-long affair.

With the pretentious narration and the particular characters, this is a story of relatively unappealing people. Conrad has nothing to offer and Dylan is little better. Even Beatrice is superficially drawn. There is no depths to these characters. Conrad's eventual growth is tenuous at best. The biggest problem is that the characters provide no humor in this suppose comedy. It's intentionally flat with no heart.
