There is not one sympathetic character in this film.

Sammy Prescott (Laura Linney) is snooty and kind of a hypocrite; her brother Terry (Mark Ruffalo) is a con man; Sammy's boss---oops, can't tell you about Sammy's boss. The only character you can maybe get behind is Bob, the poor sap who wants to marry Sammy.

Sometimes a lack of likeable characters makes for an interesting film, but in this case, it kinda made me want to shout at the television. Here are a bunch of people doing really stupid things that get them nowhere.

It's shot in upstate New York, though, and it's quite lovely up there.
