Rotten: The Good Guy has a few half-cute moments, some chuckles, and enough pretty faces to cast at least two TV pilots. What it doesn't have is a clue.

Fresh: Drawing on his stint at a Chicago investment firm, DePietro creates characters, dialogue and situations that feel authentic, which makes the film relevant in unexpected ways, though not as deeply as you hope he'll do in the future.

Rotten: A sort of much more polite, estrogenized filmic companion piece to a lost, mid-era Bret Easton Ellis novel, this movie has a different, interesting cant than most films of its ilk, but can't quite turn that positive into a deal-closing recommendation.

Not bad. Not great. Seemed to make an attempt at a nice romantic drama, but doesn't quite go all the way.

I was surprised to see this has a fairly bad rating, I actually quite enjoyed it. I picked it up fairly cheap as it has Alexis Bledel in it. I would never claim she is a great actress, but I liked The Gilmore Girls, and she does have a pleasant girl next door quality which makes her watchable. Then I noticed Andrew McCarthy and Anna Chlumsky where also in it. Even better The story pretty much just follows a girl and her relationship with her boyfriend, and his situation at work. It is one of those all are not as it seems stories. Along the way there are a few laughs with some fun supporting characters and also a male makeover, which makes a change to the usual ugly duckling girl story. I found this pleasant viewing which didn't drag in it's 80 minute run time.
