Pretty Good

I liked this one. It's an interesting take the on breakdown of a woman in suburbia when overwhelmed by the pressures of near single-handedly raising a family with little more than the financial help of her self obsessed husband.

Its a reasonably well written, well paced, well developed, well scripted, and excellently acted film. Black comedy, satire, drama, I'm not sure which but its amusing throughout and I had a few rip roaring belly laughs too, which is always a bonus.

Jason Ritter is superb and really has this role sown up. He really brings home the bacon for this one and without his performance the film would be average at best. The film really revolves around his character, and he's masterful in portraying a man with most every masculine failing a husband can have. A word of warning! Brace yourself men if you err in deciding to see this with a wife, girlfriend, mistress, sister, mother, daughter or indeed any individual of the female gender. The feminist's bashing stick is oiled, nailed, honed and wielded with some ferocious might for nearly the length of this movie, and protective gear is warranted if you decided not to head my warning.

Its a very engaging film and though it's a bit silly, far-fetched and juvenile in places it's quite entertaining. It has a very able cast and as I said most things are on point.

Unfortunately its not all good; the music and sound accompaniment (whatever they're called) are horrible. They are loud, intrusive and overbearing. Nearly every action sequence or occurrence is paired with loud obtuse percussion effects and clutter... just noise. I have serous misgivings with incongruity of the sound here. I understand the effect of chaos and distress its attempting to achieve, but its been grossly overdone and the result is distracting and invasive.

I highly recommend it if you're organising a feminist march and need to rally the troops round beforehand, or if you're a man who perhaps needs to demonstrate that your own masculine failings aren't really that bad, and you need to prove to your wife how much worse they could be.

I jest of course but it is strong on feminist content so if you find such material difficult to stomach, give it a miss. Its a decent film, and as a low budget effort it delivers very well and is worth watching. Gets the thumb up from me.
