  1. This is the worst movie I've watched since Dead Cop, which starred Joe Piscopo. The acting was fine so I can't blame any of the actors, they just didn't have anything to work with. The story was non-existent. I agree with the reviewer above. It's a bad knock-off of High Fidelity, except there's no chemistry between the characters (bad casting) and there's no story behind it. Whoever wrote this is probably very self-involved. BTW, the spoiler alert couldn't apply to this movie because absolutely nothing happens. I couldn't ruin this for you if I tried.

    Don't waste your time, seriously.

  2. I really wanted to like this film. I like many of the actors, but probably 5 minutes into the film I was bored to death. I was checking the clock every minute, honestly. I see no point in it, nothing to keep the viewers interested, involved. I just didn't care about any of the characters and the main character came off as an idiot, someone I could not only not imagine being a writer or a teacher, but a guy so many women would be into. I only watched it until the end, because I know these actors are good, but no actor could have made a difference, when the main concept of the film is just useless, non existent. I felt the whole thing was just pointless. Major disappointment.

  3. This film is about a writer who visits his ex-girlfriends to make amends before his wedding.

    In "Some Girl(s)" we see the man visiting five ex-girlfriends, who all have different reactions to his visit. The reactions are quite real, especially the first one who claims that she is fine after fifteen years, but in fact not. The emotional roller coaster is quite striking and memorable, so it is a good start to a film. The second one I didn't quite like, then there is an older woman who is manipulative and smart. The fourth one is about a young girl whose subplot is a little disturbing. The main story is probably the end one with Kristen Bell, as there is a shocking revelation twist ending which attempts to make the film more memorable, but does not have the intended effect.

    "Some Girl(s)" is an alright drama, but it is definitely not a comedy.

  4. I'm wondering if the main character is making the rounds to his various ex-girlfriends to gather material for his next novel. The trips down memory lane are vague and general, without specifics. Adam Brody's character doesn't remember details. Was he emotionally connected to any of them, or is this lazy writing? The actors are great. Adam Btody has turned into a hunk since The O.C. He's awfully cute.

    At first our writer seems to have matured into a sensitive person. He wants to be faithful to his fiancée. Later, he refers to her as just some girl who's going to nursing school. Diminishing a current girlfriend is not impressive. This characterization is confusing and inconsistent, These actors do a great job with what little that have. Dialog needs to be more specific and more colorful.

    As another reviewer suggested, this seems to have evolved from a play. No action. Most of the "in-action" takes place in the hotel room.
