People Places Things

2015 romantic comedy

Rating: 12/20

Plot: A divorced graphic novelist tries to balance his professional life, his two daughters, and a teaching job while getting over the fact that his baby mama is crazy.

I enjoy Jemaine Clement, but here, he's like a bad sketch artist's rendition of Hugh Grant. The character doesn't work for me, and I don't really like how the ex-girlfriend's character is painted at all. Things (and people and probably places) all fall into place exactly like you'd expect them to. This didn't really work as a comedy, and the romance part never had any real meaning.
