Go Get Yourself Loved
Captures a generational moment - young people on the cusp of truly growing up, tiring of their reflexive cynicism, each in their own ways struggling to connect and define what it means to love and be loved. Six New Yorkers juggle love, friendship, and the keenly challenging specter of adulthood. Sam Wexler is a struggling writer who's having a particularly bad day. When a young boy gets separated from his family on the subway, Sam makes the questionable decision to bring the child back to his apartment and thus begins a rewarding, yet complicated, friendship. Sam's life revolves around his friends-Annie, whose self-image keeps her from commitment; Charlie and Mary Catherine, a couple whose possible move to Los Angeles tests their relationship; and Mississippi, a cabaret singer who catches Sam's eye.
I'm a sucker for this movie, I really am. I especially enjoy the show stealing scenes with Pablo Schreiber & Zoe Kazan. They're naturals. My only slight criticism is the persistent use of Jaymay throughout the film, overkill.
Really enjoyable small film. Only heard about it via Netflix suggestions, but really liked it. Mainly for the parts with Kate Mara in them, if you know what I mean... Eh? Eh?
Part of the No Rewatch November 2012 Project.
A simple enough movie with a series of plots that more or less tie together. None of the plots are particularly compelling on their own, but added together you end up with an enjoyable little movie.
Some of the stories are built on a few too many gimmicks, or maybe I should call them "character quirks". They're mostly just fine but don't do what the filmmakers wanted them to when it comes to making the characters likable.
The acting was fine and I tend to give a little leeway to any movie about a writer so that's going in it's favor. The meaningful moments felt mostly forced which all culminated in a…
In 2012 I came to the realization that I didn't dislike Josh Radnor as much as I previously assumed I did. In fact, it was quite the opposite. I adored his sophomore writing & directing effort, Liberal Arts, so much that I completed a 180 degree turn on my thoughts toward him. I initially wrote him off as one-dimensional, wooden, and lifeless actor based solely on seeing him in a few episodes of How I Met Your Mother, a show which I never found much to like from. After seeing all of the talent on display in Liberal Arts, I quickly saw that I judged him far too fast and never gave him a fair shot.
It's probably better that my…
O Ted Mosby, η Zoe Barnes, ο Buster Bluth, ο Dimitri απ το Weeds (ή οποινδήποτε έπαιξε στο Wire) κι η Ruby Sparks σε τέλειως διαφορετικούς και άκρως χορταστικούς ρόλους. Ωραίοι χαρακτήρες, ενδιαφέρουσα μουσική και πλοκή και φυσική η Νέα Υόρκη. Josh, τα κατάφερες, μπορώ επίσημα να πω ότι δε σε βλέπω πια σαν αυτό το μίασμα της τηλεόρασης, ονόματι Ted Mosby, και μου αρέσουν αυτά που κάνεις.

Washington Square, are you still there?
Do you still have drugs, jugglers and bucks to spare?
Charlie: Did you play sports when you were a kid? Remember ‘walk it off?’ No matter what happened, right? Your eyeball could be like, hanging out of its socket, coach would run over, scoop you up, ‘Hey, you’re alright kid, just walk it off!’ And I’m sure a few of those times I was legitimately hurt. But, just having this concept, ‘walk it off,’ as a way to, I don’t know, heal myself, it worked. I just walked that shit off. I’ve been feeling lately I’m maybe more resilient than I had thought. But who knows? Maybe I’ll feel differently in five years"
Much preferred the second half of the film to the first half. A visually beautiful film with a stellar cast, but a pretty lackluster script characterised by implausible storylines and self-indulgent characters. There were bits of dialogue here and there that really impressed me and hinted at Josh Radnor's potential as a writer, but I truly believe that if it weren't for the actors involved, I wouldn't have enjoyed this film as much as I did. Pleasant but ultimately not life-changing.
It's funny and lovely and just a good movie about life..
Go get yourself loved. That's what I've got.
Buenas historias, buen ambiente y me encanta el soundtrack.
Ted decide ponerse detrás de las cámaras y consigue un resultado bastante interesante. Una historia simple pero simpática, con los cánones del genero de comedia romántica, consigue sacar un producto simpático a la vez que tierno. No es un Woody Allen, ni creo que lo sea, pero compararlos a los dos es inútil, uno acaba de empezar en la dirección y otro ya esta consagrado. Simplemente disfrutad de la película.
nice, but a bit cheesy... go get yourself loved....
Pretty standard indie film. Nice while you watch it but instantly forgettable.
No es que Josh Radnor me parezca un pedante y todo lo que haga me de rabia... Pero es que siempre lo veo haciendo el mismo papel y en estas pelis pretendidamente indies. No me ha gustado nada.
Josh Radnor seems to understand the quirks and eccentric qualities of white people the way Tyler Perry understands deeper nature of black people. Both filmmakers have their flaws - one makes a great deal of the story too unbelievable while the other makes a great deal of the story overwrought and overly-sentimental - but both men succeed on some difficult levels of filmmaking.
Radnor's directorial debut, confusingly titled Happythankyoumoreplease, is ostensibly another piece of "hipster cinema" that exists in the same light as Zach Braff's Garden State or Marc Webb's (500 Days) of Summer. Radnor undoubtedly has a few things similar to the aforementioned films (they feature characters with lives too quirky and arty to be believable and seem to…
