You know I initially rated this 3.5 stars with a like as well, but the problem with Hollywood endings and cliches is that 2 days later the movie is almost entirely forgotten. I got the initial surge of happiness associated with the results of the movie, but it was fleeting.
I don't like when they just use some generalization to make it seem as if all white collar workers are miserable. I don't like the fact that they needed to elevate Maggie Gyllenhaal's character to a harvard drop out with a heart of gold. I don't like that just 4 weeks of living a "purposeful life" leads to a committed relationship and general happiness in life.
I think a lot of the visuals elements of this film were really cool and the setup was fascinating, but it just falls into pastiche and generalizations that fail to capitalize to make the film interesting over the course of it.
