Re: “Greenberg

I'm flabbergasted by all the rave reviews for this movie. I loved The Squid and the Whale and at least liked Margot at the Wedding. Which is to say I like art house films and Baumbach in particular, but sweet Jesus, this movie was a CHORE to sit through: scene after scene of meandering, pointless dialogue. Lots of moments of wondering, "where the hell is this all going?" Great performances and a few laugh out loud lines, but generally, the movie is a real downer. One couple left 20 minutes into it. And another couple bonded with my boyfriend and me afterwards over how bad it was. The woman said, "I can't believe it was even made!"
