Sincerely, The Rotten Tomatoes Team
this movie is based on great ideas which really don't materialize. Excruciatingly slow pace. Finished it feeling I'd wasted and hour and a half of my life.
A very fine, well done and pleasant portrayal about loneliness, sickly relationships with pets, objects, or people; and the seek of purposefulness on life. Every grown up person must watch movies like these, especially when life gets incomprehensible.
This one is a nice little slice of life about a woman who loses a beloved pet and tries to fill that hole in her heart by adopting numerous changes to her lifestyle, with a new man, a new pet, even a new diet all adding unforeseen complications to things.
It's both funny and bittersweet, and well worth a rental at the very least.
Definitely not a comedy. it actually makes you cry rather than laugh. It shows what happens to people who become excessively obsessed with animal welfare. Molly does a really good job here.
I really enjoyed this movie, I thought it was very touching but at the same time offbeat and weird which is not a bad thing it's a very good thing, also Molly Shannon knocked it out of the park with her performance.
There is so much more to this little film than meets the eye. Molly Shannon gives a brilliant performance in the leading role. Actually, all of the actors are sublime. An uncomfortably realistic film with comedic moments -- none of which are out of the realm of the unbelievable. Exceptional.
Too depressing to enjoy
Well acted with sensitive direction and story but stiff and very bland overall.
I really liked the first half (the scenes concerning Pencil's death are incredibly moving), but I thought it went off in some kinda bizarre, preachy directions that didn't really work (and that's coming from an animal lover) and that White covered much better a few years later with Enlightened. In fact much of this movie's themes on activism seem kind of redundant to that show, including the almost identical ending. I still liked it, but plot-wise it's a bit hard to swallow.
