DVD Review: A Case of You
It's not creepy..
Sam (Justin Long) is a writer who has a crush on a Barista he just met named Birdie. (Evan Rachel Wood) He decides he's going to stalk her on facebook to find out what she likes, so he can get into all of these things first before he approaches her again. Because charades like this last forever and no one ever figures them out.
On paper, this looks promising. Wood is one of my favorite actresses, Sam Rockwell, Sienna Miller, Vince Vaughn, Keir O'Donnell and Peter Dinklage are all in it. Well turns out those people I just listed get to show up for five minutes at a time and leave while we're still stuck watching the entire film.
Evan Rachel Wood is too talented for this, and nearly everything about this script lets her down. Birdie borderlines on being a Manic Pixie Dream Girl and it takes Sam a beat too long to realize that he's the problem. 5 minutes of Dinklage being hilarious and Wood singing can't save this.
