A film that loses itself in the terrible clichés it puts on display. While I felt Baumbach tried to say something profound with this film, the ridiculous characters and their stupendous behavior make it very difficult to take any of it serious. The film works best as a comedy, sadly it isn't trying very hard to be funny.

A pretty tired divorce narrative that isn't helped by actor who are trying very hard to act and a director who supposedly fell asleep halfway through. The simplistic people vs the system finger waving didn't really help the film forward either. There are a few pleasant scenes, but hardly enough to support a 132-minute film.
