This is a wonderful film with characters that touch the hearts of anyone who has ever known or been close to someone with a severe depression, anxiety disorder or real neurosis. Although Dedication can be considered a romantic comedy genre film, and may follow a somewhat conventional type of narrative, the actors breathe life into this story that in itself is a love letter to New York. NYC is a character in itself in the film, which is not to be overlooked. I loved this movie and think it is an amazing effort for Mr. Theroux. I am excited to see what his next project will be, considering this was a script he obviously acquired somehow, and didn’t pen himself.
“I think that hate is a thing, a feeling, that can only exist where there is no understanding.” TENNESSEE WILLIAMS, Forward to Sweet Bird of Youth
I actually kind of liked it
I have to say too (like some of the other commentators) that this shouldn’t be titled as a romantic comedy, although that it may be. But maybe it could attract more people to it by saying that it is a Drama, instead of a romantic comedy with Mandy “isn’t she the singer” Moore.
The leading guy was great. Can’t remember any big roles from him before, but he really shines in this one. Mandy Moore wasn’t too bad either.
The only thing stopping me giving this movie a 9 or a 10 is the fact that I couldn’t quite see the relationship with the two main characters growing to the measures I think it was supposed to. I mean if they would have just added and old fashioned scene where they are laughing together and doing different stupid things for about two minutes, it would have been more believable. You know,pillow fights and stuff…
But certainly a positive surprise from a “romantic comedy”.
