This film has a nice visual style and overall vibe, but unfortunately the protagonist is not a lovable character. It is difficult to see why two seemingly nice guys are interested in her drama. The would-be homewrecker guy is intensely sweet and romantic to her, for reasons I cannot understand.

I liked this movie so much that I bought myself a copy. It shows how you can think you are happy but missing something. It has a totally erotic scene and very good photography. The acting was good, too. You have to look into it deeply to realize its message.

very good

I squirmed in my seat for the first ~15 minutes, feeling embarrassed for all involved at how 'Canadian' the movie felt — not the strongest writing or acting. But then the movie gets a toe-hold and proceeds on a much steadier track. True, it's not a comedy and it's certainly not fast-paced. But this is definitely a thought-provoking look at how the grass can always look greener elsewhere, even if things aren't that bad at home. There are still a few amateurish moments, Daniel can straddle between sweet and creepy, and Margot has some inanely dorky moments... but I enjoyed this overall, and Sarah Silverman and Seth Rogan are terrific. As someone said below, the movie stays with you afterwards. Toronto's never looked so luscious and rich.

Compelling movie. Quite well done, but left me feeling uncomfortable and a bit disturbed. Stays with you for a long time.

I was pleasantly surprised by this movie. Quirky and different. I loved it! Canadian Sarah Polley directs and writes it. Filmed in some of the character neighbourhoods of Toronto.

I liked this movie even better as I thought about it after. Sarah Polley has a deft touch. I believe she did capture some real experiences without the usual heavy hand of Hollywood. To me that would explain some people finding this boring. It isn't a happy story. It isn't a very sad story. But it is a reality that is worth looking at.

I saw the start of the movie and I did not like it this isnot for children to watch

It's a very real and very frustrating movie. Frustrating in that you want to shake Margot but very real as you see how a little bit of something new or inspiring can just aggravate things that may already be bothering you or make you focus on the negative. I don't want to say that the take home message of this movie is be happy with what you have, because it really isn't what it is at all, but the grass is always greener on the other side too. There are differences in every relationship and different kinds of attraction. There's a point where things become comfortable. As Sarah Silverman's character says, there's always a gap in life. It's not a bad thing or a good thing it just is.

It's a great, heart wrenching movie. It's also possessing some gorgeous cinematography. Seth Rogan also does a great job in a dramatic role.

Totally agree - boring. Fast forwarded a bit to see if it was going anywhere, it wasn't; so I sent it - back to the library!
