PEOPLE LIKE US (2012) movie review

People like Chris Pine made this film look good. Timing is his strong suit.

People like Michelle Pfeiffer have obviously not aged with joy. And people like Olivia Wilde struggle to look dowdy enough to play the bit-part girlfriend.

People Like Us is not a comedy. It’s a tragedy. Lack of plot leaves characters fishing through raucous emotions to offer terrible advice to the next generation, setting him up to live a plotless life fishing through the same raucous emotions…in other words, nothing happens.

Tough to rely on even decent actors for an eventless film with only one honest scene (park bench at night) and a few cool looking Aronofsky-esqe shots.
