Wristcutters: A Love Story

Wristcutters: A Love Story ★★★½

Film #1 of the March 2016 Scavenger Hunt
Item #1: An unconventional romantic film

A few years ago I wrote a script for a dark comedy about two best friends committing suicide and ending up in an afterlife full of assholes. I told my buddy about it and he said "Oh that's exactly like Wristcutters." I was bummed that my original idea wasn't so original and I made a note to see this flick but just never got around to it.

So now that I've seen it, what did I think? It was good but formulaic. The premise is wonderful and I loved the first half hour or so. But once the plot gets going it gets incredibly predictable. But there is a great cast including Patrick Fugit (of Almost Famous), Shea Whigham, Tom Waits, John Hawkes and Will Arnett.
