great little flick
I hadn't heard about this film and was almost turned off by reading the reviews on here as some of them are quite negative. I also do not agree with the it's not a date flick as i'm a female and would have loved to have seen this on a date. It would have offered some interesting discussion later. Was Evelyn (Rachel

Weisz really the villain in this flick as many people so easily point out? Yes, she was cruel in her manipulation of Adam (Paul Rudd) but if he hadn't have done

the things he did she would not have been able to do what she did at the end. Adam may have received a public humiliation but Evelyn endured private

humiliations and that is probably the reason she does not feel bad about what she's done. It's one of the more interesting movies i've seen of late very

refreshing in the role reversal and twist on banal cinderella stories like pretty woman, etc. It's only too bad most people would want to see and like a movie like pretty woman instead of the shape of things which makes you think about

human nature and relationships. I found myself identifying with both the male and female lead characters and thinking about my actions and the actions of

others in relationships.

The shape of things is very human, very real and i highly recommend it. I'm

glad to see Neil Labute back to fine form after more hollywood outings such as possession and nurse betty (which i didn't care for much) and look forward to see what he does next.
