| Be the Tea, Mr. Yummy
Greetings again from the darkness. There are a few great writers. There are a few great directors. There are very few great writer/directors. Susannah Grant has been known for her strong writing of "In Her Shoes" and "Erin Brokovich". Here her first real attempt at directing is not helped by her less than inspired script.

Never really sure if it aspires to be a statement on loss and human weakness or an awkwardly tender humorous love story, the film rambles along as if every day of production was unrelated to the those previous. Jennifer Garner (fresh off birthing a real life baby) is actually at her best in the opening scenes as she grieves over the loss of her fiancé. She doesn't fare quite so well in subsequent love scenes. Timothy Olyphant ("Deadwood") spends most of the film posing and grinning (with extraordinarily white teeth) at Garner. Kevin Smith is the comic relief and the endless stream of fat jokes grows tiresome quickly. Still Smith supplies a couple of the best moments in the film. Juliette Lewis is back with her customary weirdness, this time with kid in tow.

The two best parts of the film are the few amazing shots featuring the natural beauty of Boulder, Colorado and the nice little soundtrack with some real gems. Looking more like a Lifetime movie than a Hollywood release, this one lacks substance and depth. Here's hoping Ms. Grant's ego has been fed and she returns to her talent of writing quality stories.
