Inventive, funny, low-budget rom-com
Had to add a review after catching this on Netflix, being intrigued by the film, and reading the other two oddly harsh reviews.
Screwed has its limitations: most notably, the low production values of an indie done on a tight budget, and a predictable and somewhat disappointing ending. And on netflix, all passages with music tracks have been entirely muted out--presumably due to copyright issues?--which makes for a jarring performance.
But those flaws aside, it has an engaging cast, a great deal of wit, and an interesting premise. Well worth your time. The film industry would be much better off if more pictures like this saw the light of day.
