Twitter Capsule: Garish in many ways. Shaky hold on folks it aims to honor. But truly odd romantic dramedies are rare. Here's one!

VOR:   Frequently maladroit and patronizing, maybe fundamentally so, but an intriguing cultural text because the attempt is rare. Keaton's nightmarishness sort of fascinates.
