Goodbye Lover (*) - If ever a movie should be just shot, it has to be this one. So much happens in this movie, yet nothing happens.Its plot twists are arbitrary and predictable. It’s not funny even though it seems to wanna be a black comedy. Honestly, I don’t know. Was it supposed to be a black comedy or a variation on film noir? Either way - it sucks and is a big piece of shit. Patricia Arquette should take the money she earned from this film and go get her teeth fixed. A femme fatale shouldn’t have teeth like a retarded vampire. Goodbye Lover and its twists don’t work on us the same way that last year’s vastly superior Wild Things did. That film took familiar twists and made them fresh. I knew how this film was going to go through the motions just by seeing the trailer. Ellen DeGeneres’ partner might seem funny to the filmmakers, but he comes off as nothing more than an annoying idiot that makes you wonder how he ever became a cop. He’s like a character out of the Police Academy series which ranks as more creative than this film which was directed by Roland Joffe.Roland Joffe? What the hell is he thinking? This is the same guy who directed The Killing Fields for God’s sake.
