Stuck In Love review

A family of writers struggle with their own romantic problems

From the hip soundtrack to the sharp and snarky dialogue, writer/director Josh Boone’s debut wears its indie credentials on its sleeve.

Greg Kinnear is mournfully likeable as a sadsack divorcee heading a family of precociously successful writers (among them Lily Collins), all of whom are wrestling romantic demons of one stripe of another.

The ending may be a little too tidy and obvious, but this is a sweet little study of the right royal mess people can make of relationships when they let their own neuroses take over, and a warm tribute to overcoming them.
