A film dedicated to no one in particular

Dedication (2007): 4/5

Justin Theroux’s directorial debut ‘Dedication’ aptly falls under the romantic comedy file, but it’s also a cross between multiple genres- with that whiny singer/actress of A Walk to Remember and one of the most talented and underrated actors, Billy Crudup. ‘Dedication’ basically follows a children’s book author Henry who has to collaborate with a new illustrator, Lucy.

Billy Crudup’s character (Henry) was actually one of the main reasons this film took a positive turn from sloping down the cliched path- but then again, I may be partial to endearing misogynists with OCD (see E. Edward Grey and Patrick Bateman .,haha). The downside is that the trippy editing doesn’t do a thing for the narrative- but it’s only appropriate for the equally confused characters in the story. Watch this movie for whatever’s on the surface and just like myself, you’ll probably find it to be a surprisingly entertaining film if you’re tired of predictable bright and sunny stories. 🙂
