The Longest Week looks familiar

5 second plot: Conrad is a 40-year old guy who lives off of his parents' wealth. One day they cut him off. All of a sudden he is broke and homeless. He's got a good friend who lets him stay in his house. But then Conrad falls in love with the woman his friend was already interested in. And things get complicated.

5 second review: I seriously thought I was watching a Woody Allen movie. The setting, the talks, the backgrounds, the hotel lobby music,.. the style is identical. Or is this just me? The first part of the movie is pretty great. But then suddenly the fun is over and there doesn't seem to be anything interesting left to say. Thank god Olivia Wilde was there to lighten the mood.

IMDb score: 5,5/10
