I really liked this movie a lot. Refreshingly real-feeling and ultimately positive.

I really liked this movie a lot. I found it refreshingly real-feeling – no overdone dramatics or glossy cheer, just normal people doing what they can to deal with their issues and circumstances – and finding connections with others to keep moving forward. Having suffered from nearly paralyzing depression myself I can fully relate. I’m much better now, but like alcoholism you’re never really done with it – you just become better at keeping it at bay and/or managing it. And I thought the acting was great! It’s when you feel like you’re just looking at other normal people moving through life that you know you’re actually watching great acting. Five stars!

A refreshing departure from sensationalism

I loved almost everything about this movie. The characters were complex and we learn about them as they learn about each other. What a concept--people getting to know and trust one another. We need more movies like this as an antidote for the usual war-mongering propaganda calling itself entertainment that is foisted upon us nonstop.

IT was much different than I expected really, but I liked it

I only have one complaint, couldn't they have given us some closure by actually letting us hear him ask her and having her give him the answer we all wanted to hear. Would that have been too much to ask. I LIKE HAPPY ENDINGS. The implication was there, but it fell short of giving us the actual words. Call me critical, but come on......when the writers feel that they need to be "artsy" and make the ending just a "bit different" I say, well screw that.

DIfferent. Engaging. Good acting

This flick is weird. Actors look like regular people found anywhere.

The story line is interesting. Relatable. It happens to all of us at some point. Acting is good. The actors live their characters, organically and naturally. Dark humor.

Clearly highly relatable as would appear evident from postings here.
Its a cliché and possibly true that depression is all over the country, bringing suicide along with it.
In some cases, sufferers might provide a way out for each other.
After thoroughly enjoying this, it occurred to me that this had the power it did because it evoked strong sympathy, particularly for the male lead. The female is a more prickly character, with admirable qualities of her own.
This little gem is a reward for sifting through a lot of dubious material available.
I highly recommend.

Life In Color was worth the watch! It's really primarily a drama with shades of "the poignant" romance that suburb uppity privileged white broads tend to seek out cuz "they can relate" (or so they say they do). Add a sprinkle of comedic croutons on top of it tho.

It's about two losers that we track trying to get their lives together after a ridiculous incident that is pretty funny gets them both fired from their jobs and they resultingly they both bond and end up helping each other in different manners.

It feels like it had parts written and obviously does include a lot of 'local scene' comedians as because i could recognize the general vibe from my days in a local comedy scene (and the faxtvoje plot point involves winning a standup comp...only something a standup comedian would write about with that much emphasis lol). The humor in this joint not being a knee-slapper laugh riot. It's like more your subtle sullen-ish acerbic wit humor mostly that I've seen certain standup comedians like to dramatize I'm films.

Acting was top notch from the redhead chick who was also the director. The other guy who plays the loser was decent too.

All in all it is a bit slow moving but based on the sullen mood romance it is indeed the appropriate pacing for this movie and nothing else wouldve really been appropriate. There was actually very little that i didnt like about this movie to be honest tho I dont think I would jump to watch it again because im not the privileged white woman audience that could really enjoy this type of "cute poignant romance" multiple times. To me it's for those who get replay out of "Watching The Detective"s or "Friend Needed For The End of The World". Or to a somewhat lesser degree "Social Animals"

i had no expectations. just started watching this movie as background noise, but then characters felt like friends--the depression, the sarcasm, the respite of a palm springs weekend with someone you could actually relate to.

in today's world of overdone, overacted, over ridiculous entertainment, this movie was a breath of fresh air. beautifully acted and only the tiniest bit cheesy at the very end.

What a pleasant surprise

I really enjoyed this and it had me laughing as well as relating to the character's lives. It started slow but rapidly gathered momentum. I am not affiliated to this movie in any way, I just liked it. I recommend.
