“I could not really get to the heart of this – a moral tale? the broken heart? the 20s male? I felt no sympathy for either of the male leads – they are both moral vacuums – and seem unable to establish any meaning in their lives – and perhaps this is the point – the ennui of the sexual male cannot be met or matched so he has as many casual sexual relationships to fill the void – while I got it I found the style of the film highly bizarre and unsatisfactory – it looks, feels, and is shot like a light romantic comedy – but contains a lot of pretty nasty drama type situations. And in the middle a lot of absolutely gratuitous sex. Arguing that we need a film about sex addiciton needs as much as nudity as possible is justified – it just ain’t right – and comes across as an attempt to titillate the viewer – strangely boring – the direction is sloppy.”

“The comedic timing of several moments in the movie were impeccable… whether it was the acting, directing, editing, or all of the above, it as overall great. As the movie progresses it becomes very dark and you feel for what the protagonist (antagonist) is going through. Savage makes you empathize for him. Relationships with all characters were organic and developed. The director Segal did an amazing job at showing the human as an onion showing all layers of who we are and at the same time adding an element of humor to lighten the darkness of what lies deep within all of us as humans. Humor in Honesty… Many props to Segal.”
