Not so much a mockumentary as it is a doc-narrative hybrid, the film sees her on a quest to discover if there is such a thing as true love, which she doesn’t believe in.Traveling with her filmmaker friend Nick (as in Jasenovec, but played onscreen by Jake Johnson) to meet real-life romance novelists, scientists, bikers and kids — all of whom have their own interpretations of love — Yi ultimately meets and begins a relationship with “Superbad” star Michael Cera, which gets complicated when the cameras don’t stop rolling. I have really bad rhythm, but I tried to play quietly.If this is true, which is likely, then could Cera and Yi ever really have dated?Whether put-on or physical impossibility, both theories leave room for a Cameron Crowe-style reconciliation., the faux-documentary starring Michael Cera and Charlyne Yi that debuted at Sundance this year. For a bit of clarification - this is not a real documentary and it was actually scripted, however, as far as I know, Cera and Yi are dating in real life. It’s ostensibly a documentary about the nature of love; Yi admits upfront that she doesn’t believe in love, and sets out on a mission with director Nick Jasenovec to chat with a variety of people—longtime married couples, scientists, children—about their thoughts on the subject. Jake Johnson: All the documentary is real, from the psychic to the kids, everybody, to the judge. AVC: What was the purpose behind creating the confusion?
There he sees a girl with unwaxed eyebrows, in sweatpants, strumming a guitar and she embodies beauty in her own independent way.Then she said that she made that song, hoping that she could win him (michael cera) back. I don’t really know what reason Michael Cera had for breaking-up with Charlyne but he’s old and mature so he probably knows how to make good decisions already.Maybe he has other plans for his future or maybe there’s just no spark in their relationship anymore (which I highly doubt because they have been together a lot since both of them starred in the film paper heart)Still, the Yi-Cera relationship gave the sweatpants community of geek girls hope that their precious wit and song writing skills were enough to keep a sensitive young man away the dopey taneroxic starlets of Hollywood. As a whip-smart commenter pointed out a love-affair with between Yi and Cera would have been like a “gummi bear getting it on with the Velveteen Rabbit.” We speculated that a boy with Cera’s sexual persona may in fact not have genitals, just a rainbow colored fleshy patch that sparkles when excited.I know this is an indie film and they've got to sell it to audiences, but some of the best parts are ruined in this trailer. If you know you already want to see this, then I suggest you skip the trailer, and just go anyway.
