|Synopsis:||Good Dick is slice of weirdness. Funny in a low-fi sort of way with strong drama elements it deals with two people who are damaged by life: the man, Jason Ritter, can't find love, and the woman, Marianne Palka, can't accept love. She lives through erotic films. He works in a video store. He falls for her and starts spying on her (Not as creepy as it sounds). What this film, like Lars and the Real Girl, does well is handle some tough issues about sex and sexuality in the format of a romantic comedy drama. Not wholly successful at least Palka, who wrote, stars, and directs, does produce a film and a character that is worth watching. Sometimes an uneasy watch, and sometimes just jarring, Tom Arnold is basically wrong in our opinion here, it is even experimental in its thinking. That aside it is watchable and memorable; just don't expect a comedy of belly laugh proportions but rather to be challenged and you may enjoy this more than you know.|
