Well…I went to go see the movie because I like all the people that were in it. Jason Ritter, Natasha Lyonne, Alia Shawkat. The talent in the movie drew me in, I wanted to see it.
It’s one of those movies that seems to be for a specific group of people. Like this generations Thirty-Something. Got to point out that the group of actors use look good for Thirty-Somethings, which more points out how different being Thirty-something now is than it was when that show aired.
But this is not the focus of the movie. The focus is on the intervention, a group of friends who have known each other forever try to convince two of their friends that they’re in a bad marriage and need to end it. It’s very ironic as you learn real quick, as everyone is tossing rocks when they all live in glass houses.
It has it’s funny moments as the movie is very relateable about life and relationships, as everyone discovers where they are is not necessary where they belong. It makes for a lot of laughs, but sometimes I felt the dramatic performances were rushed to make it more funny.
The intervention is an OK film, it works for me cause I like the cast in it and the laughs come from a it’s so funny it’s true situation. I can see it not working for everyone for the same reasons.
