A coin flip decides whether a young couple (Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Lynn Collins) attends a Fourth of July bash or has a wild adventure in the city.
" Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Lynn Collins are so interesting that it's easy to put up with the decision-making dithering that goes along with the title. "
" The film bets everything on an unconventional structure, but fails to do much with it. "
" A taut, skillful exercise in cinematic clockwork. "
" You either swallow it and learn to love it, or you start running. "
" Rain Li's crisp cinematography gives the entwined stories different but complementary visual styles. Paul Zucker's editing supports each genre then poses fresh questions by leaping from one to the other. "
" Excellent New York City location shooting and the ever-reliable Joseph Gordon-Levitt can't salvage this gimmicky, overlong thriller from Scott McGehee and David Siegel... "
" The result is some nice atmospherics tethered to a cripplingly half-baked existentialism. "
" Bobby and Kate are puppets on strings, both pulled roundabout through McGehee-Siegel's phony proving ground toward a howler of a final exchange. "
