'While We're Young'
(Ben Stiller, Amanda Seyfriend, Adam Horovitz, Adam Driver, Naomi Watts, Matthew Maher, et al / DVD / R / 2015 / LGF)

Overview: A middle-aged couple's career and marriage are overturned when a disarming young couple enters their lives.

Blu ray Verdict: Well, as much as I truly wanted this to be a most enjoyable movie to sit back and watch with the GF, 'While We're Young' is anything but, sadly. The movie begins really simply: it's about a middle-aged couple of film makers struggling to stay young in their minds and bodies. Alongside these problems, the main character played ,by Ben Stiller, is unable to finish a documentary that's been on the go for almost 10 years. You can feel the man's frustration. They then meet this new young and exciting couple, and start exploring the inner youth again. So yeah, the plot is simple, and it's pretty enjoyable to watch at that point.

But then ... wait ... what just happened? The second half of this movie goes all over the place! You know from the start that something is going to happen, somehow this couple is going to have to face something they weren't expecting or whatever. But what this movie offers is a whole range of subplots that don't always match. Some bits in this movie are just completely random. And the ending is, for me, just a big mess. So many things happen in the second half of the movie, and I felt incredibly frustrated when the final credits came up.

I honestly felt like the director was expecting me to answer the questions that his movie fails to do. And it's not one of these endings like 'Inception', where any given theory can be a justification of how the movie ends. No. This ending felt like the director couldn't be bothered to link everything he threw into this movie, and just gives you a happy-ish ending so that the movie can come to a close. Sorry, but that's just my humble opinion, of course. This is a Widescreen Presentation (1:85.1) enhanced for 16x9 TVs.
