Thoughts on Paper Heart

-In a half-documentary, half-mockumentary, Charlyne Yi is on quest to find the definition of love.

-Michael Cera is in it. As humself. Dating Charlyne. Yeah.

-And Jake Johnson playing director Nick Jasenovec.

-The only way I can describe this movie is the same as how I describe Yi: precious. Not cute, or adorable, or quirky, but precious. She's like a little kid, so much so, she fits right into a group of gradeschoolers on a playground. Which is the best part, by the way.

-If you reject the allure of Michael Cera, self-aware hipsters, conversations about love from people married for fifty years, and the like, then you'll hate this. All I can say.
