American independent filmmaker Jane Weinstock makes her feature debut with the romantic comedy Easy, shot on digital video. Marguerite Moreau plays Jamie, a single gal living in Los Angeles who makes a living by giving creative names to consumer products. Although she's adept at catching men for her own pleasure, she decides to give up sex for 90 days. The decision is supported by her stoner friend, Martin (D.B. Woodside), and her married sister, Laura (Emily Deschanel). However, some handsome fellows -- poet John (Naveen Andrews) and talk show host Mick (Brian F. O'Byrne) -- cause her… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Weinstock's screenplay takes too many shortcuts, never letting the characters emerge as people in their own right, rather than as a collection of carefully assigned character traits."
‑ Moira MacDonald, Seattle Times
"The movie ends on exactly the right note, but it hits a lot of bad ones on the way."
‑ Jack Mathews, New York Daily News
"A few chuckles and an attractive cast of capable actors can't overcome a scattered script that travels well-worn indie territory."
‑ , E! Online
"A date movie whose unresolved conflicts allows us in the audience to discuss possible scenarios for the future."
‑ Harvey S. Karten, Compuserve
"Weinstock adds such realism to her script and such great characters, you can't help but like this film even if it does sort of follow a formula."
‑ Don R. Lewis, Film Threat
"A small but satisfying romance with a pleasant soundtrack and some unusual backdrops."
‑ Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger
"It is a lively, idiosyncratic romantic comedy, funny and sexy but with a strong serious streak."
‑ Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
"... tries to coast on this surface of quirks and cute details, but Weinstock's perfunctory direction stumbles over her attempts at humor and sabotages her performers."
‑ Sean Axmaker, Seattle Post-Intelligencer
"It's easy to pan Easy as a second-rate effort to make a first-rate indie movie. But you may come away well satisfied with your hour and a half's entertainment."
‑ Joshua Tanzer, Offoffoff
"[Weinstock] does an impressive job of capturing the brave messiness of single life, or at least of 20-something dating."
‑ Anita Gates, New York Times
"There's much too much going on here, enough for an entire season of a TV sitcom, which Easy should have been in the first place."
‑ V.A. Musetto, New York Post
"The movie has some nice character work and quite a few good laughs to offer."
‑ Bob Strauss, Los Angeles Daily News
"Jane Weinstock certainly has talent, and Marguerite Moreau deserves more opportunities to shine as a lead, but the longer Easy goes on, the less of that talent you see."
