The actors are on their game, with Long digging deeper than he's usually asked to, and Wood showing more restraint than she often does.

While this unrelentingly midtempo movie milks Brooklyn for its chic, it manages to denude it of its color.

With all the obvious flaws, A Case of You is still very entertaining and enjoyable.

A Case of You is a disappointing romantic comedy that aspires to social relevance until the third act, when it settles for pat Freudian revelations.
