Details Limited Release: Feb 19, 2010; Rated: R; Length: 90 Minutes; Genre: Drama; With: Alexis Bledel, Bryan Greenberg and Scott Porter; Distributor: Roadside Attractions

There might be an okay movie buried inside this unfocused dramedy about a love triangle involving a cocky banker (Porter), his girlfriend (Bledel), and his new co-worker (Greenberg). The Good Guy has a few half-cute moments, some chuckles, and enough pretty faces to cast at least two TV pilots. What it doesn't have is a clue. One by one, each scene goes slack as the script struggles with Screenwriting 101 problems like who the main character is and what he wants — not to mention why any of us should care in the first place.
