There’s nothing like Absurdism to completely skewer the preposterousness of modern life.
All of the characters speak very verbosely, but completely in monotone making them seem alien or robotic.
When we wrote dating bible The Rules in 1995, it became a bestseller.
Our premise was that women who played hard to get got their man, while the women who showed too much interest didn't.
We live in a world now where 90% of our interactions come online, more and more people are finding it hard to connect with human beings on a deeper level, and people stay single much longer.
The new absurdist romantic comedy takes the ridiculousness of dating in the 2010s as an adult and makes finding love not only a desire but a necessity, unless you want to be turned into an animal.The premise of The Rules is that, as unfeminist as it sounds, a woman should do absolutely nothing to start a relationship.The worst that can happen is that he will say yes and date you, leading you to believe that you are in a relationship before eventually ditching you for the woman he really likes - probably one who has followed the Rules. For example, a 30-year-old should wait 12 hours and a 40-plus-year-old should wait a day to reply.A woman described as totally heartless has more than anyone and David chooses her as his paramour, even though he’d be much better suited to a pretty loner (Rachel Weisz) who is shortsighted just like he is.is an incredibly weird movie, but its heart is totally on its sleeve and in the right place.
