'The Shape Of Things'
(Rachel Weisz, Paul Rudd, Gretchen Mol / R / 114 mins / Focus Features)

Overview: Adam is a classic nerd: glasses, a mop of hair, bad clothes, a little overweight, and incredibly awkward. So of course he's surprised when sexy art student Evelyn (Rachel Weisz) takes an interest in him. They begin dating, and gradually she begins a serious makeover of her new boyfriend, even convincing him to get a nose job before finally asking Adam to ditch his two best friends (Gretchen Mol, Frederick Weller).

Verdict: Though the writing is often sharp, one is reminded repeatedly by the actors' theatrical delivery of some lines thus ensuring that The Shape of Things' is a very well-acted - but psychologically superficial - comedy (about people's obsession with looks!) Bitingly dark and a lot of fun, the flick will make you hoot, holler, curse the actors, damn LaBute and argue like hell with your date!
