Mr. Jealousy - 7

Written and directed by Noah Baumbach who is friends with Wes Anderson co-wrote The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou. They are both working on The Fantastic Mr. Fox. This film reminded me of a Woody Allen film, in that it takes place in New York and has many of the same relationship issues. It is both a funny film and deals well with the issue of jealousy in any relationship. A lot of the film uses narrations to add to the storytelling of the actors. The film focuses on Lester, who cannot help but think about his girlfriends ex-boyfriends and comes to the point of obsessing over it. In the end, the humorous truth comes out and all the characters have to think about issues of trust and honesty in relationships. This is a fun film to watch.
