In any romantic drama trailer there is an equation:
Person + hurt = Loner. Loner + New Love Interest = The Good Life (Coming out of their shell, laughing in the rain, running around smiling like a kid, love, new found strength..."go head mommy breathe again" as Diddy said.)
So the new "Her" trailer with Joaquin Phoenix is no different. The only problem is that the new love interest is artificial intelligence that seems to travel with him via phone, computer, tablet, fill in the blank technology. Now I love Joaquin Phoenix. I think he's a great actor. The supporting cast is pretty good as well. Yet, am I the only one that thinks a movie about falling in love with AI is a bit on the strange side?
Spike Jonez directing and Joaquin acting is a good combo. I'll try to be open minded and believe there's more to this film than the trailer lets on, but the celebration of a man falling in love with his computer is odd to me.
