I thought "Me And You And Everyone We Know" was a piece of crap but it seems people either LOVE or HATE the movie :-)

With the exception of a select few scenes, Me and You was very pretentious, having quirky characters say quirky things solely for the sake of being offbeat and "indie".

I loved "Children of Men" though!
