If you wanna take some aggression out on a father figure - let's get scrappy man

Say When (2014)

Too slight to work as drama, too dull to work as comedy Say When (previously Laggies) is inoffensive but forgettable. 
Keira Knightley is miscast as a young women still acting as though she were a teenager with her stilted, clipped manner at odds with the loose, no direction character she is portraying.
The movie picks up a bit of energy when the ever reliable Sam Rockwell appears but the film doesn't seem to know what it really wants to say (she needs to grow up and live her life as her friends have managed to do by ignoring them?) and suffers from a listless low tempo structure which just kills comedy.
