Meandering New York-based tale of a complacent commercial-jingle writer (Martin Freeman), whose relationship with his live-in girlfriend (Gwyneth Paltrow) has soured, so he begins to fantasize about an idealized
woman (Penelope Cruz), and with the help of a New Age dream expert (Danny DeVito), works to conjure her in his sleep (even during the day) to escape his increasing doldrums. Despite Freeman's hangdog appeal, and decent performances from a cast that includes Simon Pegg and Michael Gambon, viewers of writer-director Jake Paltrow's feature-film debut may find refuge in sleep themselves. Pervasive rough language and casual profanity, crude expressions and sexual references, a nonmarital living arrangement, brief upper female nudity, sexual groping and implied masturbation. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is L -- limited adult audience, films whose problematic content many adults would find troubling. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted. Under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian.
