An emotionally draining yet compellingly vivid drama about the death of dreams. But then you look below the surface, you realize that from the opening frame, there is more here than meets the eye. "I Melt with You" is an insufferable, derivative and dreary mess of a nihilistic movie whose cliched idea of a mid-life crisis involves a Porsche or two. If only the barely developed characters in this movie thought about this before...

They have a great on screen chemistry. All throughout part one of the film, you feel the happiness and comradery, but at part two, when tension rises, you feel them as they realize how little they actually know, and you're left on the edge of your seat, wondering what new and unexpected turn will be taken next, because at that point, the joy turns sower and you realize that no one is same, from themselves or each other.
