I happened to be visiting my sister this week, and lo and behold a DVD of "Tiny Furniture" arrived. She'd put it in her NF queue on the basis of positive reviews (at least from the critics). Since I'd enjoyed the first season of "Girls" I looked forward to watching this movie, especially after seeing the opening credits and that Merritt Dever (from "Nurse Jackie") was in it.
Dreadful. And Merritt Dever had a useless bit-part.
My sister finally stood up after 1/2 of it and said "This is beyond seriously weird, and it's also not entertaining. Is it supposed to be a comedy? Good night." And she left.
I stuck with the whole film, but the hoped-for enjoyment did not get there for me either.
I recommend that people NOT waste any time watching this movie.
