Synopsis
A struggling actor decides to quit the business in the most permanent way possible in this dark comedy drama starring Paul Rudd, Donal Logue, and Mackenzie Astin. Dismayed at his lack of success onscreen and depressed by his lackluster personal life, actor Paul Miller (Rudd) announces that in two days time he will take his own life. Hiring a documentary crew to follow him as he says his goodbyes and prepares to take the final plunge, Paul steps to center stage for a starring role in the film that finds him seeking meaning and hope in the brief 48 hours before his scheduled demise. As the clock winds down and the crew nervously prepares for Paul's big send-off, one question remains -- will Paul have the courage to see his final role through to the bitter end? ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide

I'm bumping up 2 DAYS an extra notch because it goes where few American movies about suicide dare--into a very nearly existential attitude. When I say, "it goes," I also must admit it does not stay there. But at least it visits. Paul Rudd gives a fascinating performance as an out-of-work actor who, though both attractive and talented, is tired of living. His friends and "exes," of course, all try to dissuade him, for reasons that have as much to do with them as with him. There are many chances here for cheap comedy, cheap dramatics, cheap romance, cheap everything--yet nothing looks cheap (except the budget--which is fine, since this is supposed to be a "home movie"). 2 DAYS is consistently thoughtful, surprising and often funny, with excellent performances from pros like Caroline Aaron and Graham Beckel and good ones from the younger set such as Mackenzie Astin. I'd never heard of this film before, so I want to call it to the attention of members. If you care about American independent moviemaking, take a chance on 2 DAYS. Although it never brings the subject up, this film strikes me as quintessentially post-9/11-America in both content and philosophy.
