This angst-ridden, young-adult, alleged comedy lacks both heart and humor, though it’s clearly aiming for both. Youthful stars Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart aren’t really bad, but they are not served well by either the choppy script or the clumsy direction. For a better film in this genre, try last year’s Nick and Nora’s Infinite Playlist.
