About Alex
Every generation needs a couple of reunion movies, and in “About Alex" we have another one. First-time writer-director Jesse Zwick doesn't so much swing for the fences as attempt to dribble a single down the baseline. This comedy-drama doesn't reach any untold heights, but with formula pictures like this, you can only hope the company is pleasant. With this cast, those meager expectations are reached.

You'd be forgiven for having tuned out of, or indeed never ventured near, Fox's Zooey Deschanel-starring sitcom "New Girl." The series, about an oddball girl who moves in with three male housemates, had a generic premise, an infuriating ad campaign, and a very patchy first few episodes. But over time, it's very much found its foot: the writing's gotten sharp and very funny, the direction's been strong (thanks to a selection of indie talent including John Hamburg, Miguel Arteta, Jesse Peretz, Lynn Shelton, and Nanette Burnstein) and the cast have gelled into an impressive comic ensemble. It's not going to change your life or anything, but it's steadily evolved into a highly enjoyable show.
