Four people go up to a rooftop at the same time to commit suicide, and wind up forging friendships instead and a pact to stay alive. Yes, that's the basic summary of "A Long Way Down," the upcoming comedy (really) from Pascal Chaumeil, the director behind French rom-com "Heartbreaker" that put him on the map a few years back. Though, this might take him off it.

A Long Way Down

Four people go up to a rooftop at the same time to commit suicide, and wind up forging friendships instead and a pact to stay alive. Yes, that's the basic summary of "A Long Way Down," the upcoming comedy (really) from Pascal Chaumeil, the director behind French rom-com "Heartbreaker" that put him on the map a few years back. Though, this might take him off it.

A promising cast has been assembled for this one with Aaron Paul, Pierce Brosnan, Imogen Poots and Toni Collette in the lead roles, with the movie based off a boy by Nick Hornby (the dude who brought us "High Fidelity" and "About A Boy"). So what could go wrong? Apparently a lot. Reviewing the film out of Berlin, our Jessica Kiang says it's "galling to think of all that time and effort and talent being put to waste on a project as lacking in merit as this one." Youch. So yeah, she wasn't a fan.

But perhaps you will be? Watch a clip courtesy of EW below. The film arrives on iTunes/On Demand on June 6th and in theaters July 11th.
