Maybe I'm not the best candidate to enjoy "Lars and the Real Girl," a sickeningly sweet fantasy about a town full of people who have nothing else to do but enable a delusional loner's fantasy that a full-size doll is his girlfriend.
But, honestly, things take place in this movie that belie the basic rules of modern society. If you're making a film that takes place in the real world, how can you expect anyone to buy that when someone calls 9-1-1 because he believes his doll-girlfriend is dying, EMTs would attach a respirator and drive the doll to the hospital in an ambulance. Isn't that, like, a grossly irresponsible (not to mention expensive) use of medical resources? I'd love to see the insurance claim for that. And isn't it illegal to call 9-1-1 if you don't have an emergency involving a real human being?
Furthermore, and this is just a piece of advice from me to the women of the world: If you have a friend who is planning to date said delusional loner just as soon as his doll "dies," tell her to re-think the qualities she looks for in a man. That guy is probably not going to be the best life partner. Even if he's no longer dating the doll, he probably has a few more issues he needs to work out before he's ready to be in a relationship with a living breathing woman.
I know, I know, I'm a stickler for tiny little details. But I'm just saying.
