So Paper Heart Is Like A Twee, Girly Borat?

There’s a first trailer for the Sundance curiosity Paper Heart, a mockumentary about comedian Charlyne Yi’s fake search for the true nature of love, also starring her boyfriend Michael Cera:

Even though, from reading blogs, I knew the documentary aspect of the movie was fake, this still feels like a put-on (and a reallllly precious, twee one at that.) But many of the Sundance reviews refute this (favorite blurb: “I found myself getting choked up during one puppet sequence.” Okay!) Obviously any movie starring Michael Cera is going to be given a chance (I even saw Nick And Norah! Cute!), he needs to man up a little and start taking on fewer projects that can be best described as “adorable.” It’s time.
