Not-so Good Dick 

Directed by Marianna Palka (Phase 4 Films)

Indie movie Good Dick (set in a video store? Check! Super-edgy title? Meh. Dick and Pecker did it adjective-free) starts by exploring a question most current/former video-store employees can relate to: what's the best way to interact with porn-renters? Do you avoid eye contact? Amp up the politeness? Or, like Good Dick's hero (Jason Ritter), do you offer recommendations? It's too bad that writer/director/star Marianna Palka takes this identifiable starting point, and grafts an implausible, unpleasant "romance" between a caustic, agoraphobic incest victim (Palka) and an inexplicably homeless Lloyd Dobler-wannabe (Ritter) onto it. Pat breakthroughs and weird clit-jokes follow. Good riddance!
