'The Words' Were Just That

I watched the movie 'The Words' last night and the word I kept thinking was "wish." I wished that this movie was as good as it could have been - that it was more than just a bunch of words.
The parts with Bradley Cooper, (though not outstandingly acted) were interesting. Sadly, the movie tries to function like a book where you are at different levels at different times and while that is pretty seamless in the written form, it was clunky in the film and detracted from an otherwise entertaining story.
Sadly, as a result of the poor structure and an ending that doesn't really add anything to the chunk of the story, the film is probably not worth your time.
