OCD afflicts Girls main character Hannah, who has been in remission for the better part of a decade. When it returns, we see a full blown relapse in all its eerie "glory." Hannah's first bout officially appeared in high school. We imagine her as a neurotic over-achiever with dreams of being a writer, who went overboard, as she became out of control with her desire to be in control.

Cusack and De Niro are the old pros in this movie and are compelling in each and every scene. They are also able to create the humor even when the situation is deadly. Da Costa jumps right into the midst of things and does her part with flair and ease.

Unfortunately, the script for this film is never sharp or savvy enough to counteract both the ick factor -- two grandfathers beating each other up in boxing trunks -- and just the simple lackluster quality of it all.
