***This film is currently streaming on Netflix***
Smulders and Bean complement each other quite well and they certainly add depth to their characters. Unfortunately, the film doesn't quite know what to do with them after about forty-five minutes. Writer-director Kris Swanberg kept hitting the same dramatic and comedic notes over and over again and while these notes aren't particularly irritating or grating, the repetition prevents the movie from really progressing. Unexpected is pleasant, but not overly ambitious and while not every movie needs high aspirations, this one needed to have a bit more story in order to really make it worth a watch.
The RyMickey Rating: C
