I wish he was because Paul delivers a finely-tuned broody performance, albeit one we've seen him deliver before in everything from indie drama "Smashed" to big-budget action-adventure "Need for Speed." With that annoying, cutesy episode, the sort that only happens in bad movies, Come and Find Me proves instantly unworthy of the audience's trust. When his girlfriend goes missing, David must track down her whereabouts … We see David and Claire flirting when they paint their first apartment together, and wind up scribbling bathroom-stall-quality graffiti insults to each other all over their ceiling.
