This was a repeat viewing for me. "Results" gets even better the second time around, because it is a subtle movie with subtle writing, directing and acting, which unearths new insights and pleasures on re-watch.
Watch Danny (Kevin Corrigan) as he tells Trevor (Guy Pearce) that he wants to "learn to take a punch." The low-to-high trajectories and odd body sites where he demonstrates this punching are clues as to why he only wants to absorb punishment without disgrace, not dish it back out.
Watch Kat (Cobie Smulders) when she asks Trevor if it would be fun to do a certain activity together. She's really feeling him out for other information which you can see means the whole world to her, and since she's on the phone she can let her wistful longing show.
Watch Trevor when he impulsively invites Kat to join him on business in a distant Texas town, or when he asks her if that's Danny on the other end of a call. His delight in both cases is palpable and quite lovable.
If you enjoy acting moments like these, "Results" is a feast. Don't expect a heavy-handed multiplex comedy; this is an indie character study with lots of wit but pathos as well. Everybody in the strong cast -- including Anthony Michael Hall as a Russian trainer who is Trevor's idol (despite his philosophy being the exact opposite of Trevor's), Brooklyn Decker as his obedient wife, and Giovanni Ribisi as Danny's slimy lawyer pal -- holds your attention and amuses, even when they are being as impossible and irritating as people are in real life.
And I could watch Corrigan and Ribisi play acting ping pong all day long.
The film can use a little trimming in spots for a faster pace. Sound and music very inventively and wittily help tell the story, though, and the whole project has the pleasurable air of a personal, handcrafted treasure.
