The film is an extremely well-written character story. All of the characters are very realistic, and likable despite their flaws. Their interactions are what make the film what it is, and they're great. Much like Birbiglia's other film, "Sleepwalk with Me", Birbiglia incorporates comedy performances into the film in a way that is funny and natural. The casting of the film is also great, as it really feels like there is a friendship between the main cast members of the film. Their chemistry is great, and provides for many of the film's laughs and emotional moments. The story is really interesting, and it's about characters that are humanized very well.
The film is also very well made. There are a lot of great shots in the film. The choices made on the soundtrack fit very well with the movie's tone. The production design is also very impressive, creating a realistic world for these characters to live in.
So overall, I really loved "Don't Think Twice". It's a funny film with likable characters. It's not revolutionary, but it's well-done and definitely worth watching.
