Dialog that's supposed to sound authentic only sounds ridiculous. Maybe I'm making too big a thing of this one piece of dialog, but I don't think so.

This is supposed to be a movie about real, contemporary young people like the girl down the hall in the four-plus-one, I guess.
But John and Mary act like nobody I've ever met on land or sea. Here's what happens. John picks up Mary in the bar, likes her looks the anemic, haunted face grabs him, takes her home to his pad, sleeps with her, and then the next day not even knowing each other's names they gingerly try to decide whether to live with one another.
Mary seems fairly normal, but John has one of those hang-ups that are fashionable in singles bars: He only likes the girl if she doesn't appear to want him to like her too much. She figures this out, and so she pretends and then he pretends. He pretends so hard that she leaves. He races after her. He doesn't know her name, but he does know the general neighborhood she lives in. So he charters a cab and cruises up and down side streets for about five hours, occasionally jumping out of the cab to ask a cop: "Do you know where there are any streets with trees on them?
