'The Oranges': Little reality in this New Jersey-set tale ★★
In "The Oranges," each time someone on screen is about to tip into dangerous sexual territory or wrestle with complicated, painful feelings, along comes the musical score by Klaus Badelt and Andrew Raiher to remind us we're watching a comedy — a rueful one, but tidy and safe. The music pats us on the arm: No real harm will come to anyone. No need to fret.
