REVIEW:
When I saw this movie was made by the makers of Juno and Little Miss Sunshine, I got high hopes. I loved both of those films, and I mean LOVED!
I was totally let down though. This film comes no where near as good as those two I watched previously.
I kept watching though, hoping it would get better or pick up the pace and get more exciting. It just didn't. It wasn't that kind of movie at all.
It had a couple good parts. Had some characters that I liked and wish had bigger parts in the film, but still I couldn't get into it.
I watched to the end and am not a fan, however I am positive there are people out there who will feel different than me. It's just too contemporary for me.


2/5

  1. I also liked Juno and Little Miss Sunshine. Both were quirky, but entertaining. It's a shame this one isn't as good.
