I loved this movie. It is one of those small movies that is a great find. I have watched it several times and I figure out something new each time. I hope the director continues to make more movies because this one is very entertaining. I really liked the friendship between the character's "Jay" and "John". I think you could really see why they were the two guys in the group to be close. Then there was the good relationship "Jay" had with "Wendy" and his relationship with his parents. This was a great movie to discuss with friends. The movie also had some great lines. When Jay told his mom he would try to be a better "guest". I cracked up.
