When the world is in peril, When Evil surrounds you ...
28 August 2010 | by (Switzerland) – See all my reviews

No matter your sex or what is your age difference, when you find a friend, if it is sincere, you have found one.

A one you can cherish, take care of, and don't listen to others prohibiting you of, because of rules and rules.

Hat's off to Writers, Directors, Jeff Daniels and Emma Stone. Emma, please give your DNA to a sort of preservation bank, perhaps we or our kids get a chance of having your clone as a friend or more if it worked out ;)

A small movie like this, playing with your imagination, emotions and feelings, up to this level? This must be either a proof to talents or something just ran off the normal Hollywood's crap line of production accidentally! /s

Want to witness real talent, feeling yourself in their place? Then this is your chance to appreciate a rare feel good movie, so real, you think you are Richard Dunn. (obviously I'm a male!)

I'm still looking back at the cupboard waiting the fantastic Ryan Reynolds as Captain Excellent to jump out of it!

I wish one day I could find a friend like Abby, giving some sense to my life.

Thank you for such a movie. These are the ones we support with our pockets not those 200 Gazillion Dollar ones targeted only for money and as empty as the popcorn box or the cola bottle at the end.

Open a bottle of wine, and taste this movie with, preferably a Friend.

Cheers!
