Storyline

Former college chums gather for what they think is their fat friend's dying last days, but they instead find her celebrating the last few days before reaching her target weight loss at a mountain lodge with a subsequent hiking trip planned for them all. Though it's the woman's long-held dream journey that she wanted to take with her best friends, the others, largely, can't get over the feeling of being duped, with everyone's emotional baggage breaking out awkwardly all along their forced and uncomfortable three-day hike back to civilization.

Goofs

When Austin and George are the only two left in the hot spring, Austin comments on what is either a full moon or a waxing crescent moon just over the eastern horizon at dawn (they are in the Northern Hemisphere). Neither phase would be in this position. A moon near full would be setting on the western horizon at dawn, opposite the sun, while a waxing crescent moon would not rise until after the sun and would be most visible shortly after sunset.

A funny, emotional and inspiring film not to be missed!
6 November 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

My 2 girlfriends and I saw this in Palm Springs and thought it was a great piece. It kept me laughing through the entire film, although I thought there were a few too many "F" words and felt they detracted from the enjoyment. You didn't need them! The actors were great and look forward to seeing them again. Thanks for being at the screening--I enjoyed the background about the movie. I now have a better understanding about the pitfalls there can be in making a low budget, independent film and how you over came so many to make a great film. I can't wait for your next venture..."The Help". Hopefully the Palm Springs Film Festival will not reject that one or any others you plan to submit.
