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.

Unfunny & unwatchable
20 September 2009 | by (Los Angeles, United States) – See all my reviews

I went to see this today at the Laemmle Sunset. I like Missy Pyle, but 15-20 minutes in and she had barely appeared. What showed up instead were an entirely implausible group of "friends" spouting banal, dreary quips about how they still happened to be connected--which I did not buy in the least.

I was pleased that the cameo from the always-marvelous Allison Janney came within those first 15 minutes. It wasn't well-written, but she did the best she could.

After a joke about black people being noticeable in the West because there are so few of them was made not once, but 3 times, I walked out. Life's too short for bad work like this nonsense.
