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.

Quotes

Lucy: Wait, is this some kind of, like, a mercy fuck? I mean, is that what this...?
Austin: Yes, it is, and I am begging you, please have mercy on me.

A waste of money!
14 November 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I expected more when I saw the accolades but I'm disappointed in the film. I guess this film is supposed to be about a life changing four days for Lucy and her college friends. Years past, they get married, divorced, and have children and careers. A star cast includes Missi Pyle and Melissa McCarthy. The other cast members are fine but the script is weak. The film has great scenery. I can't get past the negativeness of the film. There is no character to root for anyway. Sure, Lucy loses the weight but her mind as well. She thinks her weight loss will lead to feeling accepted and an equal peer. Lucy has a self esteem issue as well. Things change but not much.
