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.

Missoula, Kentucky?
27 February 2012 | by See all my reviews

I also stopped watching about 10-20 minutes in. That's a very rare move for me. I consider myself from rural America, and found the "blacks in these parts" bit tiresome. Also, why was the local hillbilly (in Missoula, Montana, a city of at least 60,000... with hundreds of African-Africans living there as well as a university with a large international population) speaking with such an aw-shucks southern accent? Montana is not The South. It just gets under my skin when it seems as though all people outside of the Northeast or California are portrayed speaking in folksy, Appalachian drawls. Apologies for not sitting through it, but... I was a trifle insulted.
