Goofs

Whilst uploading her erotic story to the Le Passion site, it is briefly shown that there is no option for leaving one's phone number. Also, Amy did not attach a file, nor did she include her email address in the spaces provided on the submission form, therefore her receiving a phone call from the magazine is unlikely. See more »

Not a great comedy, but not a bad movie.
18 February 2014 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

Don't go to this movie and expect a grand comedy, the jokes are not piled on to one another with just enough room between them for you to catch your breath.

I had never heard of this movie and just watched it because I love John Cusack, and when I became aware of it's existence I didn't read anything about it before watching (I like to do that, go in to a movie blank in mind, not expecting anything) and I found it to be a sweet movie. It's not the best movie ever, but it is not the worst. It had it's LOL- moments but they were few although not out of place, when I later watched IMDb and saw it was ranked as a comedy and not a drama I was dumbfounded. I would rank it as a comedy/drama at least.

Emma Roberts character felt a little ambiguous at times. And it was weird but actually really refreshing to see John Cusack in the role of the asshole, not a role he often plays without humor attached to it.

It's a movie well worth the watch, if you only keep an open mind to it going in. And I really liked it for what it was, a sweet movie about a girl trying to follow her dreams.
