I am shocked to read so many positive reviews on here for this absolutely terribly written film, I can only surmise that some of the cast and crew felt the need to try to bolster what is a very poor piece of Canadian cinema.
The problem lies solely in the script which feels like a first draft. A decent premise that very quickly goes nowhere. Around the one hour mark I was left wondering what possible events could sustain the film for another 40 minutes. As it turns out, the answer lies in a complete plot twist that actually may have worked had the movie been about something to begin with.
The relationship between the two leads would make a nice subplot, but it's not enough to carry a film that has little else going for it.
Decent performances and a competent level of production value are the only things saving this film by being terrible overall, but that only further serves to showcase the problem with a film being based on such terrible source material. All the ingredients were there to make a good film, but it just never even scratches the surface of it's potential for comedy or story.
