Delightful, thought provoking and amusing.
16 December 2015 | by See all my reviews

I happened upon this film one afternoon with my 18 year old daughter. I am a 52 year old man and we both thoroughly enjoyed the film. This film transcends age as both me and my daughter were laughing throughout the film, and the dramatic moments were very real and relate-able. Obviously the filmmakers utilized the old' "Open to improvisation" and you can tell they just shot a whole bunch of scenes and pieced together the best of the bunch to fit into the story of the film. There are some really laugh out loud moments in this film and some very dramatic scenes as well. The acting is solid and the characters play against each other very well. Overall a very good film well worth watching.
