Sort of alright
30 March 2010 | by See all my reviews

I was expecting more laughs from this movie, but it wasn't bad actually. The story was nice and interesting. However, the most interesting part of the movie was the quirky characters and there were lots of them.

The cast of the movie was good, for both leading and supporting roles. The actors and actresses did a good job bringing their characters to life.

The bad thing about this movie was that you wanted to see more development from the characters, getting to know them better and getting involved. Although the cast and characters was good, each character in the movie wasn't given enough time to fully come through on the screen.

I had expected this to be more funny than it actually was. Just managed to raise some smiles for me here and there, but the overall impression of the movie was good. Not a bad way to spend an hour and a half.
