A girl goes on a quest to discover what true love is, finding it along the way.
1 January 2012 | by (New Hampshire) – See all my reviews

I watched this movie simply because of Michael Cera, and sadly I was very disappointed. The movie is so predictable, and it drags out way too long. At the end if left me wondering who ever thought that the ending was original or funny or whatever they were trying to do with it.The chemistry between the actors was natural and funny at some points, but overall I wish I would have never wasted an hour and a half of my life on this movie. Nothing about the movie made me impressed with the actors performances, and the only time I truly enjoyed the movie was when I was listening to the interviews of those in love. However I didn't think that the ending was natural or even remotely good. If I could sum up this movie in one word it would be boring, because it just keep dragging on, revisiting the same points, and I was just waiting for what I already knew was coming.
