A breath of fresh air...
4 November 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I watched this movie on Netflix where it got a much better rating than here and I think for good reason. A simple movie about an adult subject that couldn't have been more entertaining and finally ...without any big Hollywood input of any kind. The movie was over before I realized I had watched the whole thing without being bored for a minute. The characters were all likable and again..played very simply and well. I watch lots of movies, one a day at least, and am a tough critic that usually finds fault with most of them, especially big blockbusters, but this, for what it was, had no flaws really. It was good to see Garret Morris from Saturday Night Live of old too. Again...it was a simple movie with a nice message.
