Bad life choices
28 November 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Sometimes people have too much freedom and make bad life choices and I feel like this is what this is about. 3 best friends whose priorities are in the wrong place and we can see how it plays out.

As far as dramas go I wish we had more movies like this. It settles into their life, this movie is slow at parts but it is intentional. It is not just about crazy antics but also their relationships.

There were a couple things that I think could have been a little better, acting unconvincing in parts. I had a hard time remembering names and who they were to who but I am bad with that anyway. Characters I think could have been developed a little more clearly.

Overall a pretty fun ride and good drama.
