EPIC! Why Not Just Enjoy The Ride?!
18 March 2012 | by See all my reviews

I knew very little about this film before seeing it.

My 20 year old daughter had just seen it, crowned it 'AWESOME' and wanted to take me and her 15 year old sister. My daughters both know about my wild youth, as I know about theirs...

Well, I have to concur with my daughters - it was 'EPIC'. To the naysayers who are calling this trash, I say, too f'in' bad for you guys! You obviously have never been to a real party! Sure, it may go a little over the top - it's a movie! Get it?! People don't really fly either, Einstein! I am almost hittin 60 and I remember some kick ass parties. FUN.

Loosin' up! You're gonna die anyway.

Everyday I'm shufflin'...
