This movie ruined my life
18 June 2014 | by (Oregon) – See all my reviews

Right off the bat, I must say I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. Not perfect, and definitely low budget, but still charming nonetheless. There's something fun about seeing guys just being their cranky selves, without having to put on pretenses.

One serious flaw bugged me, however. Technically this doesn't count as a spoiler, but Britt was seen enjoying yard work. Yeah, I know, the script was fine up to then, at which point it departed from reality. My beloved wife and I had been curled up in front of a fire, relaxing and watching this movie. Next thing I know, I'm on the receiving end of her patented spousal-control stink-eye, as she wonders why I never help around the yard like Britt did. Thanks, screenwriter from hell, for ruining my life.

Other than that, with my life left in ruins, it was a decent movie. I hope to see more from the team, as long as they promise to run the script by me first.
