Storyline

It's summertime in Columbia, Missouri. The college students have all gone home and Kirsten (Hari Leigh), a blissfully irresponsible register jerk, reigns as the clown princess of the downtown bar scene. Kirsten works ten hours a week at Shakespeare's Pizza and is entirely satisfied with her humble but comfortable world, although she is despised by her long-suffering roommate (Amy Seimetz) and her best friend (Josh Fadem) has come to tire of shepherding Kirsten's drunken antics. While reluctantly reconnecting with an eccentric childhood friend (Susan Burke) who has recently moved to town, an ill-fated nitrous oxide bender unexpectedly forces Kirsten's first baby steps into adulthood.

Sort of like a "Lena Dunham scenario" but way less annoying
8 September 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There are lots of movies about dude slackers, so one with a female protagonist at least has that going for it, though that doesn't exactly qualify as originality, especially since the "girl slob" character is rather overdone. But Hari Leigh's performance is pretty good, and let's be frank, she has a great rack, though unfortunately it isn't put to much use. At least she distracts from the rather thin plot, which is supported by lots of drinking scenes, sarcastic banter, even dream sequences, and of course episodes of "endearing slovenliness". But I give it credit for depicting a loser as a loser, rather than as someone strangely brilliant or surreptitiously blessed by the universe; and though of course the story arc is one of progress, it restrains itself from being anything special or dramatic. I know, not a very glowing review, but it's a mildly amusing story about a woman coming into adulthood that is most importantly not too annoying.
