Sort of like a "Lena Dunham scenario" but way less annoying, 8 September 2013
Author: timlin-4 from United States

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.
