Storyline

When May, an OCD nurse with a compulsive swearing problem, goes to Los Angeles to retrieve bone marrow for a critical transplant, she runs straight into the past she has been hiding from. Flustered, May loses the cooler and must enlist the help of the one person she had hoped never to see again; the man she abandoned four years ago. With less than 24 hours to find the cooler, they embark on a journey through the streets of Los Angeles. Past and present collide, the closer they get, the closer they come to finding the truth of what went so terribly wrong between them. Written by Anonymous

Great Movie
30 April 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie it was fantastic. Much better than I was expecting. Jim Parsons is great, The main actress was great. The only time I've ever seen her before was in The Dark Knight. When she played one of the crooked cops. She really did a fantastic job. I would like to see her in more roles. It was an interesting Idea from start to finish. I really liked the homeless woman. I thought it was a nice touch.

Over all the movie was very enjoyable. I would probably watch it again, although I very rarely do that. If you see that this movie is playing near you, be sure to check it out. I saw it at SXSW, so I am not sure where it is going to be playing. I hope it comes back to Austin so I can go with my friends.

I gave it a 9 out of ten because I never give ten out of tens, but it is really great.
