Heightened in a good sense
13 October 2013 | by See all my reviews

This is a really nice film with some great female roles in it. While I'm not an expert on women (most men aren't), I thought this was a nice depiction of living with your friends in one home. Growing up, but still wanting someone to depend on. Being adult, but not taking responsibilities for your actions. We've all been there. Is it funny though? That depends on your sense of humor.

It's nice to see the girls having fun (and sorrow) with the trouble of life (or "l!fe" as spelled in the title). Great acting then and some nice story development help this movie be above average and if you let it, it will entertain you.
