Love this one..
25 December 2012 | by See all my reviews

My girlfriend and I hardly ever agree on movies to watch, but thankfully a friend of ours recommended this one to us. Both she and I loved it. I don't want to spoil anything, but the plot is cleverly written, taking some interesting turns, and the witty banter keeps the whole thing lighthearted. Mamet and Han have excellent on-screen chemistry, and they developed their characters surprisingly well. These two actually have another film coming out soon (The Last Keepers -- currently in post-production) that we're looking forward to checking out because we were so impressed with this one. All in all a great movie for guys and girls alike.
