Quotes

Ramsey: There are lot of moments in life and i didn't know Lumpy for very long.Most of you probably had more time with him than I did but,just because dying in a cactus was Lumpy's last moment doesn't mean it is the most important one. I love my friend and the moments we had. I love Lumpy.

surprising
25 January 2014 | by (France) – See all my reviews

This is not a comedy. Whoever billed it as such is an idiot. People will be disappointed and some of the reviews I've read were very negative as a result. This is in fact a very fresh and surprising drama about people and the secrets they keep and the sometimes strange ways in which they meet and find love. I was totally surprised at the ending and I felt a definite feel good rush. It was perhaps a bit contrived, but I didn't care. I was too busy just feeling good. A great piece of film making. The acting is superb throughout, especially the young female lead. And the last time I saw the male lead was in 'Live free or die hard' where he was a likable hacker. Well he is likable here too. All round high quality human drama. Loved it.
