I really liked this movie--I had to watch it twice. I originally intended to only watch the first 20 minutes and then save the rest for later, but it got started right away with lots of silly moments, had to go ahead at watch the whole thing. The story was super cute and funny, and poked a lot of fun at real relationships--both with lovers, as well as with friends and parents. Obviously with a rom-com you're expecting to go in a certain direction, but that is part of the deal!! I thought the cast was fantastic, and I'd love to see Aubrey Dollar in more movies. The only drawbacks had to do with suspending your disbelief about time and commitments... and would grown up people really do that?? I feel like in real life the risk would just be too obvious, but that's why we like stories--we can 'experience' things that are a little unrealistic in the name of imagination and fun.
