an enjoyable movie
13 June 2013 | by See all my reviews

The acting is fairly well done, the story line is basic but well done and enough to keep most entertained. Its a fairly basic story about boy wants a girl that doesn't know he exists. So him and his buddies hatch a plan to for him to get her and she finds out about it when its too late. Regardless, its still quite enjoyable and is close to as realistic as i've seen in most movies of this type. It goes through the usual motions of this genre. Some may find it a bit over the top or unrealistic but being an IT guy help me relate to the central character(s). There are some serious parts and some very funny parts, the soundtrack was great, and should be a generally enjoyable movie for all except the most critical of movie goers.
