A bit frustrating
29 May 2012 | by (US) – See all my reviews

The movie starts well and the setting (Tri-State area, I think) was good. It was refreshing to see a movie about working class people that wasn't ABOUT being working class. But the dialog after a while just became too contrived and over written. Elizabeth Moss is good at playing a slightly dim person (spacey might be a better word for her), but the script just gets stereotypical and dull. People start saying wacky things that no one would EVER say in real life, just in movie life. It ruins the realistic vibe. Okay, two more lines! IMDb likes filler apparently. Oksy the two leads have a nice chemistry together and decent singing voices.
