Really Good
9 December 2013 | by See all my reviews

I did not know what to expect when i got to the theatre. And assumed it was going to be a typical chick flick I was going to have to suffer through, however I'm glad to say my assumptions were wrong! Jesse McCormick did an outstanding job in her directing debut. It was indeed a story focusing on the relationship between two women done in a way that was totally accessible to both men and women. I laughed out loud more times than I can count, and the acting was suburb. The movie felt quite real to me and the relationships between the characters felt genuine. Don't let the trailer fool you this is not just another "girls" movie. I would recommend it to anyone wanting to kick back and be thoroughly entertained for 87 minutes of great filmmaking!
