Chloë Grace Moretz,

After an extremely regrettable one night stand, two strangers wake up to find themselves snowed in after sleeping through a blizzard that put all of Manhattan on ice. They're now trapped together in a tiny apartment, forced to get to know each other way more than any one night stand should. Written by
Thhis movie, although obviously not the greatest of the year, knows what it is, and it fully at ease with it. As a fellow young-adult going through tribulations on the love front, I did feel a connection with the characters. Miles Teller confirms that he has potential, and the other actors do their jobs, without being amazing (s.a. Scott Mescudi, who is apparently attempting a reconversion from rap to acting. He isn't bad, but he isn't quite there yet, and he still surfs on his fame to get his roles IMO). OK directing. Some funny moments, and an (expected and expectable) heart-warming ending. I recommend watching this if you are in the same situation as the characters, ergo stuck with a chick/guy you like on a snowy day.
