19 May 2014 | by See all my reviews

Given the current IMDb rating for this film, I had mediocre expectations prior to watching it. In fact, I almost didn't...

I thought it was going to be somewhat similar to "Legally Blonde", "Saved", "The Clique", and other movies I really felt were unbearable to watch.

I expected average acting, a cheesy plot, a couple of forced & corny scenes (that's awkward for the viewer), tacky wardrobe, and unrealistic chapters that would have given me the perfect chance to grab some snacks from the fridge (movies of this kind usually have those moments, right?). But, what finally convinced me to give it my time of day was its line-up of really raving reviews. They got me curious...

Well, let me just say: this movie is FUN, ADORABLE, and RIDICULOUS! Just so you know, the moment it ended, I literally replayed it & rewatched it right there and then because I had so much fun the first time.

The humor was natural & freakishly hilarious, and the acting was so good to back it up! I loved it from beginning to end, there was not one boring scene. Everyone in the movie did so well, even the extra small parts! And I absolutely loved every moment with the Queen Bs, as well as the gays. I was just laughing my butt off!

If you read the synopsis, it doesn't quite showcase the movie's strengths, and the plot doesn't sound interesting when read either - but you have to look past that, and WATCH THE MOTION PICTURE.

G.B.F. executed its story in such a CUTE, FUN, non-patronizing, and modern way that leaves the viewer comfortable & completely immersed.

G.B.F. is like a mix of "Clueless", "Mean Girls", "Sex and The City", "Gossip Girl", and "Bridesmaids", but put all of their best parts together, and then add a little bit of FIERCENESS to that equation.
