I almost didn't watch this movie; what a shame that would've been. Kristen is nothing less than magnificent! I loved her on SNL and worried about her when she left. She's so much more than her characters there... and they were excellent. This movie was like a good book you can't put down. Real people, dealing with real challenges, but willing to step out and take a chance on the possibility of something better. (Similar to what Kristen did by leaving SNL). And the actors are convincing - especially Kristen. This is one of the best movies I've seen in a very long time. Thank you Kristen for leaving SNL. I'll be watching a lot more of you. :)
