love it.
21 April 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I knew absolutely nothing about this movie. I saw a free screening, and I loved it. I Was also pleasantly surprised along the way to see people i like, like nick offerman and molly shannon. the main kid i remembered as being alright so when i saw him i thought 'cool cool....' Earl was fantastic i thought and stole every scene. so many things there are that i love about the movie. i like that it didn't hit certain area(s?) that one might expect them to his in such a movie.

olivia cooke was grand grand.

yadda yadda, i love it, can't wait to own it.

blergydergh.
