Life Partners full of real life fun that appeals to men & women equally. Super fun!

See this movie! I thought I was suffering burnout from ROMCOM's until "Life Partners" reinvigorated the genre with a modern take. If you enjoy "Modern Family", you will enjoy this. It is a story of 29 yr old best friends, one straight, one lesbian & what happens when one, inevitability finds love first. I'm all too familiar with this concept, having had roommates who moved on ahead of me. For one, the 24/7 benefits of support changes only in gender, & for the other, life becomes a temporary vacuum.

Leighton Meester looks like a young Winona Ryder & plays the more interesting character. That said, the two main characters really sell the friendship with very real, well written dialog performed with mercurial back and forth. The movie is hilarious & showcases dramatic personality conflicts in the dating world and outside the best friend relationship. I liked that it didn't focus on the stereotypes of lesbian & straight dating so much as the commonalities. In truth, the experiences deal with more similar issues than unique.

Each character undergoes a positive transformation in their life which most will identify with as a part of maturation. This in no way is to suggest the movie is too serious. Most of the movie is pure fun as you date vicariously through the characters, privy to their pet peeves & post- date autopsies. The movie captures the finer parts of the twenties & is surprisingly gender neutral in it's appeal. I highly recommend it as a fresh story about familiar topics for anyone in their twenties, or just wants to relive them, while having a great time. Excellent movie! I rate it 8/10 stars for the script, the actresses, the believability & ability to engage men & women alike.
