Storyline

This comedy follows two codependent East Village, New York girls, Olivia and Nicole, on the verge of eviction and existential crisis. They're struggling artists, living in a Bohemian apartment. Their electricity has been turned off and they've begun an ill-advised juice fast. To top it all off, they're out of money and too "talented" to come up with the rent. To solve their problems they go to L.A. to visit Nicole's wealthy aunt, Kimberley, the host of a popular reality TV talent show. As Kimberley convinces the girls to audition, the girls struggle to maintain their friendship as Olivia begins to realize she may not be as dependent on Nicole as she once believed.

Well, not trying to be insensitive but watching this one was a huge mistake :P
5 April 2015 | by (Boston, MA, United States) – See all my reviews

well the idea of the movie is not clear.

The plot is vague and shattered all over the place .... just some scenes rolling over two girls living like semi-Homeless by choice !!,, or is it about life !! all starts with troubles of their apartment !!

It's suppose to be a Comedy/Drama but i kinda didn't get or see that !! The movie gives few bits of comedy when Will Forte and Megan Mullally appeared.

The stroyline and the events are so still ,, no ups or downs .. it's not that tempting to keep on watching you just wait for the moment that attract you but it never comes.

thou in the second part of the movie got awkwardly somehow funny but god it was still weird :P

The casting ,, well i couldn't really judge the cast .. i mean of the two leads "Nicole"and"Olivia" are suppose to act this way of laziness, careless, cleansing and all about the soul then they did a good job but still it didn't help the movie in any way.

Overall,, the writers should'v done so much more work to make it a real comedy-Drama movie ,, now it's just A movie .. no genre is included.
