Trivia

A restaurant scene early in the movie was filmed inside The Diamond. Later in the movie, they sat in vehicle outside The Diamond, but the restaurant scene that followed was not inside The Diamond, but rather appeared to be inside a Diner called Mattie's (which, unfortunately, is now gone).

Goofs

The MRI machine in Eloise's home would have pulled the bicycle and other nearby ferromagnetic metal items towards it's extremely powerful magnet in a dangerous fashion at the moment it was turned on. Even non-ferromagnetic metals can interact with an MRI ( such as her earrings) in such a way that the MRI image produced would likely be distorted. See more »

Good Enough.
1 May 2016 | by (Philippines) – See all my reviews

I watched this film with no expectations at all. First Im not familiar with the actors, and second I haven't even watched the trailer. I don't know why I watched. So, definitely this is not one of the best films out there. But the movie's worth your 2 hour-sitting on your sofa or lying down on your bed.

The story was beautifully told. The leads, Mickey Rourke and Nat Wolff were amazing. Looking forward to Nat's in more movies. The phasing of the story on the first half was a bit slow which I think made my 3% off from my rating.

Watch this when you're in a good mood or just wanna kill time. :)
