Likable performance by Olivia Wilde
20 February 2020 | by RogerB-P3RV3See all my reviews

Reclusive collegian Bickford Shmeckler's (Patrick Fugit) book of self-interpretive 'cool ideas' about life and universe is precious to him but when it's stolen, the search for it opens up new world of odd characters, friendship and ultimately love. Likable performance by Olivia Wilde (Sarah) and short running time just about disguises the fact movie is a pretentious claptrap.
