Both comedy & heart in this but real substance is lacking. I do think it's fun & entertaining but don't expect to be blown away.
14 April 2014 | by See all my reviews

"If everything was great then nothing would be great, nothing would be special." Amy (Roberts) is a naive college grad who dreams of being a poet and being published. After sending samples of her work to every publisher she can think of she is disheartened when they all turn her down. She reluctantly takes a job at an adult sex shop while waiting for her big break. She also meets her idol Rat Billings (Cusack) who turns out not to be what she was hoping for. First and foremost this movie is entertaining and easy to watch. On the other hand though its pretty generic and predictable. Emma Roberts continues to grow as an actress and it's only a matter of time before she wins an Oscar. The movie itself is OK and worth seeing but this is nothing all that special and isn't really one I would watch over again. There is both comedy and heart in this but real substance is lacking. All that said though I do think this is fun and entertaining but don't expect to be blown away. Overall, good and worth seeing but really only once. I give this a B-.
