So much potential, movie could have been better
8 August 2020 | by cseabhiSee all my reviews

Well the back to school scenes, made me nostalgic a bit. My expectations went way higher. I thought, maybe this movie could be a great mood lifter for me. But the story seems to get drifted away. Thankfully I ended up liking the movie.

Kris Rey have done a good job, but the movie demanded more. 'I Used to go here' lacked the depth and impact but I liked the self discovery path the movie has shown and the authentic story. Kris has lots of potential and this movie shows this.

Loved Gillian Jacobs in the movie.
