Storyline

Twenty-one year old Sammy Smalls has self-esteem issues. She hides behind her frumpy clothes and the slight limp she sustained from a childhood illness. She works in a dead end job as an undercover shoplifter detector at a Big Apple Food Town, her boss Dirk who has his own brand of vigilante justice for the shoplifters. And she considers her parents, although loving in their own unique way, not good role models for her. She doesn't like people touching her in an emotional manner, the ticklish feeling she gets from such being yet another thing behind which she hides. As a result, she is sexually inexperienced. However, she does have a crush on Eugene Zaslavsky, a busker musician who performs outside her supermarket. Each considers the other a friend, but their attempt to take the friendship into a sexual realm results in utter disaster. Although they vow to remain friends, Eugene won't sleep with her again due to her sexual inexperience. So Sammy goes on an expedition for advice and ... Written by Huggo

Cristin Milioti interesting
29 May 2016 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

Sammy Smalls (Cristin Milioti) works undercover security for a grocery store. Dirk (Will Sasso) is her vigilante boss. Her parents (Sheila McCarthy, Kevin McDonald) are over-protective. She is 21, alone, and dresses like a boy. She has a limp and body issues from earlier cancer. She falls for musician Eugene Zaslavsky (Mark Rendall) but their attempt at sex results in her uncontrollable laughter. He wants to be just friends with the sexually inexperienced Sammy. She decides to gain more experience and work on her ticklish problem.

This is a quirky indie trying to play with some inappropriate fun. It's not really that funny but Cristin Milioti is awkwardly charming. The story is quirky but there are few laughs. The story gets a bit awkward at times. Cristin's big doe eyes and bewildered mannerisms keep this interesting. This needs work to get more jokes into the script.
