Real life,explained
18 August 2010 | by cristy_laur_snSee all my reviews

I saw the trailer of this movie,caught my eye because i thought it will be a cheap,funny movie,without so much "fireworks" . But i was pleasantly surprised by the way the characters make you see and understand real life, they go through all sort of situations so you could learn something from them, and be prepared if it happens to you. Its not going to blow you away, but at the end it will feel like they are some friends of yours, and they really exist.Acceptably funny, a little sad at some times, and i'm sure the time i spent watching it isn't a loss. Don't judge it before you get a chance to watch it, its not a big budget movie, and was never intended, and that makes it better.
