Jessiqa Pace perfect MPDG
5 October 2013 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

Robert (Ari Kanamori) is an affable fellow living in San Francisco. Jenny (Jena Hunt) is his new roommate. After a year together, he doesn't have the money and has to move back in with his parents in Rochester NY. Jenny's relationship with her jealous boyfriend is deteriorating. Robert's developed feelings for her that he has trouble expressing.

Sara (Jessiqa Pace) is the quintessential Manic Pixie Dream Girl dropped into the story to be his cupid for Jenny. She exudes manic energy which is perfect for the role. The only problem is that she looks like Jena Hunt which causes confusion at first. Ari is too stiff as an actor. The movie needs a more emotive lead. The ending is a cop out. The movie is only 83 minutes. They could easily extend it for another 10 minutes to resolve the situation properly.
