Romcom? boring
8 August 2013 | by sebasrsSee all my reviews

I didn't expect to find a deep story though I was hoping to get a fun movie, especially given the fact that the cast included two very likable actresses, Wilde and Kendrick, unfortunately this has to be some of their worst performances.

There is no plot or any character development, there is not a single good joke in fact, I didn't even chuckle once. I guess that the whole point of this flick was to depict the life of two friends who work at a brewing company, and let me tell you there's nothing exciting in their world, probably your own life it's way more interesting than what this movie is trying to depict.

I'm not a romantic-comedy hater, I love movies and I like to enjoy all kind of genres, so let me be clear with this, there are good romcom movies there are also bad romcom and then there are this type of movies that drives you just to nowhere.

I really don't recommend this movie, there's nothing here to enjoy, there is no really a story been told.
