Absolutely Phenomenal
30 June 2016 | by See all my reviews

I absolutely LOVED this movie. It was a great mix of emotions: touches of sadness with sarcasm and hilarity thrown in at all the right moments. The actors were great and portrayed their characters beautifully. This movie is great for people who love Indie films and do not mind some cursing along the way. This was a heart-felt film that was riddled with sarcasm and hilarious jokes. Some scenes even caused me to laugh so much I would have to pause the movie to collect myself so I could hear the next scene. (not an exaggeration) This movie is definitely worth the watch with its great actors, writing, and overall uplifting feeling. 10/10 would recommend and watch again!!
