Nothing terrible but not exciting or gripping at all. A disappointment after Drinking Buddies.
"Let her prove to us that that was a one time thing." Jenny (Kendrick) has just gone through a bad breakup and decides to move in with her brother and his wife Kelly (Lynskey). Almost instantly she causes stress and is not the ideal house guest. Little by little she starts to calm down and even gets Kelly writing again. Jenny continues to struggle with her personal life and it continues to affect everyone around her. After watching and really liking Drinking Buddies I was looking forward to watching this. This movie had a very similar feel to that one as it feels like the dialog was pretty much made up on the spot. Drinking Buddies had something about it that made you really care for the characters and root for them. One of the problems with this movie is that everyone felt flat and I found it hard to make a connection with any of the characters. I'm not saying that this is a bad movie because it was OK but it really seemed to go nowhere. Overall, nothing terrible but not exciting or gripping at all. A disappointment after Drinking Buddies. I give it a B-
