Full of laughs and also makes you think
22 September 2016 | by penink-13398See all my reviews

I was so excited to see this film at the Toronto filmfest last week. You might enjoy it because it's very funny - a hyper verbal genius, 19 and a year out of college, taking on the hypocrisies of adulthood, and sparring with therapist (Nathan Lane) and some other interesting characters. Some of the jokes were dry and some more obvious. But there's a lot to make you think besides just laughing. I enjoyed seeing 19-yar-old Carrie's beliefs challenged in so many different ways. She sets out to expose a few "cheaters" in society but is surprised to find the situations not as black and white as she thought. Isn't that what we all learn as we grow? Ultimately she does the right thing, but it's not always easy. I am leaving out the spoilers but I just want to say that you will be surprised by a few of the twists and turns. I haven't read the book it's based on so I can't compare it to that, but I will say that it's funny, charming and I LOVE the actors. I think this movie will do well with an audience like me, recent college grads and anyone in 30s/40s/50s questioning where they fit into the world.. Can't wait till its in theaters so I can bring friends!
