Trivia

Sierra's parents are played by actors who famously starred in 80s films also about teenage misfits; Lea Thompson in Back to the Future (1985) and Alan Ruck in Ferris Bueller's Day Off (1986). See more »

Goofs

While Jamey (Noah Centineo) is playing games with his brother, he has the XBox controller on his lap. On that specific controller, the light would be on if the console itself was on. The light is off when it's on his lap. Meaning they cannot be playing video games while the XBox or his controller is off. See more »

Quotes

Jamey: For the record, I think roses are the bitchy super-models of flowers.

Only for Noah
9 September 2018 | by vinitavkumbharSee all my reviews

The movie fails to make any impact whatsoever. The only reason I am giving it 4 starts is for Noah Centineo.
