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 and Alan Ruck in Ferris Bueller's Day Off. 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

Dan: I have to find a story for my vlog. If I don't get into any college, I can sell my vlog to Buzzfeed or Vice.
Sierra: Or you can bank on your straight As.
Dan: What is this, the 90s? I've got to create Google 2.0, or swim backstroke while playing the violin at the Olympics. Or create a new species of cat while volunteering in a third world country at the same time.

Awful movie - how can i route for someone doing something so awful
8 September 2018 | by rkelliott-653-550617See all my reviews

I really hated this film. I get what they were going for but it was terrible. She lies pretty much the whole way through, kissing him without his consent. cat fishing doesn't make a romantic storyline. just horrible through and through.
