Former gymnastics Bronze Medalist Hope Ann Greggory (Melissa Rauch) has been living off her celebrity status in her hometown of Amherst, Ohio, though she is reduced to going through the mail her mailman father delivers for spending money. When her former coach Pavleck (Christine Abrahamsen) suddenly commits suicide, a letter arrives addressed to Hope stating that if she can guide Pavleck's best student, a young gymnastics star named Maggie Townsend (Haley Lu Richardson) to the Olympics in Toronto, she will receive a $500,000 inheritance..
Park Lanes is a real bowling alley located on Park Ave adjacent to Main Street (also depicted in the film) in Amherst, Ohio. See more »
When Hope and Maggie are in the car for the first time, eating at a food stand, Hope Says "Always listen to Avril Lavigne..." but the CD shown is incorrect. It is actually Robyn's debut album "Robyn Is Here" which was released in 1997 while Avril Lavigne's debut CD "Let Go" was released in 2002. To further the time line, the songs "My Happy Ending" and "Freak Out" that are played in the movie, are from Avril Lavigne's second album "Under My Skin" which was released in 2004. See more »
Mountain Dew, large.
Did I say diet?
Sorry. Most girls order diet. Okay. That comes to $9.30.
Oh... no, it doesn't.
No, no, no. She's on the house. Don't you know who this is?
You tell him, Tony.
Check the wall, son.
Yeah. Check the wall, son.
You used to be way skinnier.

As someone who has actually seen this movie and liked it, I feel a responsibility in taking it under my wing to protect it from some of the unfair criticism it's received. I think some people don't want Melissa Rausch to succeed because she's already a wildly popular TV star and they are punishing her. Some people are actually delighted that it's doing poorly at the box office.
I don't say this movie is a 10 (how many movies are) but its certainly enjoyable and original. While you can label it a comedy,it's more appreciated as a character study of Hope Greggory, a former bronze medal gymnast who had to cut her career short due to an injury and has put her life on hold ever since. I'm sorry if this has turned into more of a rant instead of a review but I'm just not understanding why it's being panned when this is a pretty good movie. Melissa is very talented and versatile and has a great career ahead of her after Big Bang Theory.
