Broke, job hopping, indie musician, Izzy has just discovered that her ex-boyfriend- her soulmate!- got engaged to her ex-best friend, and their party happens to be tonight. Enraged and desperate, Izzy embarks on a quest to charge across Los Angeles and break that up in order to fulfill what she believes to be her destiny - before it's too late.
Thats essentially what this is. I say this. not to call the movie derivative, but to warn you that you should watch this with that expectation. I enjoyed it, because I liked clerks and thats the kind of film this ended up being. You follow izzy along with a cast of amusing but aimless trashy LA millennials on her journey to ruin a wedding. Its even told with a indie punk OST and in 10 or so chapters with breaks just like clerks. Nothing happens the way its supposed to as this is not a julia roberts movie and it just kind of ends. I liked Mackenzie Davis quite a bit. She played the part of a more realistic mess of a pixie dreamgirl well. I was charmed and disgusted, as you should be. The reason I give it something more like a 7 as apposed to a 10 because I feel like the scenes where izzy is having emotional introspective moments she did not emote well in so you're sort of left scrounging to figure out what shes supposed to be feeling and its awkward. That and I agree with others that the ending doesn't fit the film stylistically. The outcome is fine, but the way they get there doesn't fit with the dirty punk visuals and sound to the rest of the movie. That said I'd happily go watch MD in whatever she does next and I'll be open minded towards the writer/directors next project.
