Quotes

Carter Davis: I was never close to my dad. Can't even remember the last time he called me on my birthday. He kinda always forgets.
Tree Gelbman: Yeah. I'm supposed to be with mine. I don't know, I couldn't bear the thought of sitting through another uncomfortable celebration while we both pretend that everything is awesome.
Carter Davis: Are you closer with your mom?
Tree Gelbman: Was.
Carter Davis: What happened?
[Tree does not answer, just looks sadly]
Carter Davis: Oh, she...
Tree Gelbman: Yeah. Three years ago.
Carter Davis: I'm sorry. That-that sucks.
Tree Gelbman: Yeah. We actually share the same birthday, though.

I really enjoyed it
4 January 2018 | by olivermahlmannSee all my reviews

As a fan of Groundhog Day, Final Destination and Edge of Tomorrow, I was surprised how much I liked it. It was just well done and it worked on all levels. I watch a lot of movies and hate most of them, but this one worked for me.
