Terrible writing, pretty good acting
12 May 2018 | by eemaileSee all my reviews

Human beings do not on any level act like this. Audiences dont laugh at terrible jokes and anothers tragedy just because its passed off with blase. Unsurprisingly Ed Helms and Amanda Seyfried both do a great job of representing sweet, out of touch and stressed "nobodys" but the writing here is horrible, not cute just awkward lines just make them into expository dolls despite their best efforts. Im surprised this movie was made but arts a risk and Im sure everyone gave it a college try. Lots of good qualities.
