Quotes

Owen: I'm mysterious and busy.
[change of topic]
Owen: You mind giving me a little another pour?
Matt: Sure bro!
[gets up and starts to pour in]
Matt: Yes, sir.
Owen: Nope, you failed the test. Mysterious and busy test, you failed it. You failed it. I *literally* put it right here so I have *access* to it, so I can just reach and pour.
[smiling]
Owen: Would you like some?
Matt: No, I'm fine. Thank you.

trying to be 'real'
4 January 2019 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

Hallie (Emma Roberts) and Owen (Michael Angarano) are a couple in L.A. Their best friends Willa (Dree Hemingway) and Matt (Patrick Gibson) get together and start dating. The four twentysomethings have different levels of commitment expectations which causes simmering conflicts.

It starts like a fluffy cute relationship indie. It tries to be 'real' with their relationships. It has potential but it does not elevate the drama. I wish that Willa would actually cheat on Matt and Hallie is forced to hide the secret. It needs something to heighten the drama. The characters are set for something but the plot is holding back. The story is being too 'real' where the couple are struggling due to nothing more than themselves. It leaves with a flat ending that does not wrap up or break apart.
