Storyline

Meeting your girlfriend's family for the first time can be tough. Planning to propose at her family's annual Christmas dinner - until you realize that they don't even know she's gay - is even harder. When Abby (Kristen Stewart) learns that Harper (Mackenzie Davis) has kept their relationship a secret from her family, she begins to question the girlfriend she thought she knew.

Harper Sucks
1 December 2020 | by kristaholmesfbSee all my reviews

I watched this movie for Dan Levy, and he did not disappoint. He is a national treasure and deserved more screen time. Kristen Stewart wasn't as bad as I thought she would be. Aubrey Plaza was a delight. I love the rest of the cast, but their characters were annoying. Harper was an absolutely horrible girlfriend, and I was actually rooting for Abby and Riley to end up together instead. Overall, not that bad of a movie because I'm just happy to finally see an LGBTQ Christmas rom-com, but this could have been done so much better.
