Is this movie a five star blockbuster? Not really. Is it better then the last movie I paid to see in the theater... 100%. I gave it five stars because it's good, probably four stars. I also wanted to counter the 1 star reviews.
The acting is good. The camera work, sound quality and all that stuff is on a professional level.. above something you'd see on made for cable movie, not as good as say "I Feel Pretty."
On the third viewing I actually picked up some jokes that I missed the first two times. I also picked up on a plot point that I also missed the first couple times I watched it. I hate not being able to reveal what I figured out. It's not like the Sixth Sense or something but when it hit me, it really hit me. Reading some of the other reviews (not by my X) I can see that they also didn't "get it" and watched the movie like I did the first time.
I don't know if I will watch it again, but I might.
*an independent film that tries very hard to stand alone on its own, without bowing to the larger, big-budget audience.
*the writing is raw, raunchy--it has a very Blake-Edwards style humor, so if you're not into that, you probably won't be into this.
*the cast does an excellent job--especially the older guy from Office Space.
*there are some funny one-liners here.
Room to improve:
*the way the story was told could have been improved. I feel like there's this really cute story that they were trying to tell, but they weren't prepared to tell it the way it deserved to be told. The story ends up suffering when things are rushed.
Anyway, my 2 cents: it's worth watching if you've got the time.
Luckily I have prime video and this didn't cost me a cent. I wouldn't burn $3 to watch it.
Overall with all the cons, the movie is still entertaining and pretty honest to itself. It isn't going for over the top performances or antics to make itself stand out. It is just a low budget movie about subtlety and subtext. The emotional progression of things seem rushed and exaggerated but to aide the plot it is forgivable. The very last scene is odd but honest to things in keeping a very impromptu love story in perspective but I wish it had shown a more optimistic view to balance everything out.
Just watch, appreciate it for what it is, and just remember, it isn't Hemingway.
