    This isn’t a movie. It’s a MySpace page.

    Unbearably twee mockumentary.
  3. A cute movie, a little too cute and a little too aware of its own cuteness.

    I went into the movie a fairly big fan of Charlyne Yi, but by the end I truthfully wanted to kill myself. This movie is incredibly pretentious, and I totally agree with the reviewer who said that this movie is too aware of its own cuteness. The movie drags on what feels like an hour too long, which is distressing, considering it's only an hour and a half. I'm okay with movies posing questions but not fully answering them and having the audience reflect on the situations given them, but this movie really had nothing to present. It was mindless, pointless, and I'm utterly depressed I will never get my time back again! Full Review »

    I was really looking forward to this movie, and I must say, I was disappointed. The over all choppy context and lack of keeping a story line gets old quick. I also never felt like I really was given a chance to get to know the characters, which is always a pretty big downer. Not to say there aren't any cute, funny,genuinely good moments, but that's just the problem:they're only moments, and they're pretty out of place. A lot of the movie also relies on the quirkiness of the two leads, a lot of times it was like, "Well, this scene is getting dull, let's just get a laugh at how awkward Micheal Cera is." It might not be a waste of time to see this movie, but it was a let down for me. Full Review »

    We went to see this movie as an antidote to District 9 and the incredibly violent previews that preceded it. We enjoyed it. Not a work of genius but gentle, sweet, with some good moments. Got a little tired of Charlene Yi after a while. It helps to enjoy Michale Cera. If you don't like him, you probably won't enjoy this movie. But it is better than many reviewers are saying.
