    Among the more enjoyable filmgoing experiences of late. Witty, original dialogue and subtlely charming performances from a fine ensemble cast.

    Loved the beginning. Top notch acting. The writing was brilliant, intelligent and at the same time incredibly charming. What?s not to like?

  1. If there is a delicate story of forgiveness, friendship and family buried somewhere in Erica Beeney's script, Potelle and Rankin haven't managed to find it under the throes of empty rebellion and painless triumph.

    LaBeouf somehow manages to turn Kelly's self-centered behavior and irritating character quirks into a sympathetic lead, and the well-written script by newcomer Erica Beeney brings a lot of humor to some very touching moments.
  3. Surprisingly sweet and smart... LaBeouf does an excellent job, and the talented Beeney is one to watch.
