It does not really help give understanding to those who are not internet savvy to who annon are.
(fr) wrote: Cute, but questionable message. Spoilers ahead...............I don't know that I really liked that a strong young woman who has worked hard and wants a good future for herself is torn down as selfish and shallow. Clearly it's more noble to be poor and want nothing but true love?! That aside, the deathbed scene also had me scratching my head. Okay, so she made some poor decisions in her personal life. That leads to her dying alone. However, it's not specified what she is dying of, except that she is young. This is the wake up call she needs to turn her life around. So she won't die. Okay, someone please explain to me how choosing a different partner keeps you safe from whatever horrible illness struck her down young?Unless it's an std from her unfaithful ex, though implications are, she already slept with him, so even so, if she caught an std, she's already got it at this point.(and, honestly, I don't think that is where they were going anyhow with that, although, we do have a modern day "Scrooge" plot here with a ghost who has genital herpes, so anything is possible!).It's not all bad. Ashley Benson is fine as an alcoholic deceased starlet. I didn't find Christina too convincing, but she's okay, it is only a fluff piece after all. Chad is horrible. Wooden and no chemistry whatsoever. I certainly wouldn't have wanted to pay money to see it, and the plot is old and tired, but it is December, so forgivable to watch a bit of crap this time of year!

It's a simple and sweet story presenting the relationships between friends and couples, how they deal with the little but significant hurdles they face along the way. It is not too emotional or feely, but it has just enough to put a smile on your face here and there. Good work by Josh Radnor, this being his debut feature as a Director. I liked his other movie "Liberal Arts" as well.

(ag) wrote: This movie reminds me of both She's Come Undone and White Oleander novels. It's a common coming of age story when the teenage girl just wants a little attention and a father figure in her life and ends up in an inapprporiate relationship. It was a really good movie but too depressing for me.

(fr) wrote: Not so bad as I expected - the movie does a reboot on the original 90's Leprechaun series of movies, but with a darker version of it. The story is ok, effects ok, actings bad - but there is enought tension to keep you watching what happens. 4,0/10
