Accurate portrayal of dysfunctional Millenial relationships
Verified purchase
I've been in this relationship. My friends have been in this relationship. It's the kind where you're young and can't see beyond the hope that you can make dysfunction functional again despite a clash between the two, whether from personality or differences in viewpoints or an undeniable case of being out of sync. So you argue. You love each other and have adored each other at times, but there's something that doesn't feel right even though you try to convince yourself otherwise, like a burgeoning unhappiness that you try to push aside but that emerges anyway.

This movie hit close to home, and contrary to other (more poor) reviews, I found it relatable and an accurate depiction of Millenial relationships. I thought Emma Roberts' performance was actual more believable and realistic than other roles she's taken on, not at all overacting. She was simply depicting a young individual who's grappling with a relationship in which she finds herself unhappy but can't entirely pinpoint why. The other actors too were strong.

The last shot in the film is the most complex and artistic and something I wish the director had employed more of throughout the film. The movie also went a little slow, considering it's only an hour and a half long. As a whole, however, it was a poignant and thoughtful slice of life.

Typical and Bittersweet.

For all the technology, nobody talks anymore. It's all one liners, or how little characters in a text you can fit. That (doesn't) work on phones or insta or any of those garbage social sites. You cannot read TONE into written word, esp if you are limited and nobody wants to bother to read past a sentence or two. It's completely effed up all the young peoples' communication skills. It's...it's dreadful. Truly. I see my own adult daughter and this man-child who: For all the TIME they've spent together, can NOT manage a simple conversation without a problem. Very much like the main couple.

Oh right yeah: All the boxes are ticked. Which TRULY pisses me off. Can we mix the formula, PLEASE??? I'm sick to near death of the 'inclusive' black male with white woman...just for the sake of saying, "Ok, we got the one in there, next..." to the lesbian scene. The instant I saw an Asian woman, I thought she would HAVE to be the lesbian. Because that's a double box checked, dontcha know! (gag me with a ginsu)

Anyway, I think the movie screams volumes (paradoxically) about the lack of communication, and the absolute horror of not even knowing how to handle a sentence in verbal form. Everything must MEAN something, so everyone's reading a lot of nonsense into each others' EVERYTHING; it's utter chaos...oh good grief, just put the bloody phones down already. People assume the worst from ANY scenario (or they are a bubble head in denial, much like a character Emma Roberts played in Adult World). Why must it be those two extremes...? Oh right. Because nobody actually speaks anymore and cannot articulate without complete deconstruction.

I've got news for the young folks: Time is short and precious. Try to be aware of this when engaging with others. Nobody under the age of 40 will understand till it's too late. (If they are like these characters.)

That is what I got out of this movie. I really love Emma and I like Angarano. I thought it would be good, even hopeful but alas: It is NOT. It's not a fun nor funny romp, it's actually incredibly sad.

I Like Emma Roberts. After Watching This Movie, Not So Sure Anymore
Verified purchase
I like Emma Roberts. Or maybe I should say I used to like her until I watched this movie. I know she's acting, but she was so annoying in this part. And her voice, and her hyper-acting. Big turnoff.

Aside from that, the movie was just plain boring. Nothing of interest. Nothing happening. Maybe this is just the way life is for millennials...I don't know. If that's the case, I'm sorry for them.

Not one interesting character in the movie, and not one scene that stood out.

Even the sex was boring. Yes, movie sex is almost always boring, but this was worse than usual.

I wonder what they were thinking while shooting this thing.

I love Angarano...that's all I can say
Verified purchase
I basically rented this because I love Michael Angarano. But seeing his butt was the only good thing about it. The story was weak, plot was meh, and the only acting that was worth seeing was his. He's truly a star. I want to see this Brooklyn home boy in more substantial stuff!

an oft' told tale
Verified purchase
a story that has been told many times and will be told again and again. however, this brought two actors who show such particular talents for that old magic....acting. dree hemingway and Patrick Gibson played the so-called '2nd leads' in this film and just stole it from the whole cast. two actors who radiated real reelness in that you never 'caught' them acting. it's great to see new young people show such promise. otherwise, I found the film watchable and honest.

Boring

I actually pursued getting my money back from Amazon on this one. Terrible! The actors have zero chemistry. The story and characters were very flat and uninteresting. I felt like the movie was just a vehicle for a bunch of hipster music tracks.
