Totally an under rated movie
16 January 2016 | by damian_fraSee all my reviews

I got to know Heather Gordon after seeing this movie. Her acting was ridiculously superb. I can not believe how she is not in many movies. I wish her very best in her acting carrier!! Directing also was excellent. I never found the movie too dragging a bit. Ending was nice and totally unexpected. I enjoyed the satire very much. It was a very very funny movie. It made my day. But at the same time it made me think how people end up on the streets, homeless, humor aside. Their may be a million of stories never being told. David Wilson Barnes was also great in his acting. Actor played the role Charlie was not fully impressive, but not so bad in my opinion. There was a little gap in the logic as to why Clea wanted to sleep with Charlie. Anyway, overall, it's a wonderful movie to watch over a weekend.
