predictable story, bad acting
12 September 2015 | by LucyBonetteSee all my reviews

This is just a very slow movie, with an ending that you can predict right from the start. The actors are not very convincing and nothing really interesting happens. All the characters do is drink and party, but even that is not fun to watch. The hipster friends/colleagues are just downright annoying to watch, but I guess that makes them realistic.

The only positive I can think of is that you could turn this into a drinking game, for every time somebody says "what the f?!". That seems to be the only line, and pretty much every character says it all the time. Probably true to life, but a bit boring to watch.
