(This review may contain spoilers).
This was a movie I found really entertaining to watch, despite the strong levels of adult content and some quite graphic scenes.
It was interesting to see the stark differences in personality between Amy and Kim. I did like the fact that they came across as real sisters… with arguments, but also support between them. And it was also good to see the different ways they viewed their dad.
There was a lot of adult humour in this movie. What was good was the fact there were also quite a few serious moments here as well.
It was easy to like Amy, despite her not being the kind of person I’d find easy to relate to in reality. Although a lot of her issues were ones she needed to deal with herself, I could understand the rut she ultimately found herself in.
I really didn’t like Amy’s boss, Dianne, at all. I thought she was really unprofessional and manipulative. I’m guessing she wasn’t supposed to be liked, though, so I’m sure that works out.
I did think that a lot of the supporting characters weren’t expanded upon in the way they could have been. Amy and Aaron both had a lot of depth to them, but apart from Kim, a lot of the other characters seemed like caricatures.
I did like the romance. I particularly liked the opportunity to hear Amy’s internal monologue… especially when there’s the montage of her and Aaron together.
I did think it took a while for the conflict in the relationship to show up, even though there were a couple of false starts. While I could see Aaron’s point about certain things, there was one aspect in particular I felt he was being unreasonable on. At the same time, it was good to see all of the things Amy had kept bottled up coming out.
This movie was entertaining and very amusing to watch in places. There were a number of cringe-worthy scenes, but I felt the movie did stay true to the characters up till the end. There was a lot of adult content… but if you like that, this movie is worth giving a try.
