Movie Info

Brittany Forgler is a hilarious, friendly, hot mess of a New Yorker who always knows how to have a good time, but at 27, her late-night adventures and early-morning walks-of-shame are starting to catch up to her. When she stops by a Yelp-recommended doctor's office in an attempt to score some Adderall, she finds herself slapped with a prescription she never wanted. Forced to face reality for the first time in a long time, Brittany laces up her Converse and runs one sweaty block. The next day, she runs two. Soon she runs a mile. Brittany finally has direction--but is she on the right path?

  • Colaizzo successfully walks a fine line between inspiration and caution, never presenting Brittany as a patronizing role model for weight loss, nor a clichéd case of inner beauty.

  • Aside from its cast, the winningest aspect of Colaizzo's script is Brittany's emotional arc, which avoids the expected path.

  • A whip-smart comedy that manages to deliver genuinely funny uplift without ever swerving away from its own dark side.

  • The greatest trick of Colaizzo's winning comedy: it doesn't need that cheese factor to inspire plenty of tears and cheers.

  • Humor ends up being replaced by a cloying earnestness as the finish line comes into view. Do the self-deprecating remarks really need to vanish along with the weight? It's hard to imagine why.

    Jan 29, 2019 | Full Review…
  • This terrifically engaging debut feature by playwright Paul Downs Colaizzano is the best kind of "crowdpleaser": one that earns every emotional beat that might seem formulaic in four out of five similar enterprises.
