Predictable and uneven - intelligent and funny one minute, a bit clumsy and falling flat the next, though not overly cringeworthy. On balance it's above average fun, just not brilliant, as it could have been if more consistent.
There were some funny parts but for the most part you just want to throttle the main character for being such an idiot the whole time. Also, it was filmed here in Winnipeg so locals get the double laugh of seeing all the places they tried to pass off as Toronto.
I thought this film was going to be "OK" but it was pretty good! It has some funny parts, the story makes sense, and the acting was pretty good. It was a fun watch...are there better movies in this genre? Of course! But it was still pretty solid overall, a nice pleasant surprise.
For a Canadian comedy set & shot in Toronto, I was surprised to find myself laughing and enjoying the film. It has a very "Canadian" feel but is pretty amusing with a good premise. Give it a try if feeling adventurous!
I've seen this twice and it still seems like a very funny film about people who cannot or who are scared to express who they are and what they want. It skirts ordinary life in the way only the self absorbed can manage and thus gets a high mark from me.
It was a very fair movie. The concept and idea was good, but they really could have executed it better with some more laughs involved. It became too crude with some necessarily over the top scenes where they just weren't needed. In general it just tried way too hard.
