Do not waste your money. This "movie" is just one big infomercial for her seminars and books. She is a self-aggrandizing, millennial who thinks she can help us reach our goals and "be like her" because she's been through therapy and has listened to a lot of podcasts. Total pop pysch diva. I really wanted to leave 15 minutes in. And, I want my money back. By the way, she has no college degree nor a degree in psychology. You would be FAR better off watching Jordan Peterson's youtube videos, or better yet, doing his self-authoring course to set your goals and relive/get past your past. His course is incredibly cheap at $29:50; and oh yeah, he actually knows what he's talking about and has researched these topics heavily as well as treated hundreds of people through his therapy practice. It is sad how many women are so weak that they allow people like Rachel Hollis to prey upon their frailties. And the finale of her seminar--cringe--how narcissistic can you be?
.I thought the concept was great, but the execution was a bit off. Some of the characters were stereotypical and over the top-like the publisher and girlfriend (wow-so bad they were distracting). The acting was spotty--I liked Kevin Sorbo but his initial monologue was overacted. The script was too formulaic to be believable. While the movie moved too quickly with a chain of events at times, it still felt sluggish. The ending was maudlin as opposed to uplifting. A better ending would be to have Davey greet his mom in heaven.
I am giving it a 4 though because I think if the budget was larger this could have been excellent. I applaud them for trying; they did an adequate job on a very low budget. I definitely want to see more films of this genre but for next time they need to work a little harder with the refinement of the script, character development, cast.
