★★★★ review by Irimiás and Petrina on Letterboxd
A big surprise! I really dug this and while not every moment worked for me, it achieved a certain kind of emotion I'm not even sure how to describe. Ultimately very satisfying and that fireworks drone shot is simply one of the best things I've ever seen in my life. If anything, watch it for that shot. It's on hulu!
★★★★★ review by J.P. Vitale on Letterboxd
Right up my proverbial alley, this is the kind of off-kilter romantic comedy I love, complete with a killer soundtrack and female lead Kate Lyn Sheil (one of my all-time favorite actresses. Fred Topel likes her too).
Yes, Eugene is an obnoxious character but who cares? This is an impeccably charming, smart, sexy, artistically nuanced romantic comedy that speaks to our generation.
★★★★ review by Samuel B. Prime on Letterboxd
Faithful to a particular type of twenty-something / almost thirty-something contemporary LA life in a way that is hot, sticky, shallow, beautiful, and true.
★★★★★ review by Jake James Kath on Letterboxd
Wild, loose, and ultimately, moving! Eugene Kotlyarenko is a real deal filmmaker who molds movies from our new technological outlets while finding the engaging truth within these stories. I haven't seen such a movie that uses cell phone footage so effortlessly to the point where it doesn't come as a novelty and that's no small feet. The whole thing is perfectly cast and ranges from broad to naturalistic performances and finding nuances in between (especially the high emotions from the leads). The real essence of the movie really comes down to knowing from the get go that the leads were in an actual relationship off screen and the seeing the thunder between the two gives the movie so much more weight. Lots to take away from this one.
