1:54 - “I look like a princess but I smell like a peasant.” 5:13 - Haha, love Scarlett Johansson trying to pretend to be uncomfortable on camera. 7:20 - Ooh, taking pills and sleeping for 16 hours but together. They’re the best couple! 11:03 - “Do you have a job?” “Activism is a full time job, but also no.” 14:39 - So the house will be trashed, couldn’t be more signposted. 19:55 - Peer pressure, much? 25:21 - “I’m drunk! I lost two credit cards already!” 34:14 - She couldn’t have been more suspicious. 41:32 - So many bad decisions. So many. 45:32 - “I couldn’t even get through the first episode of Orange is the New Black.” 48:55 - Shopkeepers have seen it all. 1:01:15 - She’s right that no pictures would be suspicious, but would murder be your first thought? 1:12:05 - It’s never-ending! 1:21:30 - Heck of a code word. 1:27:36 - “Shimmy, shimmy, shimmy.” 1:31:41 - I have questions though. 1:33:20 - Love wins.

Conclusions

This is another of those films that is really, very bad. Entertaining and fun to watch but not a good film at all. And considering the cast, it was a wasted opportunity really. It should have been funnier, should have had a stronger, less predictable story, should have been better.

Good to watch if you’re at a loose end and want something that isn’t going to make you think, at all, but I’m not actually recommending it to anyone.

Rating: 2/5.
