It wasn't until halfway through this movie on Netflix that I did a little research and discovered it was a movie-length edit of a web series, and that made SO MUCH SENSE. That is exactly how it felt. But I didn't even mind the choppy, amateur feel of it because the script itself is so much fun. It's goofy and ridiculous and over-the-top and I found myself smiling throughout and really falling in love with the characters. This is a pretty specific style of humor that is certainly not going to appeal to everyone, but I found it charming and entertaining, and that's really all I could ask for in my comedies. 4 stars.
Flickchart: This movie is not on Flickchart yet. I've added it to the database, but until it's been approved by the moderators, no Flickchart rating.
