This is a good comedy to watch when nothing else is on. That is the 1st impression. The second impression is that Shannon kind of convinces you to keep watching to see what happens with her issue and although I got a bit sleepy, I actually caught myself trying to keep my eyes open to watch it till the end. Some say this is a manifest in favor of vegans and the love for animals and although I cannot disagree, I cannot agree either. At the end there is no indication that being a vegan and loving animals to death is a good thing nor a bad thing. It shows how lifechanging this devotion may be of course but I was suprised to see that the side of White was kind of neutral I think. If you remove the kind of addiction (love for animals) and you keep the plot, this could be a movie about (I don't know..) the extreme love about anything..which would never drive you that far if you do have a healthy life (all aspects included).
Shannon does not have anything full-filling in her life and finds everyone dissappointing: her over-protective brother (having kids), her insensitive boss (work), her girlfriend who is cheated but carries on staying with him and her own unsuccessful attempts to have a boyfriend(relationships)so I think that this film is about how someone will follow the one thing that makes them happy when nothing else goes well in their life, even if this is not the right thing. From this point of view, this film's message was brilliant. If White actually wanted to pass this message on. Otherwise I'm just mental. Well, I would recommend this movie anyway.
