Okay so who doesn't love a good Simon Pegg comedy. As soon as I saw the trailer for this I was excited. This kind of felt somewhat like Eat Pray Love which isn't a bad thing. The supporting cast here does a wonderful job with a few pretty big names playing very minor yet pivotal roles. It had some pretty hilarious moments, some rather heart warming moments, and some of it made you actually think a... read more

BradWesley123's Movie Journal- May 2015 (40 movies items)

" DVD- 1hr. 53min. First Viewing The cast's charms aren't enough to make up for a boring story that we've seen played out a thousand times before. It doesn't help that the movie is incredibly cloying at almost every turn, never allowing any scene to achieve anything resembling genuine and/or human."

"First watched 6/14/2016 Thoughts: While not particularly engaging it serves as a nice distraction with some nice locations and the personality of Simon Pegg to guide us along."
