(Before we get into this review, I just gotta say, this movie gets better and better the more I think about it, and my sisters keep pulling it out for girls’ nights with their friends so I think they agree. It’s everything I want in a chick-flick–wholesome, deep, nerdy, and just plain adorable. 💗)
Just look at this scrumptious cover…
What I thought was going to be another shallow, dime-a-dozen teenage romance movie ended up being a heartfelt, deep message on life, loss, and the beauty of every moment as it passes away. I finished it with a tear or two. 😉
The rapidfire, overlapping, sometimes oddly divergent conversations between the main characters (and some side ones too) built such a realistic chemistry that was a delight to follow and the true backbone of the movie. His tangent on the plane, tho. 😂😂
And don’t get me started on how delightfully nerdy it was. From the copy of Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy to Time Bandits (onscreen! important to the plot!) to the theoretical physics and fourth dimension… I was unabashedly eating it up.
Those twists at the end though… If anything they gave the movie more soul.
CW: language, kissing, jokes about public nudity, hospitals, loss.
Available on Prime Video, filterable through VidAngel

Ooo, I really like romance stories that break the cliches and go deep! *adds this to watchlist*
Really, why can’t there be more of those kinds of movies?
*starts researching how to become a screenwriter instead* 😉
