Review:

All the feels!! I laughed, I cried, I was moved. In all fairness I did give birth a few months ago so my emotions are still a little loopy and anything about family and friends and love is going to make me cry.

It was a cute comedy, not really coming of age but kind of in a way. Instead of becoming adults the guys were realizing their age. For some of them this was discovering that while they’re older it doesn’t mean they’re dead, for others it was I’m old I can’t waste what time I’ve got left.

The weakest part of the movie was Lonnie, played by Romany Malco. His acting was fine but his character didn’t really need to be in the movie. I get the feeling that he might have had a larger part and it was cut for time. Maybe.

I don’t think I’d buy it, but I’d definitely watch it again. It’s possible it will grow on me with time, some movies do that.

3/5 stars
