I saw it yesterday and enjoyed it quite a bit. It was funny and sweet and mildly demented.
Sequel! I’d watch it, because I really liked the two main characters. They had great chemistry and their relationship was very sweet and believable. Even if there’s not a sequel, Mark Duplass and Aubrey Plaza need to do more movies together.
I thought I’d seen Aubrey Plaza before, and I was right. I recently saw the off-center Damsels In Distress (twice), starring Greta Gerwig, and Plaza had a small but funny role. She was also pretty funny in Scott Pilgrim vs. The World. I haven’t seen her TV work. Two of the three indies I saw yesterday starred Mark Duplass (the other being Your Sister’s Sister with Emily Blunt), who’s now officially on my “I’m impressed!” list. I not only liked him in both movies, I knew his name sounded familiar so I looked him up. Damn! The man wrote and directed two movies I liked a lot*, Baghead and Cyrus along with his brother Jay. To bring it full circle, the 3rd indie I saw yesterday was Lola Versus, starring Greta Gerwig, an actress I like very much, even when she’s in dodgy movies (like Lola Versus). I first saw and was impressed by Greta Gerwig in…Mark & Jay Duplass’s Baghead.
*and one I didn’t, Jeff Who Lives At Home.
