A mostly funny but occasionally dated comedy. Her reasoning that the pool boy is gay because he can identify her designer shoes is mildly cringe, but yeah that aside this is pretty slick and Reese is a commanding force throughout. I especially like the side-romance between the nail salon friend and the UPS guy. And you already know we ALWAYS mess with the Wilson brethren.
I’d hesitated to watch this for awhile because I saw the word “dance” in the synopsis but shame on me, because I dug it. There’s enough coming-of-age stories and too few I’m-27-what-am-I-doing-with-my-life stories, and with the utmost sincerity, I hope it becomes a bonafide genre.
Greta Gerwig is so charming in this!!! I was smitten with her character from the second I met her, watching her navigate New York City life was nothing but a joy.
