I don't think i'm a fan of BOATS. I'd rather watch a documentary. Jackie is a very one note movie. She goes around giving really bad Burns the whole movie. I know she is smarter then this.
It's cool to see where Noah Baumbachs Frances Ha and Lena Dunhams Girls has drawn a lot of inspiration from (Claudia Weill even directed an episode of Girls). But i like both Frances Ha and Girls a lot more then Girl Friends even though it's hard not to fall in love with the characters (as in Girls).
Awesome dialogue, beautifully shot and humor that works surprisingly well today (e.g. dude puncturing a un irritating kid's balloon). Simple and brilliant plot that doesn't need the world blowing up to keep the viewers attention.
The bad stuff. Horrendous acting now and then. Background projection in very weird places. I guess most people find these "flaws" charming but i didn't like it.
