Pleasantly surprised by the consistently funny tone, and even a few laugh out loud moments. The narrative is as cookie-cutter as it gets, but the amusement shared between the cast and crew is obvious and seeps over onto the audience. Even the attempts at emotional scenes appears more heartfelt than cynical.
Though I can’t really shake the feeling that multiple viewings would be more enjoyable if the movie was incompetently made and/or a cash-grab. Strange thing to say about a film originating from a Pepsi commercial, but director Charles Stone III actually manages to insert some sincerity into it.
