Goofs

When Will watches his viral video, he expands it to full screen then sits back to watch. As Skeezy D speaks without interruption, the next shot of the screen shows it is no longer a full-screen view even though Will was not shown leaning forward to press the ESC key. Similarly, when he gets excited about the number of views rising in real time (which YouTube does not do), he raises his arms above his head, but in the immediate next shot the laptop screen is displaying the comments section that was not visible in the previous shot, even though there's no way Will could have scrolled down while his hands were high in the air.

Flawed but watchable
21 April 2016 | by Seth_Rogue_OneSee all my reviews

Despite of a cast with some really big names such as Anna Kendrick, Bryan Cranston, Christopher Mintz Plasse, Marcia Gay Harden, Jorge Garcia, John C McGuinly, Brandon T Jackson, Ravi Patel this was filmed in 2012 but it was not released until 2016.

Once you've seen it it's not terribly hard to see why, it tries to squeeze in a little too much than it can handle in a very short running time (74 minutes without credits) to the point that it get a little confusing at times.

Which it's definitely not meant to be as this is meant to be a easy going comedy influenced by 80's coming of age comedies but set in present day.

But it's far from all bad though, there are some seriously funny stand-alone gags and Miles Teller is a pretty good lead and I could have swore he was John Cusack's son (he sure looks like it).

In the end I kind of enjoyed it but I felt like it should have been a lot more fleshed out, not sure if perhaps it was longer at some point and the studio mercilessly cut it down because they felt like it didn't have enough substance to be a 100 minute movie or whatever.

Which caused it to often lack coherence and flow, whatever it may be despite it's flaws I definitely didn't dislike it, it helps if you like the cast, just don't expect a big movie experience.

5.5/10
