Dumped by her boyfriend just three weeks before their wedding, Lola enlists her close friends for a series of adventures she hopes will help her come to terms with approaching 30 as a single woman. (IMDb)
I’m on the fence with this one. On one hand, there’s some good stuff happening in this one. The acting is quite good with some really funny moments, especially from Greta Gerwig as Lola, Zoe Lister Jones as her best friend, and Bill Pullman as her dad. But, I feel like this movie has no focus. It just kind of meanders its way along, until it finally reaches its point in the last five minutes. Yes, the lesson of self-love/acceptance is really important, but we have to get through over an hour of the main character crying over a breakup. I also thought that some of the writing made Lola more pathetic, rather than someone to root for, but thankfully Gerwig managed to keep it light for the most part.So, this is not a bad movie, but it’s also not something I’m going to rush back and watch again.
