90% drama - not a comedy movie - it's a relationship-drama
1 January 2014 | by See all my reviews

Well before I start, I must say this movie is about 90% drama (in regards to the genre)... if you're looking to watch a comedy, this isn't the movie for you too watch - it's a relationship-drama, which is exactly what I expected going into the movie (reading the message boards, seems like a lot of people were thinking "comedy movie", although one guy cracked me up a few times).

So basically you have a group of friends from college who all kinda drifted apart throughout the years... you know, they ain't talk much to each other, hang out, etc. One of there friends ends up dying in some freak accident, so everyone in the circle is called up for the funeral service (and everyone goes). At the funeral service, to be honest I dunno what this occupation is called but... the girl who handles the persons wills... she has a voice recording of the victim, and on the recording he explains how he made a large sum of money and everyone is going to get some of the will, but there is one condition - no one can leave the house-area for 5 days. If someone does, no one gets no money. So the whole fading group of friends is stuck in the house for 5 days.

So beyond the set-up to the story, it's just general relationship problems (that includes both friendships and significant others) that occur among the people in this movie... so if you like that kinda stuff, then you might enjoy this movie.

I gave this movie a 7 to 8 stars out of 10 simply because I enjoyed the movie... it wasn't super deep or touching... but it was fairly interesting. If you go into this movie expecting some hilarious comedy, then you won't make it too the end, simple as that. But if you go in looking for a relationship-drama... then this should be worth while.
