Vee's email shows that the college she wants to attend asks her to accept admission and become a part of the class of 2020. If this movie takes place in 2017 like it is shown in other scenes, she would be a part of the class of 2021. See more »

Saw the trailer? There's no need to watch the movie then.
20 September 2016 | by (Croatia) – See all my reviews

Good idea that failed in execution. If you saw the trailer and read the reviews you might think that there's some depth hiding in the actual movie, but unfortunately, you'll be wrong to think so. The actors are the only bright spot. You'll see some well known and rising star faces who's acting was on point. The movie tries to win you with likable characters, scenes that show familiar problems to most internet users (e.g.Skype call glitching) and with a cute little morale story at the end but fails as it provides no depth to be discovered. Some scenes are super cringe worthy and left me feeling uncomfortable about my movie picking skills.

It's just one of those films you watch and forget about in a day, doesn't leave you questioning some character's decisions or the way it ended which left both me and my girlfriend disappointed. Overall 5/10.
