22 October 2012 | by brittaneypSee all my reviews

Excuse Me For Living is one of the best films I've seen this year alone, This film has a very awesome cast and crew and Ric Klass did an amazing job with this film. This film will make you laugh and smile. I know it made me smile and laugh a lot. Melissa Archer who played the lead actress in the film did an AMAZING Profound JOB as her character and the whole cast gave 110% I think. I would recommend everyone see this film and read the book, the book is great too. I haven't finished it yet but soon. I give this film a 10/10 Star rating. I love the Film, I love everyone that is in the cast and I'm a HUGE Melissa Archer fan!! I have come to know Ric Klass by helping promote the film via my fb fan page dedicated to Melissa Archer and everything.. It a great film. I will say I was shocked at one part of this film but I won't saw which because I don't want to give away any surprises.. Just go see it!!
