You will love this movie!!!
6 June 2016 | by christyperrenSee all my reviews

I watched The Steps at Cineplex on Friday night. OMG it was so good!!! Jason Ritter plays this New York business dude who was fired, but pretends he's still got a job. Emannuelle Chriqui (from Entourage) is his sister who was a bit like me when I was in my 20s! They head up to northern Ontario to meet their new step mother and step siblings and the sh*t starts to happen. I really loved everything about this movie. It was funny, and charming, and really smart. Part way through I realized there was real emotional depth at work. It crept up on me, and I really started to feel the pain from these characters. It just felt like a lot of the people I grew up with. I went with my guy and he really loved it too. 10 out of 10!!!! So good, check it out. You will love it!!!
