Nina Geld (Winstead) is a bracingly funny and blisteringly provocative stand-up comedian whose career is taking off, but whose personal life is a near-complete disaster. To escape a difficult ex and to prepare for a prospectively life-changing audition, Nina flees to Los Angeles where she meets Rafe (Common), who challenges almost every preconception she has -- including those around her own deeply troubled past.
You know how children like to talk about poop (well, in developed countries, but not in undeveloped where you live w/it outside your door all the time) - all giggly? Anyway, this had the same childish "It's naughty so it must be funny, humor." Not to exaggerate, but saying the "f...k" word in every other short, grade school level, sentence predominates the 90 minutes. That, and mostly girl talk on female genitalia consumes the other funny stuff. Ahh, to be sheltered & spoiled again.
No subtitling for poor enunciation or for viewers w/hearing issues. Another indicator that dialogue was not important.
