Goofs

After Sam tells Lindsay why she loves her, the camera angle changes to over Sam's shoulder looking at Lindsay. The audio has the other girls laughing but you can clearly see Sam's jaw moving in sync to her previous line before Lindsay audibly says 'Asshole' See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Samantha Kingston: [voiceover] Maybe for you there's a tomorrow. Maybe for *you*, there's 1,000 or 3,000, or 10... So much time, you can bathe in it. So much time, you can waste it. But for some of us, there's only today, and what you do today matters - in the moment, and maybe into infinity... But I didn't know any of that... Until right before I fell.

This film is much better than advertised, IMHO
1 April 2017 | by See all my reviews

Groundhog Day was played for laughs thereby selling the potential of this concept short. And though this more youthful and feminine take doesn't quite wring everything out of it, it goes much farther than the original, and that's really good to see.

Most critics point out the promise of the lead, Zoey Deutch, who is good, but for me the real star is the story and its execution. There are group scenes in this film that are incredibly natural, as if these actors were actually friends. The gabby girlfriend thing is a bit much for guys, but it moves on pretty quickly. And there's also the performance of the main baddie, Halston Sage, who manages to conjure up every snooty clique queen you've ever known.

All in all, an entertaining time at the movies showing a lot of promise for its young director, Ry Russo-Young.
