“ They're tiresome to say the most.
“ Not only is she gorgeous, funny and engaging, she's an amazing singer!!
“ This is an excellent "slice of life" movie, very easy to relate to and entertaining.
“ Yes, it got the love story - actually three of them which makes it quite surprising that none of them are rather believable (bald girl falls for ugly guy, because he wants to treat her like a princess, even though she only really seems to care about her not having any hair, the boring couple gets a good talk, even though it's obvious they're only together because they don't know what else to do - and our main person, let's call him Mr. Irritating gets the extremely hot girl, because he...
“ There are also some great quotes throughout the film and it's visually stunning to watch.
“ All of the characters are actually pretty childish, extremely superficial and depressingly self indulgent.
“ So in short I was so bored that I didn't even make it through the movie.
