Fun movie to see - Emma Thompson on top of her game

Rated R, Comedy, Drama, 102 minutes


Emma Thompson and Mindy Kaling have good chemistry on screen with a strong ensemble cast.  Good script, cinematography, and editing.  The story moves along briskly with defined points and not too obvious conclusions.

Interestingly...
Mindy Kaling worked for Conan O'Brien as an intern.

What I Liked
  • Good acting Good script Good cinematography Good editing Enjoyable soundtrack  
What I Didn’t
  • Not the most original of stories but still well presented and executed
