Too dispiriting to be painful and too pointless to deserve the effort necessary for an additional word of opprobrium.
Exemplifies Blumhouse at its worst and it’s not hard to see why this failed Hitchcock wannabe was never released theatrically. Even at the attractive price of “free,” it’s not worth it.
Although the screenplay knows how to set things up, it fails to deliver down the stretch, leaving us with a by-the-numbers resolution.
Part romantic-comedy and part coming-of-age story, this is an upbeat, uplifting, and teen-friendly crowd-pleaser.

Although the movie’s strength occurs early in the proceedings, it tells a story worth being told.
