27 April 2013 | by najwa-sky-limitSee all my reviews

i saw the trailer of this movie and didn't understand anything but i love josh hutcherson and i watched all of his movies so i thought i'll give it a go, thank you josh for introducing me to one of the craziest movies ever. this flick you either absolutely love or hate, it's not one move it's a bunch of movies mashed up together like the director took a dozen films put them in a blunder and came up with the weirdest most addictive cocktail ever, what's more cool about it is that it doesn't take itself or other movies too seriously, it's direct and honest to audiences, it tells you from the start , we're here to have fun but that doesn't mean it's empty, oh boy it's full to the brim with crazy ideas and outrageous twists it's a popcorn movie that makes you think and ask after watching because while watching you'r too busy catching up with it's fast pace and different stories which all connect at the end. the cast are pretty good especially that girl who plays Riley and the popular girl ione and of course josh"Clapton Davis" with his cool shades.this is one of few movies i watch repeatedly because it's fun and interesting
