I came to this film expecting a comedy yes but a little extra too. In the end I found it lacking on both fronts. I see no real growth in the lead character. Yes...we went on a journey with her but I could have done without this film. I may have expected too much but I expected more than what I got in watching this film. Conceptually it was a good idea but it had no soul. It fell apart either in the writing or the execution of the film. There were 1 or 2 scenes where it was approaching a soul but made an about turn before reaching the mark.

I thought it was really good and not at all what I was expecting.
