Best part of story, including ending: What I didn't like about the story is the script. It was a lazy script and the movie was forgettable. It didn't make you feel like it was worth watching again.

Best scene in story: My favorite scene would be when Noah is with Blithe at the store and he tells her to shut up. One of the girls at the store tell him,"do not tell her to shut up" with an attitude. The whole scene was hilarious especially at the end when he says biatch.

Opinion about the main character: The main character was quite a mess but he did have his moments of making me laugh. What I didn't like about his character is he plays an asshole teenager and was a bit too vulgar to my taste.
