Quirky comedy, not bad!

I actually liked this indie movie, I wasn't sure at first but realized it was actually quite fun. It's funny in a very quirky way, characters act silly most of the time but it also had a sense of realness to it. Nicole (Jess Weixler) and Olivia (Jennifer Prediger) are best friends and artists who live in an apartment together but struggle to pay the rent; with a dead cat, no electricity or food, they decide to go to LA to visit Nicole's rich aunt, Kimberley who is the host of a reality show and makes moves on Olivia. Olivia secretly loves Nicole but never comes forward about it, their friendship is then tested especially after a taro card reading that states the girls must lose everything and start over. In the end, Olivia gets an acting job and the two separate, but realize they've only lost emotionally and that when one door closes, another one opens. It has some great messages, you just need to look over the sarcasm the film demonstrates. Violence is mild with a shouting match between friends, some arguing throughout, a cat is shown dead. Language has a few f-words, sh*t, @ss. Sexual content is mild and shows an older woman hitting on a younger woman by trying to kiss her - they kiss once. A woman kisses her old landlord hoping she doesn't have to pay rent. Prescription pills are sometimes taken, one character gets very drunk. OK for viewers 15+.
