Is It Any Good?

Odd but sweet, this story about the power of female friendship and the importance of moving on is entertainingly offbeat but not truly revelatory. While the movie's message does fit on a sign, it's not exactly concise -- "We can't lose what we once enjoyed; what we loved becomes a part of us." A shorter takeaway might be to say that this is the friendship version of "it's better to have loved and lost than to never have loved at all."

The fact that Jennifer returns in a very unexpected form allows Vanessa to reflect on the wonderful memories they shared and come to accept that their time together was wonderful but is now over. For many teens, there may not be much here to connect with, although the unusual story is just engaging enough to keep their attention. But for those who have lost a friend, expect tears. Buckets of them.
