Pleasantly Surprised...

I was pleasantly surprised by this movie. I found it to be very entertaining and a fun flick to watch with some light comedy. The storyline was good and the acting was way better than I expected especially from Alexis Bledel. I was so happy to see Anna Chlumsky in this as I haven't seen her acting since My Girl. I love her! The language throughout is far too strong for younger viewers and there are some bar scenes with lots of drinking and a few drug references. Also a lot of flirting and some cheating. Definitely not recommended for viewers under 16.
