My prejudices immediately told me that this was going to be a horrible teen comedy thing. But it’s not! It’s a fun teen comedy thing.
The actors are charming (it’s an ensemble thing) and the interlocking plots (FSVO plot) are all kinda interesting (and intersects in interesting ways) and there’s a handful of lines that made me laugh out loud. And there’s nothing annoying here: Not even the soundtrack.
It’s just like a total delight. I mean, it’s not the best movie ever or anything, but it’s just fun.
Oh, I should get the furniture in from the balconies…
Anyway, I’m just 30 minutes in, and I do so hope that there’s not going to be a third act with All The Drama. But I’m not holding my breath.
OK, I took the furniture in while er watching the movie.
Wow! The weeds that totally took over the planter are still green! That stuff is indomitable.

Yeah, like clockwork, The Dreaded Third Act rolls in, bringing all the drama that we didn’t miss from the first two parts. Why do filmmakers do this?
I subtract two stars for the final thirty minutes.
