    ★★½

    Decent but rather shallow vacation dramedy about 2 very different young women trying to find love and their identities in whatever order.

Well, that style is back but now we gotta hear smartass dialogue about people who buy organic food. If you’re looking for awkward, misguided, shoehorned monologues Don Johnson gives one right out of the gate that gets 9 Neil Breens out of a possible 10…
