Actor Ryan Eggold turns into director Ryan Eggold. Justin Long plays Adam, a young guy that’s invited to his ex-girlfriends wedding. Awkward. Actually, there are plenty of funny awkward moments in the film. Cobie Smulders plays Allison, the ex. This is a charming, fun and enjoyable film. Eggold does a great job in his directorial debut. The characters are well written by Eggold, each one of them serves a purpose and brings something to the story. Long and Smulders play off each other really well. The strong supporting cast includes John Cho, Ryan Hansen, Kristen Schaal and Lea Thompson among others. If you’re looking for a fun and entertaining under-the-radar comedy, this is the movie to see.
