My girlfriend and I had been wanting to watch this movie for some time, since we're lesbians that love representation, so we were very excited. We ended up severely disappointed.
So many plot holes. Sub-plots that made no sense, nor contributed anything. Characters that were pointless. Drama that happened out of nowhere and was resolved just as fast, without any sort of explanation.
The only thing we liked were the lesbian grandmas, who ended up being side-characters in their own movie, which ended up focusing on selfish and messy characters. Very disappointing.
