Call me judgmental and pretentious as much as you want. I'm absolutely astounded that anyone would find the story touching or uplifting. This is abhorrent, manipulative, and disgusting. It fails on almost every conceivable level. As a mentally ill person, I was insulted. A more detestable protagonist there has never been.
Just so you know, after I first watched this, my friends and I quoted everything in this movie back and forth to each other. Constantly. We forgot what it was like to have a real conversation. We were the most insufferable human beings imaginable for, like, a month.
EDIT: It turns out that Max Landis is a rapist. That's a big yikes.
