Very unpleasant
10 May 2013 | by See all my reviews

I guess it was supposed to be funny, but it isn't, i found it even a little boring. It's also very sarcastic, and in my opinion quite offending. Maybe there are some things you shouldn't make fun of, but if you do, you should do it with some respect. This movie makes a fool of suicide and depression, making it seem like some trivial little problem you can fix with a song and a kiss. I don't mean to be dull or petty, cause normally I'm not easily offended by some humor. The story is somewhat pointless, without moral or message. Besides the disturbing story, the picture is average, but the songs are poor. The story and the interactions are a bit childish, but don't get it wrong, it's not very recommendable for children. I was very disappointed, cause the concept seemed promising. I would like to get my time back...
