Trivia

Sierra's parents are played by actors who famously starred in 80s films also about teenage misfits; Lea Thompson in Back to the Future (1985) and Alan Ruck in Ferris Bueller's Day Off (1986). See more »

Goofs

While Jamey (Noah Centineo) is playing games with his brother, he has the XBox controller on his lap. On that specific controller, the light would be on if the console itself was on. The light is off when it's on his lap. Meaning they cannot be playing video games while the XBox or his controller is off. See more »

Quotes

Sierra: Thank you, but I don't need you to fight my battles for me.
Ms. Thomson: Oh believe me, everyone knows that. I just really enjoy it.

It's whatever.
9 September 2018 | by asanchez44194See all my reviews

For the most part I liked the movie. But it's not a movie that you'll fall in love with. Kinda dumb and unrealistic.
