      I am very grateful for this film. The relaxed tone easily brought me back to a simple world with a little depression and a little freshness. Yes, this movie is light-hearted, so easy that even the critics jumped up. Perhaps what is depicted in the film is a common phenomenon among modern students, but there are not so many people who are sentimental and thinking about themselves. And think he should go to a mental hospital. For this reason, I am fortunate and proud. Compared with Chinese...

      Funny Life, everyone is the same.

      "It's like on the verge of blowing up, all the stress and pressure and anxiety just bubbling up, but I'm never able to let it out like that." This quote from Craig after Bobby was out of control was especially touching. Almost everyone will encounter this critical point, but the choices they make are different. Nia will go to see a psychiatrist; Craig chooses to send himself to a mental hospital before committing suicide, which is considered self-help; Noelle has attempted suicide many times;...

      Say hello to life

      In fact, life is like this. We always try our best to avoid it. If we don’t have breakfast in the morning, we can not work seriously. If we are hurt by our ex, we can stop loving others seriously. Because of the wind, we can hide in the embrace of hypocrisy. But life will not send us back to escape forever. One day we have to face all kinds of cruel truths in life. When that day comes, can we really find a place that can take us temporarily and let us rest. No matter how cruel and vomitting...

      What a healing little fresh

      I've never played such a movie quietly. It's
      a bit like a psychological movie, or a movie that gives people power.
      Recently, my mood is very low, I'm always exploring all kinds of joyful things in life, and the jokes are laughing at myself.
      In fact, it really hurts to fall in love with someone who doesn't love me. . . Haha
      maybe, on the other side of the motherland, people live unrestrainedly and unrestrainedly, and I am on this side, suffering from life and death, can I...

      Funny but kinds of green

      Just saying a few

      funny words, Zack really laughed to death as soon as he opened his mouth.

      Emma Roberts is so beautiful. Good looking to die. Oh shit. If I were ten years younger. . .

      Although the director has filmed half of Nelson, I think it is still tender, there are a lot of laughs, and the cuts are very hasty, so it can be more fully, and the control is not very sophisticated.

      I love this kind of story, nothing to say. It doesn't have much...
