I have to say, though cliche-filled, I rather enjoyed this. Page might be my new crush. She's hugely engaging, and despite the rather pat storyline and "girl power" premise, I enjoyed the movie's fizzy energy and winning performances Pretty fun, I'd say.
EDIT: I forgot to click on the check mark in the "add a poll" box. My apologies.
