This movie is cute and feel-good. While I have definitely spent various moments in my life appreciating how fortunate it has been, it's nice to have that same message contained in a movie.

I didn't like some of the movie's delivery. Certain scene which delved into the character Craig's mind deviated too much from the main movie. For example, when they sing "Under Pressure," the movie cuts away from real life completely. I guess I felt the movie should have been anchored.

Overall the movie had it's moments, but certain flaws keep the movie from being great. I would recommend the movie to others, wouldn't watch it again by myself, and wouldn't mind watching it again.

Watched the deleted scenes. The call to the suicide hotline was terrible. The checking the messages one was good. Lol, I didn't hear all of the table conversation. Yoga was good. I guess the scene with his dad didn't fit the final direction of the movie, otherwise it was an alright scene.
