The beginning was horrible, but "Laggies" turned out to be a very nice surprise. I think this is my favorite Kiera Knightly movie and I don't really like her that much at all. Completely unexpected, which is my favorite kind of movie. Not at all what I was expecting. I'm glad I gave it a chance. The fact that it takes place in Seattle was a huge plus, BTW.
Watch it for Keira Knightley, Sam Rockwell & ChloeM. Another dysfunctional family but with a new best friend in the picture. Dysfunctional but with company - not alone. On the plus side, the story line is new. Realistic? Not for me. A lighthearted dysfunctional family story. Take away ... even in a fictional story, liquor continues to make life complicated. The Bonus material was interesting.
Okay. Filmed in Seattle and found myself mostly interested in its film locations.
I recommend Laggies for those who like independent films and have ever struggled with growing up or know someone who has. Sam Rockwell was my favorite part of this movie; for me, that's true of almost every movie he is in.
Turned this off after fifteen minutes. Was drawn to the movie based on the trailer, but the actual movie lacked the edge and meaning that the trailer had. Movie felt kinda silly and cliche rather than searching and meaningful.
Keira Knightley had an American accent. I still don't know how I feel about this.
Wonderful, sweet movie! Great performances and wonderful acting by Keira Knightley and Chloe Moretz...actually a wonderful ensemble cast, good story, and very nice scenery of Seattle throughout :)
If it weren't for the fun of trying
to deduce where the Seattle
scenes were shot I would give this flop only 1 star. All the
"F" words sprinkled thru the
whole thing didn't help at all.
Writer gets a "D-".
This movie felt like some odd updated version of The Parent Trap. I just couldn't buy into the premise that Kiera Knightley's character would be so stunted that she would start up a friendship with a 14-year old, and then with that child's father. Gets a few stars from me for the decent cast, although I thought Knightley was a little too old to be playing this role given all of her typical characters.
Kiere Knightly gives a wonderful performance but the movie is terrible. Hard to focus and follow. Sam Rockwell also does a great performance. The story needed some tweaking. filmed in Seattle that is the main reason I watched the film
this is a movie so bad that it was not worth the electricity to run my DVD player. the preview was interesting, the movie a waste of time. don't bother with this film.
Set in Seattle and the Eastside. A woman learns to direct her own life instead of just following others' expectations.
This was way better than I thought it would be, and Keira Knightley did a convincing American Accent.
The acting and cinematography are good, but the writing is mediocre. Pretty much any other Lynn Shelton movie is a better bet.
A sweet film that comes to life once Sam Rockwell appears. He and Keira Knightly should work together again.
A Seattle film actually filmed in Seattle! I had to give an extra star for that. Sorry Vancouver you are awesome, but I have seen way too many Seattle films shot in Vancouver. The coffee shop was actually in Kenmore so that really isn't the Eastside would be my only criticism. The film itself was decent. I thought the dance scene from her friends wedding was really funny.
Keira Knightley and Chloe Grace Moretz are great together here.
Funny (late) coming of age story. :)
Fun coming-of-age comedy. Keira Nightly is very convincing as a confused grad who has no idea where her life is going while everyone around her seems a bit more grown up and objective. Sam Rockwell is a bit too old to play her love interest (16 years difference? Really?) but he plays his part well. Quite enjoyable
