This comedic/drama film is about a young woman who decides to move out West in order to be with her Instagram famous icon, following the death of her mother and many other unfortunate events. Although things start off smooth, they quickly take a turn for the worst as the two women begin to learn more about one another. This movie is a satire in many ways, as any Aubrey Plaza film usually is, however it did not deliver as many laughs as I expected. The premise of the film is something you can only really understand if you grew up in the twenty first century, and it has many stereotypical and cheap jokes. Nonetheless, I would rate the film 3.5/5 stars for delivering lots of fun entertainment. @The_Reviewer of the Hamilton Public Library Teen Review Board

A dark comedy about how people's obsession of being 'liked' on social media can spiral out of control. A cautionary tale perhaps?

In this time of the world where many friends are 'online' it does give this a real time feeling. People stalked 'famous' people previously but now they have a electronic method. After all how did the Kardashian's become so well known and yet not liked as well. That social network takes away the personal aspect and makes more people feel lonelier.

Wasn't to bad of a movie kind of slow and boring at times!

I liked this as a creepy, cringe-y dark comedy. What I didn't like so much was the "social commentary" aspect, which I suspect the filmmakers thought was important but for me just fell flat. Still worth a watch.

An interesting commentary on making friends in the world of social media obsessed people.

Aubrey Plaza and Elizabeth Olsen are really good in this quirky, funny, dark movie.

Painful to watch, and didn't make fun of the current Instagram culture like I'd hoped.

I couldn't stop watching even though it's an average movie. Chick flick--

Call it a "Single White Female" for the age of Instagram. A lonely, unbalanced woman (Aubrey Plaza) who has recently lost her mother moves to California to stalk/befriend an Instagram star (Elizabeth Olsen) and her artist husband (Wyatt "son of Kurt" Russell). Plaza, whom I've liked since "Parks and Recreation," fully commits to the part and is able to make a pretty unlikable character both sympathetic and cringe-worthy. I think it wants to be saying something about social media culture, but it's not quite clever enough. Worth seeing for those who like their indie movies dark and a little off kilter. Ice Cube's son O'Shea Jackson, Jr. co-stars.
