I've just finished watching this movie and I must admit I didn't expect it to be as great as I think it was. First of all, the plot was original. When I read what was the movie about I automatically wanted to give it a try which now I think was a good impulse. The cast was unknown to me with the exception of Zach Braff whom I consider a great actor after seeing "The last Kiss" and "Garden State".

Second, the narration of the story was well done and I think there was nothing else to ad, of course the ending leave me hanging because I wanted to know what was going to happen next but nevertheless was a terrific ending. I just wish the movie could show all of that on the rating, the current one doesn't make it justice. I highly recommend it!
