    This was so sweet, funny and sentimental without being overbearing or too schmaltzy. I loved it.

    Just saw this last night in NJ. Maybe my favorite movie this year (either that or Get Out). Definitely my favorite RomCom in at least a decade.

    Plenty of laughs and absolutely sweet.

    I loved it too. A movie like this could've been daunting in spots considering what happens to one of the characters, but they dodge that bullet and is better for it. Kumail shines, while Ray Romano and Holly Hunter managed to surprise me. This was just great all around

    I really liked this!

    Not a slight against this film specifically but rather the sort of umbrella of films this falls under, but it's becoming a little tiring the way all these films hit the same beats. 45-60 min of straight firing jokes, then plot takes over and jokes fall aside. I felt like with the whole reconciliation towards that I knew every thing it was going to hit. I know this is their story so I kind of excuse it more than usual, but this formula is becoming increasingly played out. I'm waiting for a film where they just keep shooting jokes for the whole thing.

    I feel like Zoe Kazan does not get enough love. This and The F Word are probably the best of these indie rom-coma to come out in recent memory.

    Oh my lord this hit me so hard. I don't think I love a movie this year as much as this one. Kazan was amazing. Kumail was amazing. The script and Showalter's direction were so beautiful, the scene where Kumail and Emily's parents go to her apartment while she's in her coma and everything is untouched was so poignant, and later on when she's out of the coma and going out, Ray Romano has a line delivery of "You've got your phone?" That just killed me. I expected to like this as a fan of the Indoor Kids and Kumail and Emily in general but I tried to temper my expectations, but really it just connected with me so hard in everything it did.

    I wrote up a little bit on letterboxd why this movie seemed to hit on every single possible level a movie can hit me.

    I really enjoyed this. Definitely got emotional at times despite knowing the outcome. Also, I'm happy to see Showalter impress me as a director with the equally enjoyable Hello My Name Is Doris.

    And I totally spotted the real Emily sitting in the back next to Bo at the NYC show
