Overall the movie was good and I would recommend it to others.  There were a lot of funny parts in the movie and great acting by all the cast members. I did not like the fact that there was smoking and drinking in this moviethat really made me sad. The secondary characters who were young adults were always smoking in a group of people surrounding a van and in one scene around a campfire. Thankfully there was no product placement or brand of tobacco shown. I felt really sad to see a group of people passing around rolled up tobacco, it wasn’t necessary to show smoking in these scenes. I definitely wouldn’t miss it if the smoking scenes were removed from the movie, I did rate it lower because of this!
