    Really good watch, could watch again, and can recommend. I don't think this is one anyone is going to watch over and over, but it's a great one-shot. Lucy Hale is amazing, and I'll admit I wasn't a big fan of her character on "Pretty Little Liars", but it really seems that she can elevate any role she takes, this one included. I honestly have a very short list of actresses that could have pulled this off as well as she did. There was also a fun appearance by Jackie Cruz ("Orange is the New Black") with fun hair which was funny to see her expand her range, just a little, as the last time I saw her she was a scientist in "Tremors: Skrieker Island". The story is a little odd, but it's designed as a "slice of life" sort of rom-com, so the setting is so allegedly normal to contrast the main character as odd in the idea that she's not into sex. I'm really torn on the movie's key concept that she's odd for not being overly sexual or that she's not because she's so uptight. Regardless, she has a fun little list of things to do, but she's clearly going to do it once and move on. I'm a fan of "try it once, and if you don't like, then you can never do it again", but we're told to laugh at someone being brave about this. While the movie is supposed to be about her growth as a character, she clearly isn't designed to actually growth, just get out of her own way long enough to open her to a new experience of a new man, and then have that same openness become a conflict. I'd say that was a spoiler, but I think that is part of the movie's concept.
