QUICK TAKE:
Romantic Comedy: A desperate woman and her two best friends travel to Mexico in hopes of deleting the mean email they drunkenly sent to her new boyfriend who they incorrectly believed was ghosting her.
PLOT:

Things have been better for 37-year-old Wesley Darya (NASIM PEDRAD), despite having two best friends in Brooke Barnes (ANNA CAMP) -- whose husband has cheated on her -- and Kaylie Mills (SARAH BURNS) who's desperately trying to get pregnant. Not only is Wesley an unemployed guidance counselor, but her ex is now engaged to another woman while she's not dating anyone.

She hopes that might change on a blind date set up by Kaylie's husband, but Wesley and architect Sean McGuire (LAMORNE MORRIS) definitely do not hit it off. Moments after he calls off that date over them seeming incompatible, she trips, knocks herself out, and awakens to sports agent Jared Sterling (ROBBIE AMELL) who sweeps her off her feet.

She wins him over by acting completely unlike her normal self and they end up sleeping together, but then she doesn't hear from him for days. Thinking he's ghosting her, she, Brooke, and Kaylie drunkenly write an angry email to him, unaware that he's been in a coma for the past few days following a car accident in Mexico.

Realizing their fledgling relationship will be ruined by that email, Wesley convinces her friends to fly from L.A. to Cabo, find his phone or laptop, and erase that message before he ever sees it. But they soon discover that their plan is going to end up more complicated than they imagined.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
