Synopsis: A young writer tries to impress a girl he meets online with an embellished profile, but he finds himself in a real mess when she falls for him and he has to keep up the act.

I don't really have much to say about this movie though. I do enjoy watching it, but it's probably just to kill time. Sam is a writer that writes books based on already released movie, and he's pretty much socially inept. It's about good enough that he had Alan as his friend. Sam met Birdie at a coffee shop where Birdie worked as a waitress. He tried to talk to her, but their conversation turned rather awkward.

After Birdie was fired from her job, Sam started opening her Facebook page (more like stalking) and learned about the things that Birdie loved. He followed and did everything and anything that she mentioned; from reading the books that she read, learn how to cook, learn to play guitar, drink bourbon, and basically claimed that he's interested in everything that she liked.

When they started going out, Birdie started getting closer to him and he was dumbfounded when Birdie confessed that she's in love with him. He got mad at her instead and blamed her, when clearly, it was his fault from the start? Who even told him to act and pretend to be someone who he's not?

If I was Birdie, I'd paste a huge paper on his face that says: IDIOT. Because that was how he was acting. Like an idiot. Birdie would have liked him anyway even if he's different from her. She did, because she knew he wasn't exactly like what he wanted her to know.

It's a pretty sweet story, sort of, but it's still creepy that Sam stalked her page. I'm taking a mental note not to post too much about what I liked online. I definitely don't want this to happen to me.

Overall rate: ★★☆☆☆ (2.75 out of 5)

Till next time ♡ Love, Humaira
