    Sheri Linden The Hollywood Reporter

    A small-scale character piece that genuinely likes its protagonists: an overweight teen girl and an overage delivery guy. But for all its quirky touches, the comedy cleaves to formula in its depiction of how they challenge and change each other. show more

    Christopher delivers cutesy jabber and one-note characters, as oily and devoid of substance as... well, you know. show more
