It all begins with Lily, a lonely oddball and fast-food waitress who happens to be a hopeless romantic. Then there's Jarrod, the man of Lily's dreams, another lonely oddball and video game clerk, who has spent the last decade plotting ultimate vengenance on a bully from his high school past. When these two connect at a "dress as your favorite animal" party, it's a match that seems made in outcast heaven, but when Lily decides to risk everything for love, her hopes are nearly dashed. In summary: "There's someone out there for everyone". Recommended. BTW, the R rating is due to language, but even that doesn't deserve an R. The New Zealand rating is "Recommended for mature audiences" which translates to mean age 16+.
