A box office surprise with a nobody cast turns out to be an entertaining comedy. Brittany Forgler is a hilarious, hot mess of a party girl, but at 27, her late-night adventures and early-morning walks of shame are starting to catch up to her. When she stops by a Yelp-recommended doctor’s office in an attempt to score some Adderall, she finds herself slapped with a prescription she never wanted. Forced to face reality for the first time in a long time, Brittany laces up her Converse shoes and runs one sweaty block. The next day, she runs two. Soon she runs a mile. Brittany finally has direction—but is she on the right path?

Brittany not only goes places you won’t be expecting but it also manages to be simultaneously sympathetic and unsentimental, a picture with a laugh-out-loud sense of humor that can be as real as hell when it needs to be.” — Kenneth Turan, LA Times
“[Jillian Bell] knows her way around a wisecrack. She also plays Brittany’s transformation subtly and intelligently, without courting our pity or even our approval.” — Stephanie Zacharek, TIME Magazine
“A whip-smart comedy that manages to deliver genuinely funny uplift without ever swerving away from its own dark side.” — Leah Greenblatt, Entertainment Weekly
