This was another movie that failed to live up to its premise or to properly explain what they were going for.
Sadie is a teen girl who seems to suffer from an obsessive type of anxiety disorder that is never explored or explained and only hinted very briefly at in the beginning of the movie. If you remove that disorder from the story, it seems silly and doesn't make much sense.
Because of her fixation, she does a report about natural disasters that turns into her researching the apocalypse. She's convinced that the apocalypse will happen in 30 days (when the movie begins) and has created a bucket list (which she insists is not a bucket list because she has no intention of dying and will survive said apocalypse) of the things she would like to do before the rest of humanity is gone. Like skip class, sneak into a bar, kiss a boy. That sort of thing.
The problem is that her hysteria and compulsive behaviors (again, not addressed in the movie) cause her to lose her best friend since childhood, Brennan. Mending their friendship is also on the bucket list.
This movie must have been filmed in Canada, because half the cast are Degrassi alumni. There's the guy who plays Zig (Jack in this movie), the one who played Eli (Teddy) and Jane (Sadie's teacher/only friend Connie). Teddy sports a truly terrible British accent (that I had a hard time placing because Sadie's mom has an Australian accent so for a little while I was confused, like, is this an Australian movie? What's happening?). Jack, the romantic love interest, is delightful. I love him on Degrassi, and I loved him in this movie. Charm and cuteness for days. He takes a sudden interest in Sadie (which he explains later on during the movie in a highly romantic scene) and is determined to help her with her list. (Including the kissing a boy part.)
Lots of cute romance, lots of funny dialogue, lots of good acting in this. But it falls short because the movie itself was all over the place. Did it want to be a quirky "Juno" type movie? Or a teen prepper movie? Or a romance? Or addressing how an apocalypse is appropriate given that teens always feel like their world is ending every time something bad happens? About mental illness? The importance of best friends? It tries too hard to be too many things and it makes it feel disjointed, and as if it had the potential to be so much more but just didn't make it.
It was an okay movie. Not one I'd recommend.
