I have to admit, I was not expecting to enjoy this movie.  We landed on seeing it mostly because it fell perfectly in our strict time frame we had available.  I'm not a huge fan of scary movies, and this one had jump scares a plenty.  However, I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed it.  

The main character starts out as a rather annoying, spoiled sorority girl, but we get to see her grow over the course of the movie.  As she relives the same day over and over she learns more about herself, who she wants to be, and, of course, falls in love.  This scary murder mystery action movie has a gooey rom-com center.  It also had a surprising amount of humor, halfway through I found myself literally laughing out loud; my favorite part was when she decided to leave the dorm naked and just walk around entirely in the buff.  When there are no consequences (and you look that good), why not? 

What really made me like the movie however was the twist at the end.  I truly did not see it coming, and I love it when a movie manages to surprise me.  I felt it was well written, well acted, and overall way more fun than expected!
