some rambly thoughts on happiest season (with spoilers) under cut:
i've also seen a lot of dislike for harper, which i kinda get (it was frustrating to watch at times), but you can clearly tell she's going through some stuff and i don't hate that they ended up together (which a lot of people apparently disagree with). I think i also wouldn't mind if they ended up breaking up.
the only thing i am very glad for is that abby and riley never got together. (which is also an unpopular opinion ig lol) Like i get it, aubrey plaza is hot, and riley was definitely into abby, but i cannot handle cheating lol. and even if abby had broken up with riley first it just feels wrong you know?
i really liked the speech about how everyones story is different and im so glad they really emphasized how harpers journey also was valid, even if she handled it really poorly. at the same time, the way it was totally ok for abby to want to be with someone who's ready, was good. i liked that.
ultimately i liked the movie. it made me reallt frustrated and angry at times, but there were a lot of nice moments too, and i liked the ending. I feel like i would've maybe liked it more if i knew what i was going to first though.
