Mildly entertaining, but despite quick pacing of scenes and dialogue, the story doesn’t really go anywhere.

Saoirse turns in a very natural performance, except for the accent. It’s passable but generally sounded a little forced and overenunciated. She almost pulled a muscle in her face trying to pronounce some of those words. Her character is charming, outspoken, articulate, misunderstood, self-righteous, and romantic, just like Lisa Simpson.
