Time Out says

Red-haired Lolly (Mayron, who co-wrote with Adams) and bleached-blonde Mattie (Slater) dress loudly and needle each other's neuroses. They busk for rent money, but squander it on hash delivered by streetwise dudette Diane (Devine), who leaves a mysterious green bag containing $1 million in their Manhattan pad. Threatened with eviction and then burgled, they're soon dipping into the stashed cash - and for less pressing purposes, like therapeutic shopping. Trouble starts when Diane returns, ruthless hoods on her heels. For the most part, Adams' debut is a lot of fun; she directs with a feel for the state of suspended adolescence induced by flat-sharing, and with an irreverent but affectionate eye for bohemian Manhattan that's supported by some intriguingly eccentric peripheral characters, notably the sublime Brennan's brassy landlady.
