How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
I wanted to like this a lot more than I did. I thought the stories were cute and most women could relate to them. My main issue was with two of the characters. Present Kate (who served as sort of a narrator) basically screamed the whole time. I thought what she was saying was important to understand the movement of the story - but did not understand why the actress felt the need to scream everything that needed required urgency. It got really annoying within oh, about, 5 minutes. I also COULD NOT STAND the "docent" character. She came across as preachy, snotty and just....unlikable. I loved the stories. I loved the Past Kate character and all of the dates (played by the same actor). I loved how Present Kate added insight into the scenes (just not the way she delivered her lines). I just felt the screaming and the preaching from the other 2 characters really overshadowed everything else.
