The first thing I noticed about the movie Some Days Are Better Than Others, is that no one's  seemed to have heard of it. When I brought the screener disc over to a friend's house for movie night it was met with, "huh?" and "ohhhh, I think I remember hearing about that" but no one had any idea what the movie was about, and you know what, we kind of still don't.
