Ho-hum... a decent effort
31 July 2003 | by (BC, Canada) – See all my reviews

American Boyfriends is a film that is easily forgotten, which is a sad but true aspect of a lot of films that viewers entail. The problem here is that there is just nothing to keep the viewer into the film, and make them stay completely raptured.

The story consists of a young Canadian girl named Sandy (Margaret Langrick) from Penticton who moves to the Coast to pursue her studies at Simon Fraser University. She soon meets her new "best friend" Lizzie (Delia Breit), and the two hit it off quite quickly. Soon enough, Sandy's friends from home come to visit, also making stops to search for wedding dresses for one of the girls. Before you know it, all four of the girls are off to Portland to visit Sandy's cousin Butch's wedding. The rest is just pure spontaneity, and seems a bit far fetched of what two fresh university students would do, but the preposterousness was probably intended by the director.

Don't get me wrong: American Boyfriends is not a bad film, it's just not great. The acting is decent, the storyline is a bit lacking, but in general, it's just one of those films you probably won't remember you watched until you begin to watch it again.
