Compelling in its cliches
17 October 2002 | by See all my reviews

While ultimately a standard expose on the rich and decadent lifestyles of disaffected youth in an affluent environment that at times resembles a poor facsimile of Bret Easton Ellis' Less Than Zero, "Bliss" nevertheless comes through with some unique characters and solid acting. Perry is a far cry from Dylan McKay and once again shows his talents far outweigh the gloriously contrived 90210. Pic partially follows the downward spiral of his character who was given everything and still takes it for granted, especially his friendship with the Tim Owens character. Oddly a lot of the actors haven't done anything since this movie, which is surprising since some seemed to have legitimate talent. A good early 90s teen movie that left me satisfied but not entirely happy.
