Kinda fun.
26 March 2009 | by (Happy Land, who lives in a Gumdrop House on Lolly Pop Lane) – See all my reviews

Story revolves around two girls who after meeting each other and becoming BFF's in one day, agree that having fun is the best and most important part of life. So, they hit up arcades, act silly and kill an old lady. Huh? Yep. Well, they get caught and the story focuses on them dealing with their current confinement.

The film is basically a two person character study. I keep on seeing reviewers rave about the acting. Sure it's okay I suppose, but it's pretty clear these girls were given the green light to just go nuts. Not incredibly impressive if you ask me. Don't get me wrong, they did a fine job, but nothing crazy good. The movie could only succeed if these two delivered quality acting jobs...and with the green light, they were given that opportunity, which they took advantage of, and pulled it off.

The flick though, isn't that entertaining. Even though the girls do a fine job acting, the characters aren't very interesting, and the scenes kinda boring. Also the writing is very up and down. Scenes like when they were discussing their sexual past was right on, but scenes when talking with the counselors, were almost boring. Fun plays out in a back in forth type way with the "here and now" and flashbacks. Weird thing about that though, the flashbacks are in color and the scenes of them in their current situation is in black in white. I thought that was a nice touch.

Fun managed to succeed in being a moderately realistic take on teenage nihilism. It's a pretty unknown flick that should get more talk, because most of the people who have seen it enjoyed it. If you enjoy serious drama or films about troubled youth, then you should definitely check it out.
