How many ways can a movie fail?
2 April 1999 | by See all my reviews

Your Friends and Neighbors failed in just about every way a movie can fail. The characters were uninteresting and obnoxious. Normally I can deal with a movie in which I dislike every one of the characters, but in this case I just wanted them all to die. I know that sounds harsh, but you'll feel that way too if you have to sit through the thing. There's nothing wrong with the characters being outright malicious, or even spineless (though I don't think the characters were intended to be portrayed so), but what I can't stand is two dimensional characters. I don't know if it was the bad acting or bad writing which was responsible for this, but certainly this movie had an abundance of both. Well, when all else fails, enjoy the dialog right? This brings me to my other big problem with this movie. Basically it was very frank sex discussion mixed in with dialog that could have been written by just about any 8th grader. Grown people just do not go around talking like horny junior highschoolers. As a matter of fact, grown people do not go around acting like horny junior highschoolers either. The movie was entirely too long and had way too much dead space. The script was terrible, the characters were terrible, the dialog was terrible, the plot only served to hilight the complete lack of substance to the movie, and I just wanted it to end. If you ever find yourself faced with a choice between Chinese water torture or Your Friends and Neighbors, I strongly urge you not to pick the movie.
