Storyline

Sol Goode, a charismatic L.A. twenty-something, has always relied on charm, good looks, and fast talk to glide through life. But his luck may have run out; faced with eviction from his house, losing his car, and the threat of having to find a real job, Sol realizes that maybe the life he's been leading is no longer making him happy. Through this self-examination, he finds that being a womanizing hustler is an unfulfilling life and he will truly be happy with his best friend Chloe, who, unfortunately, knows him all too well. The result is a wickedly funny, heart-felt story as Sol tries to win her over. Written by Anonymous

Yeah well... not bad but bah...
25 June 2013 | by (Quebec) – See all my reviews

Get a hot chicks with cleavage on the cover? Check. Get a bunch of known actors to play small parts like Carmen Electra? Check. Trick the audience into thinking they are gonna watch a wild ride of a raunchy movie... yes... check. This movie poses as one of those movie where you are expecting lots of tits and ass, beer drinking and a bunch of juvenile act, but in the end you will get some moral about life isn't all about parties and scoring chicks. The formula has been used a lot yes, but usually it gives one cool party movie and i like them. One name get into mind... Van Wilder... one of the best movie of that kind which was very funny.

But the problem with "Sol Goode" is that it actually feel like a rip off of the core of Van Wilder, without really the fun side too much. This movie try to score a few joke here and there, and some characters are a bit funny, but at no point i really felt for any of them(except maybe Chloe a bit) or what would happen to them. Jamie Kennedy's character sure bring a few comic relief but not enough to get me interest much into his story.

Its kinda trying to be serious, yet putting a few jokes, but the jokes never get the effect they where looking for and the serious side kinda miss emotions and really getting to feel those characters. The best friend Cooper was just forgivable, and made almost no point in the story, and the only dramatic performance i actually like was the one of the actress playing Chloe who actually was cute enough both in look and acting to get me interest in her.

But its one of those movie where you seem to just go trough the motion and nothing really happen for a long part of the movie and the synopsis actually is not that much accurate.

Even in the "cute" romance movie category i felt this movie took like an hour before having you really get interest into anyone too much. So well what can i say... it was not awful or anything... it was just not memorable, a really forgivable romantic comedy that i think even your girlfriend would not really get into.

I feel this movie either needed to get more raunchy, or more emotional, but it stayed in the middle and missed bot lines... sadly.
