The Hillz is a surreal look at four teenage boys coming of age. This slice-of-life comedic drama is set in an affluent neighborhood of present-day America. The story chronicles these teenagers' pursuit of respect, friends, girls, and the almighty dollar (aka status). After a year away at college, our hero, Steve returns home to find his friends haven't changed, but his old neighborhood is remarkably different. A stellar athlete, Steve is on a high from recently winning the College World Series. He's got his future and he knows it: girls, money and a sure top-ten pick in the Major League draft. The only thing missing is the only thing he can't have: the gorgeous Heather Smith. On a mission to win Heather over, Steve finds himself up against Heather's seemingly perfect boyfriend, Todd. To make matters worse, Steve discovers his beautiful suburban hills have been turned into an ultra-violent drug zone, controlled by his own high school friends. The ruthless gang is led by the sadistic ... Written by
Absolutely one of the worst films I've ever had the displeasure of paying for. So you've got a Friday night, nothing to do, you and your friends want to find something cheesy to watch and make fun of. It's sad when you look at a cover of a film and the biggest star is a woman who has made her career out of the Paparazzi and sex. Not to mention someone else was off MTV's Undressed, I believe? Pathetic. We had to rent it. But it was a lesson learned. No acting capability what so ever. How dare they compare any of this film to Clockwork Orange. It's not like any art student will be even looking at the back of this film. (Well, I did, for kicks). The gun shots are Power-pointed in. The brutality is just ridiculous. No one can act. I swear. Even the tears by one of the characters at the end look like inhaling a fowl odor. The music, well, was decent in some parts. Sounded a little Portishead, but that doesn't excuse the horrible violin plucks that serve no meaning for half of the film. Paris. Enough said. The story after 30 minutes you feel as though you've been in for an hour. We cried and laughed our way through. The worst is the freeze frame segment where they introduce our soulless characters by printing their names on the screen in bad font. Bad scene transitions. Bad dialogue (what's with the tampon/period jokes?). I'm sorry but this is just so bad, I had to watch Tori Amos, "Sleeps with Butterflies," video to get it out of my head and mouth.
