Quotes

Mr. McTavish: James, I'm sure in your eyes, there are good reasons why you're risking your future for this person, but you have to understand... if she was worth the trouble, she would have the character or the insight to know the position that she's putting you in. But she's not doing that, is she?
James: She's had a hard time.
Mr. McTavish: You've had a hard time too. But you fought through it. That's the point here. There are people in this world who, for whatever reasons, have so little inside themselves that all they can do...

Whirlygirl
21 February 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

"Whirlygirl" is a unique film in one major respect. The misadventures of university student James (Julian Morris) are not that special. Some of the banter between James and his university friends is fun to watch, but those scenes are few and far in between. Instead the film gambles on the appeal of Monet Mazur's main character, the mysterious "Whirlygirl," who is supposed to be so enchanting and irresistible to us (as she is to James) that we can excuse and even overlook the lack of plot in this entire film. Whirlygirl is meant to represent every guy's image of an irresistible beauty from high school or university who makes our hearts flutter and every moment of our existence electrifying and profoundly meaningful. This film's main ambition and its great gamble is to accomplish that very feat with Monet Mazur's "Whirlygirl."

Yet the gamble, for the most part, does not pay off. Monet Mazur gives only a capable performance as the "Whirlygirl," when she needs to give us an extraordinary one that matches up to her character's legendary reputation as a mysterious, intriguing and enchanting beauty. For a film that relies so much on character for its appeal, Monet Mazur's "Whirlygirl" is surprisingly lacking in the kind of character that can leave us with a lasting impression. This failure can be attributed partly to Monet Mazur's only capable acting (when she really needed to be extraordinary) and also to the fact that the script does not give her much to do.

Perhaps if another actress was given the part of the "Whirlygirl" and if the screenplay writers gave more thought to further developing the "Whirlygirl" character, then this film would actually be good. Instead, "Whirlygirl" has the potential of a great film, but falls short of realizing it.
