Annoying teenage movie flop
26 May 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

You can tell that this movie is going to be annoying right from the beginning. Not much buildup to make the viewers care about any of the characters. Do teenage kids really put their lives and future on the line to help out one of their friends' parent who's in dire need? Maybe. But this movie is very unconvincing of this notion.

What I can't stand is over acting and meaningless distractions that are meant to be funny. It's just annoying and questions any hint of realism. The part that did it for me was when the wannabe good actor with green hair gets distracted by a cute bank teller rather than deliver a crucial item of their plan. Blah. I turned it off. No need to watch further.

And I did enjoy movies like Sugar & Spice, Bring It on and even Stick It. All off the wall teenage movies that are charming and funny. This movie, Graduation, is a total mess, lacking in neither of these qualities.
