Weak, Pointless, Unintentionally Funny, and BORING
20 September 2007 | by (Olympia, WA) – See all my reviews

I'm not sure how, but this is supposed to be a sequel to a movie I've never seen called "The Boy Who Cried B*tch". I suppose that's what the mother character's spoken prologue was supposed to be about. That doesn't really matter much because this movie is essentially plot-less.

A friend of mine got this DVD handed to him free at Ozfest so at least I don't have the embarrassment of having picked out this awful movie to see. We both went into it cold, expecting nothing (there was no description on the box). Bad sound and static shots delivered us the makings of a story about a wealthy family troubled with the problem of an oldest son burdened with "borderline multiple personality disorder". What this disorder means for the movie is that the son, Stephen, acts like a jerk all the time, is violent, and blames his mother for everything.

The movie soon falls into a predictable pattern of showing Stephen abuse his mother (and women in general) and being put into institutions, occasionally escaping them, until he turns 18 and is dropped on his unprepared family again. The actor playing the lead is 26 at the time and looks it, and even if we believe he is 18 the title "Adolescent Years" seems a bit off the mark. His two younger brothers, both in their teens (I think they were supposed to be anyway) are 2 dimensional and only serve to pad out the time. The younger one is an apologist for Stephen and the older is a cocaine addicted art student.

The boredom is broken up by occasional unintentional stretches of humor (particularly when Stephen is messing up his mother's room and tries to knock things off the top of the dresser). The dialog is mostly dull repetitive swearing. The attempts at making things dramatic or interesting all fell flat. The humorous title turns out to be the best part and even then it's appropriate considering how often Stephen says the "b" word. Either way it wasn't worth the long slow 90 minute sit.

Don't watch this.
