Boring to watch and listen to
18 October 2011 | by (Montreal, Canada) – See all my reviews

This movie is very similar to the Romantics. You have a bunch of people gather and talk. Nothing really ever happens. Here you have three kids. The main character's brother was bi-polar and drowned at the beach after his prom, but nobody really knows why it happened. The young brother, his best friend and ex girlfriend gather later and talk about it. They decide to go out and buy drinks, go to their school during the night and throw a party to commemorate the prom.

Now we're supposed to believe that in one single night, they manage to break into the school and decorate the whole auditorium into a prom setting, and nobody catches them. Talk about unrealistic in a realistic movie. The acting from the three main characters is okay, but the dialogues are boring and feel forced. From the movie's synopsis I was thinking something would eventually happen, but nothing ever happens. They just talk for all of the movie, and have nothing really interesting to say, except dwell on the past. In the end, the 'plot twist' is just not shocking. It's like, "oh. okay." I couldn't really care less about the characters. They never even tell you why the brother hates his younger sister who has a crush on the main character.

There is no big revelation, no character development, no explanation of the past. Loss of time. Just a drama that feels like a theatrical play.
