Not worth watching...
27 October 2011 | by (NY) – See all my reviews

"Night Club" is the most awkwardly edited and filmed movie I have ever been forced to sit through. The plot line, about three friends who work in a nursing home to turn it into a terrible night club, is ridiculous and ill-thought out. It seemed overall that there was no point or main message to carry out. The action and events moved so cripplingly slow that the audience could have easily lost interest within the first ten minutes.

Though there were different levels of acting in this movie, it could have improved if the director guided the actors better or paid more attention to the dialogue. The dialogue ruined the movie when the actors kept on overly stressing clichéd humor, and there was almost no music or sounds at all. Only when the story moves outside is there any kind of background noises or melodies at all. Plus the camera direction was amateurish and too shaky, and all mainly composed of close-ups, which made it easy to become bored with the activity going on on screen.

So in summary, this movie didn't work because the thematic elements clashed or yielded adverse, unintentional bad effects to the eyes and ears of the audience. The misguided acting, dialouge, editing, plot line, and lack of sounds were not pleasing. No wonder why the picture didn't make it to the big screen, or even why I didn't sit through it the whole way through.
