Rather annoying movie
11 October 2014 | by (Dallas, Texas, USA) – See all my reviews

I did not like this movie. Maybe I mean it was too juvenile for me. After all, I am 66 so that is 'possible'. :) But I WANTED to like the movie, because I liked the male lead. Unfortunately he must have picked his latest BFF to be the female lead, because otherwise I cannot figure out WHY she was the female lead. She was not talented, only 'a bit cute'. She couldn't rap. I do think rap is good only for when you are vomiting, but nevertheless there are certain raps that I 'almost' like, but not hers. She was like some Canadian townie trying to do karaoke. As for acting, she couldn't act her way out of a wet paper sack. I mean the guy is an insurance adjuster, but clearly he doesn't know ANYTHING AT ALL about that job, because frankly it is a VERY interesting job. My husband is an insurance adjuster and he is not only the sexiest man I've ever known (and I've known a lot of sexy men), he is also the most intelligent man I know (that's not really saying much since most men are rather stupid creatures after all). The movie is still running on my notepad right now (a roku channel) and the female lead is again trying to act. hmmm. Her arms are flabby (mine are not and I think women who have flabby arms are too damn lazy). Now they are having sex on their first 24 hours together. Kids, this is 2014, not 1967. There is no such thing as 'free love' AND today, unlike 1967, there are incurable forms of STDs. Okay, now I am firmly convinced she must be the producer/lead male actor's girlfriend, because she just CANNOT act, and there is nothing 'appealing' about her AT ALL. Really if you are gonna make someone a 'love interest' at LEAST make her (or HIM) someone that the viewer's imagination WANTS to be with. sigh. Oh well, time to get back to the second revisions to my third book now.
