Screenplay: 3/10 Awkward. The writer just felt lost and unsure of himself. It's one of those things where he seems capable, but botched it anyway. So many things could have caused this, right down to him just being a lousy writer.
Casting: 0/10 Absolutely nothing redeeming about the casting. Zero chemistry, and actors that look far too uniformly plastic. 1 or 2 model-looking actors is fine, but when everyone looks cut out of a magazine, there's absolutely nothing to relate to. Let's not mention that the pairing of actors for the couple was a joke.
Cinematography: 3/10 Very by-the-books shots and zero creativity. So much opportunity here to create some redeeming quality by having some stylish framing, but nope. Nada. Nothing. 3 points for "just doing your job".
Grading: 6/10 Made this a category simply because this was the one thing I thought was decent in this film. The colors had a very natural feel and didn't come across as overly-stylized, which many good movies seem to over-do. But still, points are lost, because the colors did tend to beg for something more. What we get is something a bit too vibrant and "normal", like the way you'd grade a comedy film.
Directing: 1/10 Director, you alone could have saved so much of everything else's inadequacies. You were there, every step of the way, approving what was going on and guiding it along. What are you doing?! 1 point for getting the gig.
Sound: 6/10 Again, just "doing your job". The mix is good and well, but nothing really stuck out. Nothing was particularly bad though.
Music: 5/10 Starts off far too melodically heavy, easily to the point of feeling corny and forced. Later on, the composer seems to realize he should tone it down a bit. But the early portions of the film, especially, are a mess. That's significant, because this is when you're making your first impressions.
Now, I don't know who really had the biggest hand in making this suck so much. Was it an issue with producers? Did you guys know this wasn't good at all, but just wanted to "make a movie"? Or did you really think this was good in some way?
And who thought it was a good idea to give the biological father that stupid look with his hair combed back?
