Summary: G.B.F. is highly entertaining, the concept is original and sometimes awkward to watch, though it definitely could be a deeper film. 67/100 (B-)

In G.B.F., social warfare erupts when three high school clique queens battle for supremacy: drama diva Caprice, Mormon princess 'Shley and blonde fashionista Fawcett. When unassuming Tanner is outed, he finds himself cast as the hottest new teen-girl accessory: The Gay Best Friend. The clique queens immediately pounce and makeover Tanner into their ideal arm candy, forcing him to choose between popularity and the true friends - including his own B.F.F. Brent - that he's leaving behind. G.B.F. has an interesting and original premise, totally deserves its R rating, because it has too many sexual references. The film is funny, the plot is original and the acting is good, though sometimes the characterization is cliché and it has some surreal situations.

G.B.F. has a mostly unknown cast, but there are actually some famous young actresses like Sasha Pieterse (Pretty Little Liars), Molly Tarlov (Awkward) and the actress/singer Joanna "JoJo" Levesque (RV, Aquamarine), they all are very likable and i'll be sincere, i saw this film only for Joanna's performance, i'm a huge fan of her. The film is pretty good actually and is not predictable at all. I like its execution, the first 15 minutes are straight to the point, also the whole first act is kinda sad and deep sometimes, the rest of the film is more about jokes and funny stuff. The film at the third act tries to be deep again, but it feels unrealistic and ineffective. Some sexual scenes in the film are very awkward to watch, so if you are not familiar with this gay stuff, don't see it. The script is refreshing, but sometimes all the situations throughout the film are very surreal and unbelievable.

G.B.F. has its funny parts, some of them very funny, i enjoyed it so much. The movie leverages its uncommon premise. You care for the main character, he's shy and likable. G.B.F. is like a very good T.V. film, you will laugh and it's enjoyable but unfortunately it's just a simple little film (though it's not forgettable at all). I know that this is a very low budget film, i respect that and i enjoyed it, but overall it could be deeper and more dramatic. The script is laughable but it works, it's very funny and effective. Sometimes in the second act the direction is messy and the relation between the characters is confusing. But overall i recommend it for people with average expectations.
