Even the rating of 5.7 for this film is a little too much. It is very poorly made as there is no premise, no action and no goal. Just a mixture of showing completely irrelevant characters living their lives, without much action. I almost felt that it was a horrible attempt of trying to compare itself to Pulp Fiction, of course was nowhere close to the classic.
I wonder why is the movie called ''Garden Party'', yes, there was a garden party, which was only showed for like 30 seconds and was absolutely irrelevant to the film. Because of the song that kid made? Anyways, not enough to name the movie after that.
Since it failed to make me care about the characters, i could not find it appealing to me in any way and got bored very quickly. This movie is only 88 minutes and that just shows you, that no matter how short the movie is it can be extremely boring if there is no action and no goal.
The script is just weak, hence making the characters not look good even if they were not performing horribly. Anyways, dull conversations, no goal, no action, weak plot - boring.
