Storyline

Two close sisters, Myah and Beth, struggle with their differences in life and in the older sister's mentally abusive marriage, until the complacent lives of Beth and their married friends are shaken to the core by a tragedy that they are all forced to face. Complacent is a portrait of the middle American lifestyle. The 9 to 5 at a desk job, cookie-cutter homes with manicured lawns, golf three times a week, Florida vacation each year with the family. Only problem.... No one loves the other.... No one strives for more.... No one sees outside his or her own front yard.... They just coast... Question is, can you really go through life like this without deteriorating from the inside? Myah decides that you can't, you have to do more, want more, care more and it sets off a chain of events within the group of friends that is at times amusing and at times heartbreaking, but eventually fatal in both reality and metaphor.

Complacent: an accurate description of this film's effort
1 June 2011 | by frostyvilleSee all my reviews

IMDb reports the film's budget was 70K, which seems mighty impressive to have been completed for so cheap, but after seeing it, it makes sense, even with a moderate amount of B/C-list celebrity star power.

Overall, the most compelling aspect of the story is whether or not it will get any worse. Each role is so cliché, and it's hard to become attached to any of the characters. Even the children's acting is poor.

Certainly the writing is the worst part of it all. No time was put into the script and I'm not sure how so many familiar faces decided it was a good idea to sign on for this project.

I watched it on Netflix, and I suggest you do not do the same.
