Choppy
26 December 2016 | by cekadahSee all my reviews

I found this movie to be too episodic to be entertaining. There is Sunny working at the failing bowling alley, there is Sunny dealing with her dying father, there is Sunny in her empty relationship with her boyfriend (which by-the-way the two appear totally mismatched), there is Sunny the ace bowling expert, and then there is Sunny getting involved with an old high school flame.

The only thing we really know about Sunny is that she had been the high school valedictorian and she dropped out of college to care for her sick father. In my opinion not one of the characters are developed enough for the viewer to actually care about. There are other reviews here that praise this movie but for me it came across as a shallow experience.

Maybe it was the editing that made the movie choppy. It's not a bad movie! I just couldn't get involved.
