School is over and summer has begun in the dead-end seaside town of Rainmouth. While Jamie's friends seem to be happy working in the local pie factory by day and looking for sex by night, Jamie is bored out of his mind, running his pot-head mother's B&B. He's desperate to get out of there. But when he meets beautiful, smart and sexy American traveler Juliana at a party, he's smitten - the world is not so small after all. But soon after Juliana's arrival, strange things start happening. One of the local teens goes missing at a party. Then, another. Jamie is warned by an enigmatic stranger that a werewolf is in town - and preying solely on virgin flesh! The only way to be safe seems to be to pop your cherry. (But that can't be true... can it?) As the locals are picked off one by one, the boys fear that a werewolf is indeed after them. And for all their talk, it turns out none of them have ever had sex before... Pretty soon, everyone is dying to get laid.Written by
Saw this today, and I REALLY wanted to like it. I wasn't expecting much, but I was hoping for a nice surprise. As it was, I came away reasonably satisfied but disappointed in equal measure.
Firstly, the comedy. Absolutely DREADFUL. It's like the most obvious attempt at ripping off The Inbetweeners ever (which wasn't exactly cutting edge anyway). In all honesty I could have come up with a better script myself. It was juvenile, sad and basically lazy. I didn't laugh once, and I am no hater of toilet humour.
Luckily it was just about saved by the plot, which at the very least kept my attention. Whilst it sounds on paper like a ridiculous spoof of Twilight, it was occasionally captivating and the ending was a satisfying finalé to an otherwise forgettable film.
Wooden acting all round with the exception of the excellent Jessica Szohr (who deserves a lot better than this) and of course Timothy Spall, whom I was extremely surprised to see here.
In all honesty I don't have much to recommend since it is a cheap rip-off on Inbetweeners and Twilight combined, but it was a nice enough day out and it was at least better than the Keith Lemon Film that I had the misfortune of watching last month.
