Sappy drivel with a dash of cringeworthy
11 February 2016 | by See all my reviews

Some movies are so bad, I feel embarrassed even watching them alone. Safelight is one of those movies.

Most of the acting was horrible, (although the two leads were usually adequate) the cookie-cutter characters were shallow and unlikely and the script was absolutely AWUL. The story was boring; It was hard to care what happened or who it happened to. The scenes of family members fighting were cringingly melodramatic. The scene with the mom cackling with her girlfriends at the bar made me want to stick my face under a lawnmower. What gang of idiots WROTE this?!

I have never posted a review before but I feel a personal responsibility to warn you of this train wreck. Unless you have a morbid appreciation for terrible movies, AVOID. This movie is unbelievably, painfully, dangerously, SO embarrassingly bad.
