I need so many synonyms for "cliche," "tacky," and "terrible."
Yes, 1 out of 10.
I totally agree with so far the only review for this...piece. They rated this 4/10. Far too kind.
First of all, the first seconds of the film introduces one of the girls and she's bored buying an expensive condo, and shuts out her squealing impressed friends with headphones blaring music, and sunglasses. Behind her sunglasses, life turns into a nightclub, although this is her imagination, but it's used as the opening credits, and in such a tacky way over a background of badly dancing women to horrible amateur club music, and I'm already rolling my eyes and gagging.
I told myself, "I will know this film is bad if they don't connect this to the opening scene by having her snap back to reality, removing her headphones and sunglasses." They did not, and that's when I realized (two minutes into the film) what this film was: a cheap, empty excuse for female eye candy and male posers, who all confused flamboyance and "pick-up artistry" on gold-digging drunken women for being cool and sexy, which is a risky aim because it won't work if you the viewer don't find the people attractive nor charismatic, since that's what this film poorly decided to center itself around. But if you have an Asian fetish and don't care at ALL about a good script, an interesting plot, or talent, then this film is for you.
Also, about 10 minutes in I see the scene where a party girl is with her friend outside a club and the police intervene. I was already in the process of finding the words to criticize this film when I see all I needed to see: one of the girls was wearing weave, and this is expected among people who live to party and get by on their looks. The problem is, I SAW her weave! Her hair extension lining!! It was an entire row of stitched in blonde hair and I saw it! Cheap lighting and bad angling and terrible film crew and bad casting! And why didn't they step in to fix it?! Because there was 0 standard to this film! It's an excuse for cheap quick cash for everyone involved! I've seen porn produced, performed, and directed better than this LOL!
This film sucks, simple as that. If you want to see a film about hot young party people and their bouts with love, and in big shiny Asian cities, watch Vortex of Love 2013! It's from Tokyo, Japan. It's way better! The people are actually good looking and stylish! The relationships are actually interesting! The script is actually funny and engaging! The plot actually flows and connects! And it never once glamourised clubbing, materialistic, shallow, promiscuous, obsessively westernized POSERS like THIS film did! It actually focused and commentated on their personalities, "bro code (when males help each other deceive women before and after sleeping with them)," and their love lives behind their extravagant personas, behind their closed doors, where it all matters. SO much so that it admittedly was a bit claustrophobic because it filmed the entire movie in their apartments, never showing their appalling antics on the outside street and passing it off as interesting and romantic, like this film did.
This film was like a really bad soap opera mixed into a really bad and long pop ballad music video. This film looked like everyone met at a low budget photo shoot and said, "hey, let's make a film!" lol. It wasn't sexy, or funny, but it was insultingly bad and evermore boring as it went along. I mean I've never seen a film be so cliché yet still unrealistic, and people be so sexual, risqué and dolled-up yet still unattractive, at the same time.
