Goofs

At the end of the movie, just before the credits, Meghan and Gordon are walking east on Sunset Blvd across the 101 towards Home Depot. After they kiss and the camera goes to an overhead shot and pans out, they are now walking west on Sunset, across the same bridge, and are walking towards a Denny's. The street sign pointing to 101 North also changes to 101 South from one shot to another. See more »

Walk of Shame is a mediocre comedy rescued to some point by the performances
3 September 2014 | by ArgemalucoSee all my reviews

Walk of Shame belongs to the sub-genus of films which usurp the clichés of the modern vulgar comedy and bring them a female treatment, something which has worked well in some occasions (Bridesmaids, The To Do List) and fatally failed in other ones (The Heat, Bad Teacher). Walk of Shame is on some intermediate point, because the solid performances compensate on some way a weak and unimaginative screenplay which loses many opportunities to exploit the stereotypical "walk of shame" situation. I would say that Walk of Shame is kinda like an adult version of Adventures in Babysitting, because both films portray a woman completely outside her element who must face the challenges of the big city (and, as a "coincidence", these challenges also include criminals, identity confusion and improvised songs). The whole cast from Walk of Shame makes a competent work, but the film's strongest point is Elizabeth Banks, who has been stealing scenes in an uncountable number of films and TV series (specially, in Pitch Perfect, 30 Rock and Slither) for many years. Banks takes the maximum advantage of the predictable situations and humorous clichés she's assigned, proving that, yes, there are occasions in which a good actor can rescue a mediocre screenplay to some point. Besides, she's well supported by the rest of the cast: Gillian Jacobs is as enthusiastic and credible in her role as she always is; James Marsden makes an adequate work as the gallant; and Kevin Nealon, Ethan Suplee, Sarah Wright and Alphonso McAuley make a good work in their brief roles. I don't know if the humor from Walk of Shame exceeds the line of bad taste with some racist and sexist jokes; I wouldn't have minded if they had been very good, but they aren't, and they end up feeling like lazy attempts to bring an audacious and subversive edge to a story which didn't need it. And, talking about sexism, I have to mention how well Banks looks with the yellow dress she wears in this movie; my apologies for pointing that out, and I won't say more. So, Walk of Shame is a mediocre comedy which kept me moderately entertained mainly because of the performances, and I can give a slight recommendation to it because of that.
