Unoriginal Catfish
22 June 2014 | by lumacentedSee all my reviews

I wanted to leave within the first 10 minutes. The movie drags on and on, extremely slowly. I only stayed because I was with other friends and also because I knew the director, the actress, and the production cast were in the audience and I did not want to disrespect them. But wow, this was dreadful. The movie honestly could have been summed up into a 10 minute short story. I don't want to give out any spoilers but... He basically finds out serious information within the first 15 minutes of the movie, but he goes through unnecessary loops throughout the whole movie to confirm what was already known. Honestly, this movie reminds me of what happens when you give a privileged kid a lot of money and he makes a crappy hipster movie. It was long, awkward, lots of forced improv acting, and completely unoriginal. Also, did Apple sponsor the movie? I saw the Apple brand at least 25 times throughout the film.
