Lint filter cotton candy.
27 March 2019 | by troy-boultonSee all my reviews

For all its attempted fluffy lightheartedness, the No Kiss List fails to make much of an impression as it meanders its way into an attempted resemblance of a deeper coming of age tale. The leads' faux campy-cutsie friendship feels hollow and contrived, and their relationship's exposition suffers from poor cinematic cadence, and a gaping lack believability. Naomi is painted as a character who is so selfish, possessive and delusional that she seems to be either developmentally challenged or sociopathic, and this makes the more self-aware Ely's ongoing devotion to her seem somewhat insincere.

The narrative tries to make use of mix tapes as a key plot device, yet somehow manages to ham-fistedly miss multiple opportunities to make this seem like anything other than a thin attempt to appear trendy. At one point a character's musical taste is lauded, yet we never seem to hear any music of taste.

Come for the cotton candy, stay while you peel the lint out of every crevice.
