Get the Girl Review
9 April 2017 | by geraldohannaSee all my reviews

There are so many movie's today that rely heavily on a gimmick to impress - As an audience we want something new, and from time to time we'll gladly take something old as long as it inventive in some form. With Director Eric England's (Contracted) "Get the Girl", we may not get anything new - but we do get a fun paced thriller packed with twists you might see coming and characters that even Tarantino himself might take a nod.

"Get the Girl" starts with a simple premise - A wealthy young man (Justin Dobies) falls in love with a girl (Elizabeth Whitson). Love at first sight, allegedly. Only thing is - she doesn't know he exist, despite the fact that he comes each night during her shift - Just to see her! He's then manipulated by Patrick (Noah Segan) into a fake kidnapping in order to win her affection. Of course things go horribly wrong all around the board.

Eric England crafts a fun story with a few thrills and perhaps a few unseen twists and turns along the way to keep you busy. Our proposed hero - Clarence is rather dull and timid, with constant voice overs that remind you of Jessie Eisenberg's "Zombieland". The real hero of this story and perhaps fun character to stay with throughout the 1h 27 mark is Adi Shankar as KJ - Adi Shankar is hilariously brilliant in every scene he's in, you'll probably wish he had more to do though. Noah Segan (Looper) is also very good.

Overall this is a movie worth watching, despite a formula you've probably seen one to many times before.
