Lots of Synthetics
1 August 2016 | by See all my reviews

There is a demographic that will relate to this film: Females who are (or somehow wish they were) moms and who have lives enhanced by cheap daytime soaps and cheap paperback romance fiction novelettes. And, who don't mind a script that challenges a sophomore writing class (that's like the HS one) for stereotypic blandness; a dialogue seldom exceeding seven words (with lots of head shot panning back and forth and …) and repetitive plasticized robotic acting. Plot: Predictable buffet of female family situations. I knew before watching they would have Aniston in a sweating jogging or workout scene - yep. Usual preteen and teen issues. What subsequent scene always shows up when a vending machine fails to drop your snack? Yep again, someone tries to stick their arm up. That is creative writing?? The whole movie imitates that vending scene. Directing/editing: See somewhere in the above. Setting: White suburbias (as in plural many times over).
