Stereotypical with a squint of problematic discussion
Well. If you have seen a few movies and are now going to see this film, you will definitely can see it's predictability. And if you are familiar with the internet clips platforms, you will recognize some of the faces (at least, I did for some). So, how does this match up? As you might expect, decent, at best. Those stereotypical views and exaggerations aren't the first and won't be the last attempt at reducing complex topics and boil them down to basic emotions. Thing is, it is pretty funny to see those categories you can clearly define in the real world, concerning YouTube and similar social media platforms, and see the effort to translate them to the movie screen. But it is almost a little bit frightening, since you might think the Internet and the people living in it, growing up with it could prosper in this direction. When it is all about cats, funny clips you forget in an hour and a little cleavage to satisfy the inner boy, people forget the struggle of multidimensional conflicts, deep threats, big love you can see in those real movies, the "classics". And this movie has it's moments, e.g. at the presentation of the guy behind the cat. Behind this American humor and this documentary-style imaging their is some process of the information delivered. And the casting was pretty good, I.e. Amanda Cerny who delivers exactly how it is expected with the right amount of oversimplification. But it doesn't break through and those moments get flushed away by pretty standard mainstream movie procedure. But you don't expect it from this film, and it doesn't expect it from itself either. So I guess it delivers what they wanted without any attempt at risking something, or moving into a probably more interesting direction.
