Social Media Spirituality At Its Finest
13 March 2018 | by omendataSee all my reviews

Yes I am taking the mick in case the title misleads you.

Another hollow and tedious movie based around social media. Its a worn out thread already; pass me the recycle bin.

As boring, repetitive, time wasting and bereft of honesty as most of social media actually is in reality.

Watching this movie is as pointless and meaningless as posting your life on facebook, twitter and wasting hours of non-productive time arguing with people you dont even know and trying ever so hard to gain your portion of "confirmation" as they call it on social media. Don't get me wrong, I've been there myself but there is a time when you wake up and realise you are wasting your life and precious time on people you have never met and will never meet and that the whole thing is merely another distraction from the joys of actually living but movies like these try to hoodwink you into believing the hype!

The fact that they actually mention in the movie that over 3/4's of the USA never read a book last year says it all and is virtually the only interesting piece of dialogue in the entire movie!

Good acting from the cast but that cannot save a totally pointless script and dull movie.
