Solid Teenage Flick
31 May 2018 | by mmevanille-53097See all my reviews

Looking at this film from the perspective of its target audience, which is basically teens/young adults, It quite a solid film. A story about being true to yourself, but its told in a unique way. Actors did fine, plot was well written if maybe slightly over the top at times. Its hard to write a film about wishes coming true because the wording of any wish can always be open to interpretation, but I think Status Update captures the magic of it quite well. The pace is good, Cinematics fine for a lower budget film. I wouldn't call it an overly funny film, although it does have its moments.

If you or your children like Glee, then you will probably like this. Its worth a watch if you like the Teenage Fantasy genre and a bit of fun; But not one for serious critics, hence some of the previous reviews.
