Charmless, unfunny Friends episode
21 April 2018 | by rebehka-60748See all my reviews

SPOILER: Busting at the seams with overpriviledged talentless writing/directing this is a nothing movie that feels like a favor given to someone important's wannabe-movie-maker-kid. At best this is an unfunny, charmless Friends episode.

The movie is about a group of 4 very white, very rich, very skinny, very unlikeable (but not in a charming way) 20 somethings who are aimless in their pursuit for a successful relationship. They watch fireworks (which the director shoots like he believes no one has ever had fireworks in a movie before). They dance at a Malibu house party (in a dance montage 10 minutes into the film). In one scene, the rich, beautiful white people talk about how they love the OJ movie ("the doc or the movie?" "the doc") to sound interesting, I guess, and then go on a date: a guided tour in Brentwood of the OJ murders. It's an unironic scene. It is meant to be romantic. It isn't.

In another scene our protagonist Hallie (Emma "you are better than this movie" Roberts) takes one lame, contextless photo and then gets to be a part of a photography exhibit (because clearly in director Sam Boyd's world this is how success works). Hallie also gets to be the model in a photo shoot because her boss yells "the model didn't show up, is there anyone here who is a size zero?!" and luckily Hallie is a size zero (phewf crisis averted!) In yet another sequence Hallie does molly and becomes a lesbian in a pool for five minutes (yawn) for revenge on her boyfriend and then her friends make fun of her because, I guess, ew lesbians?? The director's perspective on life seems so myopic we think he might have watched The Bling Ring and thought it was a documentary.

At the Q & A of the Tribeca film festival premiere writer/director Sam Boyd (who is signed to CAA because why?) said this movie was inspired by events with his still-girlfriend. We think she should change her status to "open relationship" because she should see other people... but not as much as we think you should see other movies.
