When aspiring musicians Lars and Sigrit are given the opportunity to represent their country at the world's biggest song competition, they finally have a chance to prove that any dream worth having is a dream worth fighting for.
A 12-year-old tech prodigy's science experiment goes awry and he forges a telepathic connection with his dog. The duo join forces and use their unique perspectives on life to comically overcome complications of family and school.
Brett Blackmore is a high school senior whose exemplary GPA and college resume hides the fact that he's unintentionally sold his childhood for a future he's not even sure he wants. When his high-school senior prank goes wrong, his life crumbles before his eyes. In frustration he launches the F**k-It List - of all the things he wishes he'd done but was too afraid. The list goes viral and touches a nerve with teenagers everywhere, exposing the educational-industrial complex as a money-machine designed to encourage anxiety-ridden parents to sell their kids into years of Tiger-Mom style servitude. Brett decides he's going to break free - and make a run for a future of his own design.
This movie feels like it was wrote by a teenager. It is so melodramatic and self pitying, it is a disaster.
The main character is just so annoying and I don't even know. The opening scene told me everything about this character. His parents had left him post it notes all over the house because he clearly can't do anything by him self. But apparently he is the best teenager to have ever graced this earth so confusing.
There is just so much petulant behaviour it's so bad. He ends up loosing his places at collage because he blew up a school. There is no involvement of the police which once again is confusing. He then proceeds to record the most manic video about wanting to do things he wish he had done.
This is just so bratty and spoilt. He takes no responsibility about blowing up a school because he was being a stupid child.
Then when he is sad he sits and sulks in his back garden pool. I mean can he be anymore relatable.
Everything is just teeny and just oblivious to the real world.
The speech at the end. Jesus. It feels like it was wrote by a child who has been sent to his room after being told off. "Mom you just don't understand me". It's just trash.
It is 100% made for teenagers but it shouldn't be because it is like telling them to be like "drop out of college and just fart around doing nothing if you want to" that is not a good message.
In someways it's like a bad version of Booksmart (2019) in ways like he wants to do things he has missed out on doing. But booksmart handles it in such a good way and you like the characters because they are well drawn and thought out.
So in conclusion watch Booksmart
