So the highschool student, Albert, all of a sudden gets the chance to live out his dream to become a youtube star at the cost of almost everything that has any value to him. He leaves his friends, drops out of highschool, sponsors an alcoholic drink for children (Kiddy Booze) and very quickly finds himself lonely and with no opportunity to fulfill his artistic ambitions.
It´s actually a sad story that only in the beginning tries to live up to the "comedy" label that it has. I went in with my daughter age 12 and her friend and afterwards we agreed that there was two funny scenes and a third one trying to....
I had also had this weird visual experience as if the movie was shown in the wrong format. It was as if there had been zoomed to much into the scenes which was especially annoying in the close-up scenes. Part of the hair, faces, hats etc. was simply not within view.
My own more personal expectancy was to see the talent of a youtuber unfold which Albert is in his real life. What does this consist of? Walking around in submanic overdrive with a camera in selfie mode and being able to integrate whatever you meet on your way in a very creative and humoristic fashion without losing whatever focus you might have? Albert was totally eaten up by a manuscript and a director the way I saw it. If he has any talent he didn´t bring it with him into the movie.
Ps. When you read reviews that gives max score check to see if the user has made more than one review. If not consider the possibility of a lobbyist. If you agree consider putting this post scriptum at the bottom at your own reviews.
