Storyline

Jodi (Ava Michelle) has always been the tallest girl in school - and she's always been uncomfortable with it. After slouching her way through life for 16 years and being made fun of by classmates, Jodi meets Stig (Luke Eisner), a seemingly perfect Swedish foreign exchange student who's even taller than she is. Jodi's new crush turns her world upside down and throws her into a surprising love triangle, but with the help of her two best friends (Griffin Gluck, Anjelika Washington) as well as her beauty queen sister Harper (Sabrina Carpenter), Jodi comes to realize that she's far more than her insecurities about her appearance have led her to believe.

Could have been much better.
13 September 2019 | by CitizenDeviSee all my reviews

Some turns the movie takes are a bit annoying, and the score is too noticeable and tiresome after a while. But otherwise I actually liked it for the most part in its first hour or so. It's an innocent little teen comedy and I don't see too much wrong with that personally. However, most things toward the end are unforgivably kitschy and cringey which really brings the whole flick down by a lot. The performances, even if by people who mostly didn't act much or at all before, are very solid. Tall Girl overall is so surface level and just not good enough, even if it has some honestly good flashes of a kinda nice movie. On a sidenote I gotta say Maggie Rogers' Light On at the end was such a nice surprise, but the song was edited weirdly which sort of fits this whole movie. It could have easily been so much better, but simply wasn't in the end because of odd choices in the script which made the flick feel silly by the time the credits started to roll.
