Highly Overrated But Still Good
This is a small, humorous movie in some ways, but it has a huge heart. What a nice experience.
There's no way I can possibly love it entirely but I just think its ridiculously bad, but enjoyable at the same time.
The film's masterful storytelling did its job. The message was clear. No need to overdo.
I enjoyed this movie. The characters were likable enough and the story was not predictable. It's probably not a movie for everyone, but if you like the actors you might enjoy the watch.
A young man living a sheltered life develops a crush on a stripper and joins her Alcoholics Anonymous group just so he can be in the same room with her. Krystal is unfunny but also pretty embarrasing seeing good actors such as Rosario Dawson and Kathy Bates in such an awful film plus why was Grant Gustin in this? Isn't the Flash some huge success or something? The storyline was a big mess and Nick Robinson was trying way to hard since he was literally one of the worst things about Jurassic World and one of the many bad things about this film too.
Why did I want to see this movie: I was drawn in by Rosario Dawson, who I think is an attractive actress. I enjoyed her work in "Clerks II", "Top Five" and other movies. I thought, maybe this might be funny. Well, I'll tell you, this is not the case. In fact, the only thing kind of funny, is that William H. Macy directed this flop of a film. The Good: A excellent actor can rise above material, and showcase their skills with ease. Kathy Bates is a good example of this, and really the only thing believable about this whole thing. Rosario Dawson is a looker, and near the end, when her character goes back to a "certain lifestyle", she does decently. I wouldn't say she's an award winning actress, though. But, I guess she did the job of getting me in the theater.The Bad: Everything from the script, to most of the acting is atrocious. This is a comedy with no laughs, caricatures that we've seen dozens of times, and a plodding pace. This is certainly one of the worst films I've seen in a while, and I just can't recommend it in any capacity, not even so bad it's funny. Stay away!
This is the most baffling movie I've seen all year. The characters do not do anything reasonable or logical. They're also not likable at all. I understand that with the director being William H. Macy, they were able to get some well known names for this project, however as a director, Macy just flat out sucks. I've seen his previous attempt at directing, The Layover, and it was an unfunny mess, but enough about that.Taylor's actions in this movie, from quasi-stalking Krystal to lying about being an alcoholic throughout the entire movie, are nothing but irredeemable and awful. Krystal has no character and is extremely malleable to whatever the plot needs her to do. Absolutely no one is putting in their A Work acting wise, especially T.I. who chews the scenery in the worst way every time he's on screen.But you should see this movie because if you enjoy entertainingly awful movies.
