A failed attempt at comedy
20 October 2019 | by theotakuhqSee all my reviews

I saw this film last night at the Milwaukee Film Festival and was hugely disappointed with it. There were a few stylistic choices in the film that I thought were nice but that was about where my enjoyment ended.

The film does not have a plot but rather a series of disjointed events that occur one after the other.

The acting is terrible, and that includes both the line delivery and the choreography. In all fairness, though, the actors were not given much to work with. The movie relies on a very specific brand of humor, that of the dry millennial girl who is just over it all. This humor works in Broad City (for the first two seasons at least) and with April from Parks & Rec. It does not work here.

The jokes fell flat for me with few exceptions, and most of them could be seen coming from a mile away.
