4. It Says Nothing
In the end, the movie has nothing to say, which is not surprising.
The girl’s dad dies, in spite of her “best efforts” to save him. The couple reunites in the end, despite cheating on each other, unable to withstand the pressures that came from entering the world of stripping.
Does this couple really have a chance in the end? It’s about as convincing as Garden State, which was also a god awful, preachy, pretentious, puke-inducing hogwash of a nonsensical movie.
Oh, here’s an even better comparison: Just Married. Everything goes wrong on their honeymoon (and by everything I mean Ashton Kutcher’s character pays more heed to sports than his new hot wife), and the couple almost breaks up. Wow. Talk about manufactured.
Heartwarming drama? No, I’m not buying it. This is a mediocre film, plain and simple, regardless of its subject matter, which seemed to offer some promise.
