I don't even know where to start. This movie probably doesn't even deserve the time it takes to write a review. But I have to steer people away from this movie.
I'm usually okay with bad movies. I may hate them. But I can suffer through them. I saw this on Netflix and skipped through most of it just to see if it got any better. It didn't. It literally got worse for every minute. I almost watched the whole thing just so I could actually count all of the "dude", "word", "f*ck", "f*cking", "dawg" just for principle's sake.
Nathaniel Coffman has no idea what the he's doing. It's a blessing that he has only made one movie. I would have preferred it if he never had made this one either though. It's not just the fact that he has no idea how teenagers act, speak, dress etc (I mean absolutely no idea whatsoever). There is also so much drugs... And not in a dark way, just in a really weird way. I don't know if Coffman thinks that this is the way people actually act? The script (and the movie for that matter) is also an abomination. The main girl's father is really weird. I actually thought he had some sort of mental disability because of the weird things he said. The actors are also terrible. I can't even believe how an of them accepted a role in this movie. The Tommy character... I don't know if that is the way Coffman wanted him to act or... I just don't know. But he actually acts as if he's at least got an IQ below 70. He acts like a child.
And what is with the "I love you" after 2 weeks, and the ring... And it's apparently the I love you which makes everything okay in the end. Really? As if that would ever happen. And the masturbating... what the f*ck? What type of person does that in class?
Plus this is so extremely homophobic, it's ridiculous. There's at least one "f*g" in every scene. Even the teachers call the students gay. I don't get offended by creative discrimination. If it's part of a movie and it actually contributes to the point of the movie, it serves a purpose. It's not actual discrimination, it's a presentation of discrimination. This movie, though, was just blatantly disrespectful. It served no purpose whatsoever, and I truly believe that Coffman is homophobic in real life.
It's a terrible movie.
