Disgusting mockery of fun

This is easily one of the worst films I have ever watched for a handful of reasons. The first reason why is the violence. It is so brutal and clearly just shocking for the sake of it, as if horrific imagery to this extent is funny. I will not stand for this and neither should you. Another reason this movie is awful is the plot. It’s basically non-existent. The story is extremely basic in order for the shock humor to be the focus. The third reason is the characters. The characters in this film are 24/7 joke machines with no character development, and nothing funny to offer. Also, the imagery in this film is truly horrifying to anyone 17 or under. As well as that, the films score is atrocious, and will hurt your ears when you listen to it. This awful movie should not be seen by anyone over 18. I deeply regret watching this, please do not waste your time.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (34 ):
Kids say (74 ):

Although weirdly entertaining in its own sleazy way, this is an adolescent boy's dream about what women want, a sexual fantasy to "prove" that women who say "no" really mean "yes." Poorly written and largely ridiculous in its attempt to portray human character (and in its blatant rip-off of Fifty Shades of Grey and nod to Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew), 365 Days will nevertheless titillate those patient enough to wade through terrible dialogue and senseless plot to get to the erotica. Given that Netflix deems two minutes of watching time an official "view," it's possible that many are skipping to erotic scenes without watching the self-important rot in between.

The gangster seemingly proves his nobility when he promises he'll never do anything without Laura's permission, but then promptly puts one hand on her breast and the other around her neck as she tries to writhe away. Uh, perhaps it's time to revisit the definition of "permission"? Most extraordinary and blatantly misogynist are sympathetic nods by Massimo's friends to how difficult Laura is, as if experienced and knowing men of the world are often forced to tolerate temperamental women, ignoring completely that Laura's contrariness isn't a sign of diva tendencies, but rather the normal response of someone trying to run from her captor. That Laura flaunts her sexuality in front of Massimo might imply she's asserting her power, but it reads as if the movie believes women are teases who want to "succumb" to powerful men, providing ammunition for men who argue that women just want to be treated roughly and dominated. At least the 1993 film Indecent Proposal used money to incentivize a woman's sexual surrender to unwanted male attention rather than suggesting that women are turned on by domineering and brutal men who take what they want.
