All the Boys Love Mandy Lane was an okay watch, but nothing special. I like Amber Heard and think she's a terrific actress, however the film was not that great in my opinion. The summary sounds better than it actually is. Mandy Lane (Heard) is liked and admired by all the boys, except she has nothing to show for it except a pretty face. She comes off rather boring because she doesn't talk much and she's shy, which is why I think she's most interesting to all the boys - she's the quiet, mysterious one that has no interest in anyone. Mandy is invited to a rowdy weekend party at a secluded ranch by her friends in a group of about 6 or 7. A security guard named Garth (Anson Mount) also works there. When strange occurrences start happening the first night, each person starts getting killed off one by one. The killer is rather predictable. The ending has a nice twist. Language has lots of cursing including plenty of f-words followed by harsh name calling type words. Violence is gory and includes bloody stabbings, gunshots, references to suicide, a character jumps off a roof that ends bloody, a human tooth covered in blood is found on a dirt road, gun shoved into person's mouth which chokes them then leads to a broken jaw, sick cattle are shot, eyes are slashed, a brutal beating in a pit of mud and carcasses is seen. Sexual content includes a topless teen, some bathing suit scenes, a girl gives a guy a hand job behind a newspaper, oral sex implied, girl in a bra and panties, some crude jokes throughout. Drugs include cocaine/pill snorting, pot smoking, prescription drug use and heavy drinking. Content is too harsh for under 17!
