I Watched It, So You Don't Have To
To say that this movie is slow is an understatement. The plot was so slow burning, I began to question why I review movies (lol). I saw this movie while scrolling through Tyler Posey's filmography, and I thought, "It's a teen movie, so maybe I'll like it?" I was wrong. I did not relate to any of the characters, and a lot of them are terrible role models. One character has a "hookup list" of girls, and is obsessed with boobs. Two "nerdier" characters lie about their age, drink underage, and have sex with older women, but when you begin to focus on the main two relationships of the movie, my angst began to relieve slightly. Right as I thought, "Oh ok, maybe we will end with a relationship where the actors have a little bit of chemistry," they end the relationship. Overall, saying that it had a satisfying ending is the only positive thing I can say about this movie. Tyler Posey and KJ Apa give a solid performance, but it is surrounded with amateur acting by the ensemble. My final words; Don't waste your time! There are better rom-coms out there like Palm Springs!
