Product Description

Mini's First Time (DVD)

A nymphet with a grudge is usually a promising combination for a thriller, and Mini's First Time lays on the Lolita complex in the capable person of Thirteen star Nikki Reed. Having been a bad girl at a tender age in that one, Reed plays a slightly older but even more dangerous teen in Mini, as the lethal daughter of a wannabe Hollywood actress (Carrie-Anne Moss) who never was. Joining the ranks of professional escorts while still in high school, Mini has an unsavory "meet cute" with her future partner in crime: answering a call at a hotel, she sleeps with her surprised stepfather (Alec Baldwin). Pretty soon the odd couple is cooking up ways of getting the mother out of the picture--first by psychological war, then by, well, more extreme measures. Director Nick Guthe tries to draw out the Hollywood satire as well as the modern-noir elements, but the tone is too glib for the mix to sit well, and there isn't quite enough happening on either front for the movie to gain real traction. However, this HBO-produced picture does present a handful of delicious performances, led by Baldwin's marvelous portrait of a self-disgusted middle-aged man who might actually have fallen in love... the poor sap. Moss is a revelation in a comic role (she does an expert drunk act) and Jeff Goldblum contributes his uniquely discursive muttering to a few scenes. Luke Wilson plays a police detective so droll and laid-back he seems to have wandered in from a Wes Anderson film, or possibly an old episode of Columbo. --Robert Horton

5.0 out of 5 stars simply wicked November 30, 2006
Disappointed by family life, particularly her relationship with her mother, Mini rebels and becomes a person without remorse. She becomes a prostitute, in fact her stepfather is her second client. They start an affair and eventually team up to drive her mother insane, it works too well, and soon are investigated by a detective. Mini's First Time has no moral conscience so its definitely not for everyone, but for those who love imperfect characters and like femme fatales then this movie might be for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Double Indemnity+Thirteen=Mini's First Time November 11, 2006
"Mini's First Time" was in theatres for about ten minutes before quietly sneaking onto DVD. I had heard of the movie long before it slipped into theatres and didn't know it had been released on DVD until a couple weeks later. When I first heard the title, I thought it was a shameless way of getting people to see it. The title actually makes a lot of sense, so I'm going to tell you right now that movie has no nudity in it. It stars Nikki Reed, who co-starred in and co-wrote Thirteen. That movie scored Holly Hunter an Oscar nomination, jumpstarted Evan Rachel Wood's career, but Reed has just kind of chilled in the background; Appearing in movies like Lords of Dogtown and American Gun recently. The role she's playing here can be compared to the Barbara Stanwyck character in "Double Indemnity" and the Kathleen Turner character in "Body Heat." In fact, it could also be compared to Reed's own character from "Thirteen." In the end, it's like one big combination of them all. Reed plays Mini, the daughter of Diane (Carrie-Anne Moss, 'Memento') a Hollywood golddigger and wannabe actress who never made it after she was impregnated by a producer. Mini is in high school (but is apparently 18, since she's on the verge of graduating and smokes in front of cops and things like that) and obsessed with doing things for the first time. Sex, blackmail, murder, whatever. Her mother is married to a man named Martin (Alec Baldwin), who is unhappy with his marriage. He's a public relations guy, which Mini finds ironic since he's never in public with her mother and she doesn't remember the last time they had relations. After getting a (temporary) job as an escort girl, she finds herself in a room with Martin. Suddenly, they begin having an affair but realize that they need to get Mini's mother out of the picture.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another stupid man falls victim March 24, 2011
I thoroughly enjoyed this movie! The only reason that I didn't rate it a five is because the ending was a little too predictable. However, I always enjoy seeing a beautiful, relentless, intelligent woman whose skilled in the deception of man. This movie just reiterates the fact that men lose their whole entire focus and common sense when consumed by the power of lust and the beauty of flesh. Very well done!

3.0 out of 5 stars Just ok April 3, 2011
Mini's character was definitely a sociopath, and I found myself disgusted by her at times. There were a few things about the movie that didn't make sense to me, such as why they were planning on pursuing a "relationship" instead of just leaving it at a casual fling. So because they want a relationship, they come up with ways to get rid of her mother. The whole thing could have been avoided if they had just understood the fact that it was just a little affair and she was eventually going to move out and move on. Going through all the trouble of drugging her mother seemed unrealistic to me. I also didn't understand why when they found her they didn't just leave her to overdose and then say she was a pill user. Instead they decide to make it look like a suicide by putting her in the car, which ends up incriminating them. The whole time I was watching the movie I kept thinking "You guys are so stupid! Don't do that!"

5.0 out of 5 stars Pretty Poison meets Lolita November 7, 2006
By Bob L
Terrific tongue-in-cheek black comedy about stepdaughter Nikki Reed (Thirteen), as the under-aged femme fatale, who hooks up with step dad Alec Baldwin and begins playing all situations from the middle. Moss and Goldblum supply ample comic relief in support. Baldwin is, as always, fabulous.

The success of the movie can be measured by how sexy Reed can be and this is a very successful movie. It's dark but doesn't take itself too seriously, keeping it light and easy to take.

3.0 out of 5 stars quite exciting, but with shades of overdoing it August 19, 2008
A delicious, albeit rather predictable thriller, this movie is as entertaining as it is well acted. With strong performances from Alec Baldwin and Carrie-Anne Moss as well as more promise from the now grown up Nikki Reid, this movie also has an amusing cameo by Jeff Goldblum.

3.0 out of 5 stars A bit predictable and lacks certain payoffs December 21, 2006
An enjoyable film that has a fantastic start and premise. While the supporting cast gave solid to good performances, the plot is a bit predictable. There is no real twist as a payoff at the end either, everything was pretty much laid out a mile away. It would have been more fun it they put in some real twists. Some of the initial interactions between Martin (Alec Baldwin) and Mini (Nikki Reed) almost reminded me of the interactions between Michael Caine and Michelle Johnson in "Blame it on Rio" - a middle-aged man feeling torn by his guilt and love (or lust?) for having a forbidden affair with a much younger woman. However, the film soon changed tone and degenerated into a predictably flat cat and mouse game with an uninspired detective played by Luke Wilson (who coincidentally gave a very flat performance).

There are enough good performances peppered throughout the film, but not enough to carry it all the way. Carrie Ann Moss gave a fantastic performance as a convincing one note crazy drunk mother while Jeff Goldblum basically played himself, which is not necessarily a bad performance either as you can tell he enjoyed himself. Baldwin gave convincing performance as the torn rich middle-aged stepfather, who was unwillingly being turned into a partner-in-crime because of his guilt and love for his stepdaughter. Mini was almost fun to watch as she schemes and manipulates everybody around her but it was a bit too easy to be believed. Reed turned in a solid performance and you cannot get your eyes off her. The film tries a bit too hard to make Mini an over-the-top sex kitten and femme fatale, but the fact that Reed was underage when this film was shot makes that rather unconvincing. It would have been nice to actually see some of Mini's bedroom antics to complete her persona.
