I was so bored with the film, it created a void in my life... No nudity.

If you are a fan of the likable Meagan Good, there is probably no stopping you from checking out "Video Girl." It's easy to see why the actress was attracted to the project--in fact, she actively participated in getting the film made and takes a producer credit. She is front and center in almost every scene and gets to show the many stages within a classic tale of Hollywood corruption. It is an opportunity to show a real acting range and while the movie flounders (especially in its second half), my good will toward Good herself never waned. The movie actually starts as a low-key charmer as Good is introduced to a new life and unexpected career, but suddenly it shifts to a rather laughable cautionary tale at the midpoint. At fault is a cliche riddled screenplay that loses all sense of realness despite the claims that the movie is "based on a real story." Seriously, some of the sequences in the "harrowing" second act could qualify as classic camp and made me giggle when I was supposed to be moved.

Good starts out as a rather demure shopgirl who is discovered by a music video director at a bar one evening. She visits the location shoot, participates as the lead in a rap video, and is somewhat smitten by her new friend (Adam Senn). A quick sidenote, you probably shouldn't trust someone named Shark. Senn invites Good out to Los Angeles and soon she is starring in all of his videos and sharing his bed. Good, of course, becomes the toast of the town despite the fact that she displays no visible talent (not even dancing) as she is usually just the pretty face in the video. Everyone wants to work with her--but that Senn is a meany and so selfish.

Meagan Good works at a curio shop for a perfectionist. When she gets an opportunity to dance in hip-hop videos she tries it out. The young director takes a personal interest in Meagan who can't resist him.

Meagan spirals downward as her career goes upward. She has dreams were she talks to her dead sister who tries to get her on the right path. The film was packed with cliches, stereotypes, and mediocre acting. To assist Meagan in her downward/upward spiral, other video girls influence her.

Meagan is excellent as a video girl, but the rest of the film lacks credibility and is clearly a "come to Jesus" film. Message: People who do drugs, do so because there is a void in their life. I was so bored with the film, it created a void in my life...

No nudity. Rape attack.

A small town girl named Lorie Walker is injured, which forces her to abandon her dreams of becoming a professional ballerina. After a chance encounter with an old friend, she is convinced to appear in a rap music video. The director of said video is immediately smitten with her beauty and takes her away to Los Angeles to become a Video Model.

The music video's Lorie appears in are of the lowest common denominator standard (her debut video seems to only consist of the lyrics "I got a big booty cutie" repeated over and over) and her roles only demand that she stand around and look pretty for the camera. If you are not a casual fan of modern (and may I say, low grade) hip-hop, these will be the first hurdles you have to cross to become invested in this film.

There are pacing issues throughout the film. Sometimes scenes seem to drag on, then other moments rocket to moments that are overly dramatic without warning. For example, soon after we watch Lorie stand around at work (which IS her work), then go on a boring date, we see her sister get slaughtered outside of a gas station. Before we have a chance to catch our breaths, we're right back to a series of scenes that slow the story telling to a crawl.

Having Lorie's sister dying seemed to only be included so that her ghost could visit Lorie in her dreams and offer her moral support...I suppose phone calls would have been too dull a concept for the screenwriter. Such a tragic event should have anchored Lorie, but instead it only makes for temporary guilt trips down memory lane before she vaults right back into lines of cocaine.

Speaking of those lines of cocaine, Lorie's downward spiral is typical of these types of films.

I really did like this movie. To me Ms. Good is a great actress, may be on TCM down the road. We have grand-daughter telling us they want to be actress in movies. I will let them watch this next year, when the oldest girls is 9. We train a child in the way they should go, with God. But as we know, being in the world ourselves. Teens young adults must see things for themselves to really understand what grownup try to protect them from, as with Video Girl.
Meagan get's to experience a life that many will only dream of. She will share first hand what woman may face in the business of entertainment. You will see the ups and downs, from struggling to making it to deep thoughts of wondering if it's really worth it. One must know their own limits not the limits of so call friends. Like Friends don't let friends drink and drive, but today kids. That's my friend, she got drunk with me.....Sad, but true.

Learn from others what you witness. You may say in your head, "I'll never allow myself to be like that." She thought the same. Know your limits and stick to them. "But as for me and my house, We will serve the Lord." Be there for your kids when they fall Parents.
