Amazing music, cool photography, fun performances, and some real ideas.
on April 14, 2016
A sometimes brilliant, sometimes frustrating film that manages to mix a Hollywood teen sex comedy and retrograde male fantasy (the gorgeous, happy, smart hooker who really does want you), with a pretty edgy satire about the American idea of success. The original script was even darker, with more thought provoking satire, and less flat out comedy. And indeed, the original ending included as an extra on the blu-ray subtly casts a whole different, more complex and interesting light on the film. But whatever it’s failures to live up to possible greatness, it’s still got amazing music, cool photography, fun performances, and some real ideas in its head to go with the glossy, sexy sex and wacky comedy.
