What Did I Just See?
When I saw that the writer of this mess was the female lead, the mystery was compounded. The acting of virtually everyone in this show was really really bad. Angie’s former teacher, in a dialogue with her, did not even make eye contact with her but was looking over her shoulder to read her lines. I kid you not. Check it out. The school scenes were painful to watch. The writer obviously has never met a real child in her life. The leads were badly cast. The “hot jock/coach” was not only not hot, he was not even fit-looking. The female lead did not look the part of the spoiled rich beauty. I’m not saying she was unattractive, but she should have been glammed up and had conventionally pretty features. (Because let’s face it, work would have been done.) The script did not make sense. Why would a loving mother abruptly “just cut her daughter off” from her allowance? Angie was kind and generous-hearted and very intelligent. She had some large bills, but no foundation was laid for such an action. She should have insisted her daughter get a job and become self-supporting, yes, but get a job first. And put her on a budget. Put a limit on her credit cards.
The whole thing was very disjointed like it was put together with scotch tape. The characters were not consistent. Their personalities did not match their actions. it had a whole “Hey gang, let’s put on a show!” feel.
The writer/actress, Liliana Tandon, has an impressive resume. What happened here? Why would she write herself such a dumb part in such an amateurish movie? How did it get green-lighted? The preview made this look funny and entertaining. I hate-watched the last hour and a half. Very disappointed.
