Who ordered a 2016 film with 1960s values...?

Humor Just Doesn't Work
 

Writer/Director Chris McCoy was born in 1981 but, to all intents and purposes, he may as well have come from the 1960s, because, for all its pretense about edginess, the standards and values for this soggy teen coming-of-age story may as well have been plucked from a Doris Day/Rock Hudson romcom. Now, ordinarily this is the part of the review where I reassure the reader that, in spite of one of the worst scripts in recent memory, there are loads of other good things here to keep viewers enthralled and entertained. Sorry, that kind of happy ending only happens in movies, not in reviews of movies. Unlike fine wine, this one does not get better the more time you spend with it. The cast tries hard with the material they are given but sadly that is not enough. (The single exception being Zoey Deutch, who was perhaps the only thing worth watching in Vampire Academy and once again offers the only character worth following in this outing. Deutch has that rare mix of innocence, wisdom and sassiness, bringing to mind an early Diane Keaton. With more edge.) It is also astonishing how a film that tries (unsuccessfully) to base itself on sex has virtually none. This can't be a censorship thing because the other day I was re-reviewing 1978's Animal House (great film!) and that 40 year old flick had more raunch and nudity. So, once again this has to be a director/writer thing -- see comments above on this topic. The only one in the entire film who seems to be having more fun than Deutch is Ashley Judd playing a cougar who sets her sights on one of the young boys in the ensemble cast. You almost get the feeling that she waived her usual fee just to take the part. Judd and Deutch generally have a great time here. The audience, not so much. If it is entertainment you want, pick up a copy of Ferris Bueller or Emma Stone's Easy A.

I Loved "Good Kids"
 

Four lifelong friends, living in a summer resort town in Massachusetts, have just graduated from high school, and will be entering college in the fall. They've been straight arrows up until now, but decide they want to reinvent themselves to experience all the things they've resisted and to make this their summer of "yes". Thus, they'll embark on a campaign to have as much alcohol, drugs, and sex as they can find, so that they'll be more ready for the college experience. This sex comedy becomes quite raunchy as it progresses with lots of explicit language throughout, numerous implied sex scenes, drug use, and drinking. You might expect all these things in a teen film of this nature, but perhaps its biggest problem, in my opinion, is that it's just not funny. The humor constantly falls flat and can be even mean-spirited at times. The acting is fairly solid from the cast, but they can only do so much with this weak screenplay. It's also a mystery to me why the most talented actress Ashley Judd has agreed to play a small role here as a cougar. Overall, for me there were just a couple of laughs in the entire film and thus the low rating.
