It's very rare I buy a film on DVD and end up not really loving the exact movie I buy, but this is one I brought. The thing is I brought it because it's an asset to my Cary Elwes DVD collection I got goin on, so I won't get rid of it. This film was very very embarrassing, the cast want work I get that, but think a little more before you just say yes to a film like this.
For me it was just a sex comedy with no real brilliant story going on at all, it was just about this guy who is trying to get the girl' and those movies don't work for me, not if all the sex references end up being completely embarrassing. I think Nat Wolff was the highlight of the whole movie for me, he's a real talented young actor that is going to get bigger as years progress. He certainly has good looks and a good personality as an actor to be the best actor for this teen comedy, he's going to be somewhere totally different in the industry in a few years.
I mean Selena Gomez was not great in her role as the girl the lead was trying to get with, although she always does films different to this but she normally does well in her roles but I think she was pulling away from the real talent I know she has. Then we have Mary-Louise Parker I had never really seen her in anything else much but I remember her being in that show 'Weeds' which I never watched and she hasn't done much since then either, but this is the most recent film she has done. It didn't really give her a good vibe if I'm honest, she's probably a lovely woman but I can't rate her highly from the performance in this, but there was worse cast in this than her.
Cary Elwes, why did you set foot in this and to play a character that was not really in it much. I do love the man, always will regardless of any film he's in and sometimes someone can love an actor a lot and then hate them afterwards for one bad film and that's something I don't agree with but there's some things as a fan I can't take, it's so frustrating when your favorite actor is pulling back with the talent and gratitude that I know he has because of the limited amount of time he was in it, his character could have been in it more but I can't moan but I wish Cary would just not pull back as his talent is endless but it was not used in the right way and his character was just embarrassing but it's great that Cary can play any character and feel comfortable and with Cary I can always see that, but his role in this just was not for me.
Heather Graham also made an appearance and she made the film bearable, still got good looks for her being her 40's. Also some other actors made an appearance and they were limited characters as well. I'm glad Nat Wolff got the spotlight, cause he's great. Overall, it was a film that I could rewatch but it won't have a different effect on me.
