A good movie

I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this flick but the title was pretty catchy and since it was available on Netflix, I thought I might as well check out the damned thing. First of all, one thing I liked about this flick was how it depicted the life on a college campus. Indeed, you always get to hear in American movies that to go to college is just so damned amazing but I had always my doubts (personally, I went to college was myself in Europe and even though I didn’t hate it, it didn’t turn out to be anything really mindblowing). Well, this movie finally displayed that college is actually not much better than high-school after all which was a pretty good start. It was also dealing with an interesting subject, on how a supposedly educated environment as an Ivy league university is dealing with the complexity of the race issues nowadays in the USA.  Still, even though the whole thing was pretty good, in fact, it could have been much better in my opinion.  The main issue was that, even though the characters were interesting enough, because they were in my opinion just too many of them, there was not enough time to develop them and, as a result, they were all rather stereotypical after all. Sure, the black rebel was having sex with a white boy and the popular successful black guy was smoking weed and wanted to be a comedian but that was not enough to break these stereotypes. Still, even if it wasn’t a complete homerun, it was a decent watch and it is definitely worth a look, especially if you like the genre.
