Good Idea, but a little rough around the edges
I basically liked the movie. I just wonder how much money they spent to make this indie film. Lots of things could have been better: script, cinematography, continuity, locations, but the basic ideas came through. There were all kinds of story development that was left to one’s imagination. Too bad, because the basic idea was a good one: YOU CAN’T GO HOME AGAIN. It is a an old theme, but one that has legs. Most of the characters were pretty believable, but just a bit too stereotypical. The best scenes were the sexual liaisons between between Leigh and the boy who was a boy in name only. Whew! His sexual prowess was closer to a 30 year old than a 16 y.o. which was one of he problems with the movie, why were these folks in their late twenties hanging out with a bunch of dysfunctional high school boys? A question never quite adequately answered in the film.
Leigh needs a break from her crazy life in the fast lane and gets one, but it is not what she bargained for. Some deus ex machina tragedy and some hot sex really don’t make a complete story, but it is a small town slice of life thing that many of us can understand.
Kristen Bell gets an A for effort
A reporter (Kristen Bell) quits her job due to unhappiness and contempt for her job. She decides to return home to Conneticut, and moves in with her parents. She gets her old lifeguard job back, and starts up a controversial relationship with a troubled teenager, and even alienates her childhood friends. This movie is a bit better than the IMDb rating indicates. It’s certainly flawed, but the fantastic performances and the powerful subject nature help propel it over the hump. I think the reason I was able to relate to this movie, despite the fact that it left me feeling a little cold was that I’m in a similar predicament that Leigh (Kristen Bell) is in during this movie. I may not have fallen in love with a teenager, but my life fell apart as soon as I began to grow up. It’s only natural to revisit the place where you last felt truly happy. My main problem with this movie is that everybody is in disarray, and they are unlikable people. Leigh only cares about herself, Mel (Mamie Gummer) is a head-case, and her husband (Joshua Harto) is a selfish ingrate, who I wanted to slap silly. His whiny character was so grating. We get the obligatory ending where everybody begins to find themselves, and all is forgiven. The storyline between Bell & Todd (The teenage love interest for Bell) was especially hard to endure. Kristen Bell is absolutely terrific. It might just be her best performance. Her character is a bit unlikable and selfish, but she is so winning in her role, that it didn’t bother me all that much. I’d gladly try and help sort her life out. Martin Starr is truly impressive as the teenager, Todd. I felt for him on many occasions, even if his character background was a bit thin. I’m not sure what I fully thought about this movie. It left me in heavy thought, it engrossed me, and I admired the message, but more likable characters would have been nice. It’s worth a watch
