Director Steven Brill’s last film was my least favorite movie of 2013 (Movie 43), so expectations were not exactly sky high for Walk of Shame. At first glance, the comedy starring Elizabeth Banks appears to be a mix between The Hangover and Anchorman. Unfortunately, it lacks the jokes or the charm that the former two films had.
After having her boyfriend leave and thinking she lost a once-in-a-lifetime job opportunity as an anchor in a major station, Meghan reacts as any young adult would, by getting sloppy drunk and engaging in a one night stand. After a successful night, she wakes to find out that she’s now the top candidate for the anchor job, she just needs to get to work on time.
Forgetting her wallet and phone, Meghan proceeds to embark on the longest walk of shame ever.. On the way, she makes unlikely friends and goes through zany adventures to make it to the newsroom in time for evening news. That was the intention. Instead, Walk of Shame is a misogynistic, racist, unfunny escapade that fails to bring anything new to the comedy genre.
The issue with the film is that the derivation of humor stems from how different Meghan is from everyone else. Early on, Meghan encounters three black men, and sure enough she’s scared that they’re drug dealers evading the cops. Not only is her character racist, Brill’s perspective encourages the audience to be racist. It turns out that these guys, Scrilla, Pookie, and Hulk, are nice gentlemen that’s willing to help Meghan. This is suppose to be funny. The contrast from the expectation of how these gangbangers would act towards an attractive white woman and how the it plays out in the movie is suppose to be hilarious. These presumptions just come off senselessly offensive.
It’s not an isolated incident either. Meghan encounters an angry foreign taxi driver, a bunch of incompetent cops, and most damaging, the film paints Elizabeth Banks’ character as a bumbling idiot. Foreigners can’t be trusted, minorities are stereotypes and women are useless, Walk of Shame is an embarrassing concept built on damaging assumptions.
Poor writing, unoriginal jokes and predictable characters are just icing on the cake for this crude attempt at humor. Steven Brill will have the audience leaving the theaters in a walk of shame with this one.

With the slew of “get drunk, end up in bad situation” movies that have flooded the industry, it was hard to get excited for this movie. I enjoy Elizabeth Banks and the trailers did seem funny. I just couldn’t help but have that feeling of “been there done that”. And that feeling is valid but it doesn’t mean that the movie was bad, in fact, I quite enjoyed it.
The plot plays out like any number of movies in the genre. Main character gets drunk, wakes up in a bad situation and has to try and retrace their steps to get from point A to point B (point B often being supremely important). While the plot was predictable, it’s what happens between point A and point B that matters.
Despite the number of movies similar, the director was still able to find some uniquely funny scenes to put Banks’ character in. Some scenes that come to mind are an impound lot and a crack house. While not all scenes hit the mark, there was enough here to be worth a viewing. I also found the running gag about Banks’ characters profession to be extremely funny.
So what make this seemingly mediocre film worth viewing? Two things in my opinion. Firstly, this is the first movie of this type where I actually felt for the character. I wanted her to get where she wanted to go and that kept me involved in the movie. Secondly, I appreciate the fact that we can have a movie like this without relying on extremely rude and crude scenes. Yes, there is profanity and some implied sex but in comparison to other films with similar plots (Hangover), this movie is tame. But that doesn’t mean it’s not funny as I feel it is able to remain funny throughout.
If you into movies like the Hangover, Hot Tub Time Machine, or Bridesmaids, then this is a must watch. If you love comedies then this is also a good bet. It may not end p being a movie you need to own but you can do much much worse than giving this movie a shot.
Embrace the good news here!
Thank you Elizabeth Banks. You rock. Yes, the world also brings good news. Meghan Miles (played by Elizabeth Banks) gets drunk, gets in bed with a stranger, her car is towed, finds herself in ‘the hood’, and because she is in a not-so-conservative dress everybody calls her a hooker even though she denies it repeatedly, they put it to her. She is even called a temptress and witch when she strays into a den of rabbis. Pushed down from a bus by a female bus driver and haunted down by the police, life, in same manner, beats her down repeatedly (can life go wronger than this?)…but she rises like a Phoenix from the ashes
And when she finally returns to work, she chooses to not report the ‘fake news’ script but instead tells the truth and life finally smiles on her. The world sure brings good news.
Thank you Ms. Banks for teaching us to be ourselves. Lest I forget, nothing is wrong with the yellow dress. I love it.
