Fellow Movie Buffs

Friday, March 7, 2014


I disliked this movie at first. I found it very disjointed and hard to follow. It centers around a young girl and the disfunctual families in her small neighborhood. A lot transpires in the course of the movie but in the end, it's all worth watching. And it's a movie that sticks with you for quite a while. Few movies do that, and isn't it what movies are supposed to do?

"Straight A's"

Based on the description of the movie, I was prepared to be underwhelmed by this film. Instead, I found it to be a totally charming, funny, and perfect example of what great indie movies are all about. The basic plot is about a loser uncle who returns home to visit his brother and his wife, who happens to be his ex girlfriend. He strikes up a friendship with his brothers children and the story revolves around his relationship with him and his old girlfriend. I'm not going to give anything more away. Just watch this wonderful movie! Give it a chance.
4 out of 5 stars
