"American Milkshake" merrily bumps along as if it were the first movie to find humor in a white kid's idolizing desire to "be black," whatever that may mean to him.

The script is short on details and insight, and when asked to comment on this condition - or the script's sketch of a culture on the cusp of the Internet revolution - the film, like its dirtbag protagonist, just shrugs.

The fact that Jolie isn't very likable would be less of a problem if this film were actually funny, but his selfish disregard for those around him only ends up making us feel bad for the people who care about him.

Teenagers are jerks (it's a scientific fact) but if you have one as your protagonist, they need a redeeming quality or two.

"Milkshake" sucks all the flavor out of a tasty premise ...
