Generation Um... Reviews

This movie made folding laundry fun. [Not intended as a compliment] There's an interesting scene towards the beginning and there's one at the end, but the rest of it was like eating dry sand. That being said, it would be a good movie to trick someone with: Pretend it was terribly funny and at the same time utterly thought provoking. Recommended it to your friends, family and insist that they watch it in its entirety. Then, grab a bowl of popcorn, sit down and enjoy an hour and forty minutes worth of eye rolling and fidgeting as you watch them experience the feeling of hopeless and helpless agony that this movie undoubtedly delivers in large, cafeteria grade servings.

This was pretty boring and looked amatuerish in filiming style. An interesting bathroom scene with Keanu, but the rest ugh.

It's not so bad as they say... the subject is almost the same of Coppola's Bling ring, and it's slow as that one was: the fact is that this new generations following Paris Hilton examples are so empty and wasted that there is little to talk about and in this movie they talk very little. But at least here you keep asking yourself what Keanu Reeves is doing with these stupid young people and in the end there's even a little surprise.

What a piece of shit! I never watch this movie without press the right or left button on my PC keyboard. generation Um... like shot in very low-budget and directed by a amateur filmmaker. this movie like doesn't have a fucking plot!. the movie moving slow and features very 'confusing' acting, dialogue and scene. POINTLESS! What happened to Keanu Reeves? a first class Hollywood actor?

Aimless but interesting... sort of.

Wow. Keanu Reeves has made some bad movies, but this one takes the cake. The really odd thing about this movie is that, in concept, it should have been interesting. A day and a night in the life of three lost souls in New York City - two young and one middle-aged. All three are connected by what appears to be an escort service of some sort. Mark Mann's film is straining to be a continuation of the "mumble core" cinematic philosophy of realism mixed with life's odd transgressions. Sadly, it is just transgressive and pointless. I felt I deserved a cookie for getting through it without falling asleep. Bad, Keanu! Bad!

No one really get it? Really? Great movie!

I am the only one who thinks differently. The movie is about a generation of people who are generally aimless and yet in their own minds they don't think so. The story is about the two girls, not Keanu Reeve's character. One of the girl says she likes humble nice guys, yet selectively dates only scumbags. The other girl believes she is an independent woman - both girls are actually prostitutes and would do anal for a little more money.

This movie was truly horrific. Nothing appealing about ANY of the charachters, which makes it a sure formula for disaster. OMG I used to love Keanu Reeves....what was he thinking?

I can't believe that there's a list of credits for this ridiculous exercise. They should all be ashamed.

A pair of women debating 'shit' versus 'shat.' A drunken woman toss and turn as she sleeps off a hard night of drinking. A man eating late breakfast ... describe a dream ... ask for ketchup ... then pour a dab of ketchup on his breakfast. He later videotapes a squirrel and some dogs at the park.

'Generation Um...' is a series of long, tedious, meandering scenes with no clear agenda or narrative. There's a cynical undercurrent the permeates every frame of this debacle, but whatever heady critiques were intended are overwhelmed by amateur-hour direction.

There's no good summation of 'Generation,' except to say it's simply three New Yorkers being mundane for one day. None of the scenes flow together well. The film as a whole is essentially a home video of three uninteresting characters being less than interesting.

The dialogue is sparse with an usually high ratio of 'profound' statements for every unremarkable line of poorly written crap. And every pseudo-philosophical thought sounds like it came out of an incredibly high stoner with an equally incredibly low IQ.

By the time the characters do have any meaningful, dramatic-ish interactions, these conversations - however 'honest' - are unearned. The three main characters spend the first third of the movie either not interacting or merely tolerating each other -- so it's incredibly abrupt when they suddenly open up to each other. Moreover, since the film makes almost no effort to establish any sympathetic moments for the main characters, it then becomes difficult to care about any of their 'heartfelt'/'honest' answers to personal questions late in the movie.

So, to put a bow on this - 'Generation Umm' makes little effort to make sense on any level, invents little time into establishing the characters with any sort of depth and results in a tangled mess of scenes that are absolutely not entertaining in any way.

But perhaps 'Generation, Um...' does the best job of summarizing the experience of suffering this movie: "Shit don't mean shit ... unless it means shit and it only means shit if you need it to mean shit."

And that is perhaps the most profound statement made in what is definitely one of the stupidest films of 2013. And it is very indicative of 'Generation Umm...' as a whole.

In short: 'Generation Umm...' is a failure of basic storytelling, resulting in a film not worth enduring.

This movie isn't meant to please anyone, hype you up or inspire you as the trailer would make it seem. Don't expect anything from it, just watch and feel like you would any piece of art. It's just a day in the life of some normal yet interesting characters portrayed with a humble, realistic vibe that allows you to experience the story as if you're one of them. If you are or know people like this, it's quite relatable. And I have no idea how they pulled off that crouching tiger wineglass thing.

boring and unattainable and lousy ... we ( my husband and I watched this disgusting and uninteresting movie far longer than we should have. Its not worth the price we paid to rent it. Don't bother with it its a lost cause.

It's sad to see how far a star can fall. Keanu: take some acting lessons already!
June 2, 2013
uuummm, why did I rent this??
June 3, 2013
Anyhting with Keanu in it is worth watching:-)
June 3, 2013
After 4 minutes of watching Keanu eat a cupcake I couldn't take anymore long, aimless scenes.
May 30, 2013
um....this movie really sucks. The camerawork gave me a headache, no story, bad acting, and no real point to anything in this mess. Keanu's career is in the toilet.
