Audience Reviews for Cool It Carol
Synopsis: Tale of sexy teenager Carol and her boyfriend who journey to free-spirited 1960s London to seek fame, fortune and a taste of the high life. But when the pair's desire for decadent adventure is spent, can they get out of the scene? i missed the opportunity to share in the grind house experience by about a decade. I had a very specific view of exactly what it means to be a grind house picture, a view tailored almost solely from the Rodriguez- Tarantino mashup. To me that word means little more than a movie about a girl with a machine gun for a leg. Cool it Carol wasn't exactly what i had in mind. Sure, there was plenty of elements that fit the bill. Like the extent to which the film exploits woman and sex in general. Carol kind of loves taking off her clothes, and as a result the is a lot of sexual activity. So much in fact that the film resembles a pornographic picture, except instead of showing the sex we only hear sounds of gratification and the characters are afterwords left with nothing but their guilt and sadness. But the film is surprisingly free of the kind of off-center energy that can be found within the grind house homage by Tarantino and Rodriguez. It's not an action film, and an explosion is about the most unlikely event that could occur. The film took it's ol time and had a rather healthy supply of character development. The problem was that it was so lacking in energy one would have a rather difficult time in suspending his or her belief in the picture. For a movie about two young people going to the big city, striking out from their parent's domain and resorting to selling their bodies for income, the picture is shockingly void of complications. There aren't even any drugs, kind of a must for this story. The only thing Cool it Carol has going for it is it's sexuality and strong characterization. It's a pleasurable watch for those two reasons, but it's not very effective in it's execution of it's cliche'd plot.
