Entre la stira, la fbula y el comentario crtico (...) el inters se pierde y no convencen.

The highlight is when a female member of the Dandies bares her breasts, which is about as pointless as the rest of the film.

The result is mixed.

We get it, Lars. Actually, we got it some time ago. Guns are bad things. They kill people and Americans are obsessed with them. Can we move on now?

The film has the unmistakable imprint of [Lars] von Trier, with its heavy-handed tirade, masquerading as satire, assailing what he perceives to be America's obsessions with guns and violence.

the story makes no sense and depends upon people acting based on some crazed Dane's mental stereotype of Americans rather than actual human beings.

The scenario's practically straitjacketed in commentary. Von Trier's weak story doesn't help.

Unable to determine its goal, Dear Wendy is a tweener, ideologically doctrinaire on the one hand and a wannabe hot youth movie on the other.
