Dirty Girl Reviews
A LOL comedy with good drama inbetween, and a film brave enough to tackle hard issues about our parents, our sexuality, our friendships and more..."Dirty Girl" definitely has its moments and I did tear up at the song, well done kind of pop-art film! Loud colors, the hair and the wardrobe of the late 80s all make an appearance. Juno Temple rocks it again, I'm surprised she's still not that hit star but then again maybe she doesnt want to be, at least she's an indie queen ;) Intro of Jeremy Dozier is great, and Millo Jovovich in a real role (not kicking ass but) actually emotionally acting (and also not her husband's films). Props! Overall funny and heartfelt.
About every road trip cliche is combined with every gay best friend cliche is combined with every estranged teenager cliche. There's nothing original about this film's plot or execution. As tepid as it is, it doesn't offend one's sensibilities with cliche-piling, but that's about the best that can be said of it.
Juno Temple is charming and sometimes funny (even if her accent is nothing like what I heard in Norman), and Jeremy Dozier gives a strong performance in his film debut.
Overall, Dirty Girl is pretty boring, but it's pro-gay, post-sexual revolution sensibilities made me not mind it as much as I should have.
