Get the Girl unfortunately gets crushed by its own, voluminous preposterousness.
The film never feels honestly menacing, or gritty enough to have actual tension.
A staged kidnapping isn't the only thing that goes from botched to worse where the tone-deaf black comedy-thriller "Get the Girl" is concerned.
Glossy, noisy and a little bit dull, Get the Girl is the kind of the film you'd thought they'd stopped making
Get the Girl has a few intriguing touches.
Get the Girl never moves far beyond the shallow waters of post-modern deconstruction.
Ridiculous dark-comedy thriller [...] tries to subvert rom-com clichés. Instead it just subverts good moviemaking.
We've seen much of what this movie is offering in other pictures, challenging England to come up with something memorable to keep audiences engaged.
I rarely concern myself with the sexuality of characters in film, I think nine times out of ten a romance hinders more than it helps, but with Get the Girl I'd like to float you the idea of how drastically the script would be changed if the lead was gay. Keep everything else the same, but change is sexuality and you have (in my opinion) a much more enjoyable film. Obviously, that is not the case, so instead my takeaway from Get the Girl is two simple facts, the first was some new information, and the second was just confirming something I already knew:
1) There is a person on this Earth by the name of Jerry Purpdrank, and
2) Adi Shankar is a weird fuckin' dude.
