I Melt with You Reviews
Four best friends growing up made a secret pact that they remember during their annual get together. They made promises to each other and themselves with certain consequences if they didn't remember or execute their dreams. This year the promises have consequences with an impact of no return.
"Do you believe in heaven?"
"I wish I did."
Mark Pellington, director of Arlington Road, Henry Poole is Here, Mothman Prophecies, Going All of the Way, and Strangers, delivers I Melt with You. The storyline for this picture is interesting but not overly unique. I did enjoy watching some of the characters demise but the overall plot was cliché. The acting is good and the cast includes Thomas Jane, Rob Lowe, Christian McKay, Jeremy Piven, and Sasha Grey.
"I still don't know why I've done the things that I've done."
I randomly came across this on Netflix and decided to add it to the wish list. This was worth a viewing, but definitely very average and just okay. I wouldn't go to out of my way to see this, but I'd leave it on if you came across it channel surfing.
"I'm on vacation."
Good concept. Poor execution. Save yourself the two hours.
I came here to Rotten Tomatoes and to my surprise read all of these "clever" little reviews panning it. Wow. I seem to be in the minority here - but then again, episodic TV and cable channel releases make me want to SLIT MY WRISTS with their flat lighting, one dimensional stories and flimsy, robotic, predictably beautiful characters.
Maybe the movie struck a chord in me because I enjoy watching great acting and interesting, off beat stories that don't follow the typical, obvious Hollywood model.
There are no car chase scenes here . . . oh my. Maybe that's why some people didn't like it. There is little nudity. No love story. No couples cheating on one another behind each others backs. And there are no superheros, gangsters, guns, vampires, talent shows or even one single dance competition in the entire script!
Well . . . one can easily see that this originally written and expertly executed flick is not for the average movie goer . . .
The message was essentially "the easy way out is death". Not a good message. Especially for people who may struggle with depression.
