Mini's First Time Reviews
I personally am not the biggest fan of Nikki Reed on screen - I am sure she is a lovely person, but she's hard faced and she looks older than the characters she is playing (generally).
In this case, though, it kind of works because Mini is totally unredeemable. She is not a nice girl, and she does not have any revelation by the end that makes her change her ways. Yeah, you get that her mum had issues and she didn't have the most loving upbringing,but this girl is borderline psycho!
Enjoyable film if you don't pick at the flaws too much!
[font=Century Gothic]"Mini's First Time" is a gleefully nasty black comedy without much of a conscience. And I mean that as a compliment. The movie is not terribly original but it succeeds more than any of its ilk, simply through pure attitude which is the only way to go here. A good cast helps including Luke Wilson and Jeff Goldblum. And Alec Baldwin has never been more relaxed.[/font]
[font=Century Gothic]I would not suggest looking for a moral here but if you were, it is that maybe with adults like these, it is no wonder the kids are so screwed up. And birth control is definitely a good idea.[/font]
I tend to seek out those B Rate movies that usually don't get a second look. Sometimes It proves to be a huge waste of time, and I end up so bored I want to cry. But once in a rare occasion, I find a winner. This was certainly the case with Mini's First Time. I enjoyed this film immensely. It was a delightfully twisted story.
This film has a very noteworthy cast. Alec Baldwin, who is always top notch and very amusing. Carrie Ann-Moss, one of my new favorites since seeing her in Fido. Even Luke Wilson and Jeff Goldblum come along for the ride. Nikki Reed, who most recently played Rosalie in Twlight, illustrated Mini to a T. She was very deviant and delusive. The kind of girl that makes you love to hate her.
Mini's First Time is a sublime little tale of sex, murder, and blackmail. It is indubitably a movie that needs to be checked out. I noticed few Flixsterites have watched it and most have dubbed it "Not Interested". Please reconsider, you won't be disappointed.
"You are one sick little twist. You know that?"
Ms Reed was a co-writer on THIRTEEN. Here she plays virtually the same character. She appears to have intimate, personal knowledge of the life style of a teenage, "bad girl". Ms Reed's acting skills seem to be seriously limited. She has one basic expression thru out this movie.
This is a movie to skip. Baldwin & Moss carry most of the water. But, their efforts aren't enough to justify watching this flic.
