Critic Reviews for New Best Friend
A campus drama-cum-whodunit that's obvious and exploitative even by low-bar youthpic standards.
The party scenes deliver some tawdry kicks. The rest of the film ... is dudsville.
Instead of trying to bust some blondes, [Diggs] should be probing why a guy with his talent ended up in a movie this bad.
Nobody seems to have cared much about any aspect of it, from its cheesy screenplay to the grayish quality of its lighting to its last-minute, haphazard theatrical release.
Audience Reviews for New Best Friend
Not terrible, but not very good, either.
New Best Friend is entertaining trash that we find ourselves engrossed in as much as we hate to admit it. Mia Kirsher delivers a stellar performance as Alicia, a college girl who overdoses under suspicious circumstances and the prime suspects are her new upper class filthy rich friends. Sheriff Artie Bonner (Taye Diggs) is called by the Dean (Edmund J. Kearney) to carry out a discreet investigation, since the school is dependent on the wealthy families of its rich students, and a scandal would jeopardize its reputation and consequently its income. But as he looks deeper into his investigations, he discovers that the seemingly innocent and perfect student Alicia might not be all that she appears to be. We've got sex, drugs, and nudity, Dominique Swain (playing the cheeky deviant Sydney) getting naked here and engaging in lesbian sex with Alicia. Meredith Monroe plays a darker role than her role as Andie on Dawson's Creek and is convincing as the Queen Bee of this elite clique.
Wait? Huh? What is this film about? hanh? Fitting in? "New Best Friend" is "Utterly Inane and ucomprehensible. Blurry Lesbian Sex,Drug parties,missing dialouge,and answers. This is one of the worst films to do about basicly nothing. Two Middle Fingers Up!" No More Comment!
