Critic Reviews for Race You to the Bottom
Although more than a little familiar in its road movie-style romantic banter and bickering, the film is easy to take for a number of reasons, including the witty and frequently caustic dialogue.
Self-consciously edgy and romantically limp.
An illuminating glimpse into some of the more challenging complications that contemporary relationships can present.
Interesting, well-acted debut feature from writer-director Russell Brown.
Brown's screenplay and direction, both economical and unshowy, sketch character dynamics in crisp terms that resist the temptation to explain all, beg sympathy or heighten drama for purely histrionic purposes.
Audience Reviews for Race You to the Bottom
An interesting premise, acted out by completely unbelievable cast. The main draw for me was Justin (Green Arrow) Hartley, but he has all of five inutes of screen time and even he looked like he knew this was beneath him. No pun intended.
Amber Benson makes these movies, they are small, but, have this kind of heavy substance to them. I think its why I like her. I also like movies written from the heart, mind, and soul, not just eye candy in mind, so, yeah, most movies i like, no one has heard of and most do not like if they do on my recommendation. I'm pretty sure this would be one of those. Why i like it, i have moved in conservative circles most of my life, not so much by choice, as by default, and homosexuality is a big no-no, in find a lot of aspects of sexuality are. At the same time, i have always had friends who were gay or bi-sexual, and raised by a liberal single mom who had many gay friends herself in the 70s. So the former cons. issue, some of my FB friends will shake their heads at my obvious black sliding into sin for watching this movie, while others will probably be interested. Why i like this movie. Aside from the fact i see a bit of the writers heart in it. I have known very, very few ppl who have NOT had some kind of feeling or experience that was not, to some degree gay. Mostly in childhood or puberty, and mostly pretty benign. My won would fall under the latter, in kindergarten, the very first crushy feeling was for a girl, i was five, so, pretty much, no sexual connotations there, but, i thought she was the most beautiful thing I had ever seen and i was enamored with her, and got in trouble for hugging her because, "girls do not hug girls", lame. And in my young childhood, there was some physical curious exploration with both boys and girls So, this movie deals with 2 people who are in a secret relationship that is both cheating on their BFs, as well as that one is gay, one is straight, by definition, but, theirs is a straight, per say, relationship. They blurred lines many have int heir sexuality, which i find realistic. it deals with the pain of doomed relationships, also realistic, and i just really liked the heart of it, even if the acting was off sometimes, and the plot and writing was not the best in all places. As a writer myself I know that perfection does not exist, except maybe on some occasions, Joss Whedon can hit a full on home run, this is more the kinds of movies i strive to write. Speaking to me in a movie or tv show is nearly impossible for me, i am always re-writing it in my head, and can see the end coming far too early, and its ruined for me. This one did speak to me, so, i give if many kudos. If it not something that will make you fell icky, rent it online. DO IT!
Tried having its own perspective but like most of Indies, its ambition was discounted by the immature directing, writing & acting.
