The Blue Tooth Virgin Reviews
Sam asks David to take a look at his latest screenplay and let him know what he thinks. So David does just that... and absolutely detests the screenplay. It's some ridiculously confusing sci-fi, murder mystery story with bizarre characters - and David literally can't think of anything good to say about it. So when Sam asks David to tell him his thoughts, things get very awkward. Awkward and pretty funny. The screenplay Sam writes is called "The Blue Tooth Virgin" by the way, and there are many points in this movie where they comment on how horrible that title is.
Sam: "I'm not a plot guy, I'm a character guy".
David: "Good movies are about character".
- Very true. Characters are important, and I liked the characters in "The Blue Tooth Virgin". They were realistic. Not boring... which is sometimes the case with 'realistic' characters. I liked the editing, the direction and the dialogue too. Mostly the dialogue. It's funny. Realistic. Sorry, I keep using the word realistic. I'm just very used to seeing characters in movies seem SO phony. The dialogue and characters are really important to "The Blue Tooth Virgin". Don't let the seemingly simple premise stop you from giving this movie a chance. As someone who would love to write movies one day (if I ever have any good ideas) the world these characters live in really appealed to me.
"The Blue Tooth Virgin" actually feels like an hour and a half long episode of a TV show. Is that a bad thing? I don't think so. Because if it were a TV show, I would definitely watch it. It may not be the kind of movie you could watch over and over, but I would recommend that anyone even remotely interested in writing or movies should check this one out at least once.
A movie about writing a movie. It's been done before, but this film turns out to be just what a screenwriter would like to offer. It lampoons the industry it serves while questioning the true reasons thousands flock to L.A., script in hand, to take on the motion picture world.
Sam (Austin Peck) has just completed a new script that he feels is destined for greatness. He could use a break. It has been several years since his failed television show has been on the tube. He gives the script to his best friend (Bryce Johnson) to read. He does, but he hates it. He tries to give Sam the news gently, but their relationship is strained when they fight over it.
The story doesn't fall into the usual traps, instead it unfolds much like a stage play with long scenes of the characters just talking. The interaction is what makes the characters interesting. The scenes evolve much the way they would in real-life.
