Critic Reviews for The Full Picture
The story is stronger than the individual scenes, and the characters often talk like sitcom stars stuck in a drama. But there are moments of fun, with a particularly strong ending.
Audience Reviews for The Full Picture
Good character analysis and a little development. Strong script. Good acting, although all the characters are obnoxious. I would liked to have had more about the father, and maybe a little more sympathy for the mother. It was interesting how she used her camera as a weapon, and I did like the relationship twist 3/4 of the way through, when you find that things are exactly opposite of what the seem in one relationship. But I was disappointed that we didn't learn more about the main couple. Why are they doing what they do? Why would the girl WANT the boyfriend? And she's no great catch, either. Any of these people could be victims of justifiable homicide. . . .
The production quality is pretty weak, but there was something about this movie that I enjoyed anyway. The dialogue is realistic and quirky, and while the acting isn't great, somehow it managed to suck me in nonetheless. I doubt I'd be likely to sit through this again, but the characters are just enough fun that I really wanted to stick with it.
Bettina Devin is divine, and evil/scary. Josh Hutchinson is repulsive in a beguiling manner. Daron Jennings is such a welcome relief in such uncertain waters...charming, disarming, and thoroughly believable. His is the best performance. Love the film.
