What works in this movie is chemistry. A lot of the rest is lacking, but two charming leads keep you watching when the film delves into strange, cringe-worthy territory.
Great cast and great comedy. An entertaining watch.
I had a few problems with the end of the film though. For one, whilst I enjoyed the plot twist, it came out of nowhere – there was nothing prior to suggest or foreshadow it. The Jessica-Robbie plot-line utterly confused me because of how impractical and 12-year-old-boy-fantasy it was. The ending at the school graduation was boring, and didn't leave me on a high – rather, it was a let down compared to the rest of the film. The last 20 minutes or so of the film did feel a bit thrown together, and took away from the film.
Overall though, this was a fun watch.
An interesting premise and intriguing protagonist are just about the only unique things about this film – it follows suit with the mass-produced, trashy Netflix teen flicks of 'To All the Boys I've Loved Before' and 'The Kissing Booth', but fails to provide any cinematic artistry.
I've never felt so content to sit and watch a character in silence, experiencing their every emotion, thinking their every thought, feeling their every heartbeat.
