Beautiful, horrifying and intense. The movie begins and ends with these poems for each character that carry double meanings. The story is incredibly heart breaking and it's sad that this was a reality for some people. Incredible performances, incredible editing, incredible soundtrack and more. Just a great all around movie.
This is a prime example that even with a talented cast bad writing will completely ruin a movie. Get a job was not funny and felt like a bunch of unnecessary lewd jokes crammed into an already bad script.
I didn't feel any sort of connection to any character because I knew nothing about any of them. They don't flesh out the characters at all and then suddenly each one gives their own sob stories, which were definitely emotional but I didn't know anything about these people other then "they're actors and their selfish" so it felt really out of place being the first insight into their characters. The only thing I knew about Emma was that she was gay, which rubs me the wrong way since this movie is about to be how being gay doesn't change who you are and when they don't show any of her other than just being gay I feel like it doesn't show that message well. The whole plot just felt so contrived as well, I mean I get it's supposed to be cheesy and I feel like the actors did a good job of that but after one minute of telling them why it's okay to be gay the characters who went to the effort to plan a whole other prom without her are suddenly all "we're so sorry!" I thought that the lighting was cool and that the sets were great but some of it still felt clunky because it was directly the musical and didn't translate well. (in my opinion) The songs were also very obviously recorded, which I expected but the shifts between talking and recorded song were so blatant that it took me right out of it. Overall a fun experience that sends a good message but I didn't think it was very good.
