Here's a boy meets
girl woman movie with a twist.
At first it seemed like this would be something like Napoleon Dynamite meets a retired porn actress... just without all those things that made Napoleon Dynamite except a main-character look-alike.
It turns out Tobe (to be?) has more to him than he seemed to have at the start of the movie - and the story wasn't just about meeting Monica and living out an impossible dream... but actually an introspective tale about life, with all its ups and downs and twists of fate. How the golden age just wasn't all it was cracked up to be, but at the same time that it is what you make it. Old but gold, right?
Young and scared... scared like it's not like in the movies. The wisdom comes creeping. And there's surprisingly little sex considering the theme of the movie... was what I thought, until it takes that turn you knew it would take and oh man. Awkward.
It went better than I thought it would, though. It's got a message. Dustin Ingram and Kim Cattrall were great too, close, and hey there's Brian Dennehy too! It didn't play out like I was expecting... though I really don't know what I was expecting. Either way it played out good.
If you're wondering if it's a real story btw: it's not.
rated 3/5: not bad
