A Year and Change online movie review - Its Been Done So Much Better Before
The movie is just plain bad. My GF has been a huge Jamie Chung fan, so her and a six pack convinced me to try and sit through it. First time director movies are usually awesome or horrible..and this movie was not awesome.
A good romance movie is always fun to watch, but this just seems so contrived that is is tough to watch. While the acting isn't bad at all, the direction was all over the place. The movie seems like it was shot with beauty in mind, but completing lacking in story and continuity.
It looks like this is the director's first movie, which he also wrote and produced, so maybe the story was close to his heart, but it really was just an awfully directed and written movie.
LOL - I checked the Rotten tomatoes score and it was 90%, so I'm thinking the Director and his friends/family probably voted themselves.
I don't mean to sound mad at the director, but if you're going to make me waste 90 minutes of my life and night out with my buddies, at least learn your craft.
