MINI-REVIEW: Behaving Badly

Behaving Badly

Nat Wolff, Selena Gomez


August 1, 2014 (LIMITED)

Tim Garrick

Vertical Entertainment

1 hour 39 minutes



I'm just going to say this right now: the poster for this movie is one big fat lie to any Selena Gomez fan out there.  It might say that the film revolves around her, but in truth, it doesn't.  She is just the love interest to Nat Wolff's character, who is the protagonist of this unfunny movie.  "Behaving Badly" is a film that tries to be edgy and smart in how raunchy and crazy it can be, but it fails in the same way that Miley Cyrus does: in trying to act more adult, the film's actions proved to be childish if anything.  The cast is fine, despite most of the talented actors here not needing something like this on their resume.  Some jokes gave out a bit of a chuckle, but the vast majority of them all are unoriginal and just unfunny.  Plus, this movie brings absolutely nothing relatively new to the table, which it could have had the screenwriters tried to do something smart with this.  Overall, this movie is just a blatant rehash of any teen raunchy comedy you have seen, only this time it has Selena Gomez looking pretty and Elisabeth Shue overacting to annoying levels.  Do yourself a favor and skip this movie, unless this type of stuff is up your alley.  I will say this, the cameo they got in a jail scene about an hour into the film actually made me laugh, but only because of how relevant it was at the time of filming.

Hello viewers of this blog,

Due to recent comments of spam and profanity present from obnoxious kids who think they are the funniest people in the world, I would like to request that the comments posted here are in good taste, meaning that they have no Anti-Semitic remarks, profanity, sexual innuendo, or any insults to myself. You can criticize the review and give pointers on how to make them better, but how about we be adults about this. Ok? Thank you, and have a nice day.
