I couldn't believe the acting was as bad as previous reviews said. I watched for 10 minutes and it was sad how horrible the acting was. But the lines were really stupid too so it's not like the script writer gave them anything to work with or maybe the director is used to directing porn or something. I don't know where the problem lies, but if I had watched any more than 10 minutes I would have been really mad at myself and not even Amazon can refund time.
I'm not very picky about movies and usually ignore poor ratings because I don't mind cheesy....but couldn't get into this at all. I skipped through to the middle and there was an F-word plain and clear. How is this rated 7+? I can't trust the ratings on Prime Video now? Really upset...
the conflict seemed to be resolved for the lead character. Hard for me to understand as a "conflict" since I was paid less than nothing for decades of slave labor enriching homosexist narcophony elites in an exclusive homosexuality requiring state Loonie Verse Itty town. Interesting character development film for those who understand the "conflict" presented and resolved.
This easily one of the worst movies I have ever seen. Bad acting, bad directing, bad writing, just so mediocre. The girl has one annoying expression and every move she makes is so bizarrely premeditated. It's like the actress is directing every move she makes in her head "now i'm going to walk down the street....I hope the director likes my cute walk" The guy is just boring and the work friend has really bad lines to deliver. I liked the character Isabelle - she was authentic and believable.The story is completely worthless....yada yada yada. I lasted half way thru, tried skipping ahead a bit and things just got worse. Had to turn it off.
Does the main actress ever stop smiling? Don't answer. I really don't care. I lasted 15 minutes and I have a really high threshold for pain. How cringingly embarrassing for everyone involved... I'd be happy to lend them Bruiser for their next project.
Exactly as described, this movie is a little quirky but manages to keep our attention. I loved that the city of Hartford, CT (where I lived many years) is featured almost as a supporting character. The acting sometimes seemed to be a little too staged, but overall I came away from it with a great feeling and a smile.
