Over the weekend I watched the movie Very Good Girls.
The movie is about two girls, on their last summer before heading out to college, trying to find their first “hook-up” so they won’t be the only virgins at college. The problem is…they both fall for the same guy, and when one starts seeing him without the other one knowing, you just know it’s a recipe for a disaster.
With an all-star cast, I expected it to shine, as it starred Elizabeth Olsen, Dakota Fanning, Ellen Barkin, Clark Gregg, Demi Moore, Richard Dreyfuss, Peter Sarsgaard and Boyd Holbrook.
While Elizabeth Olsen shone at times (and being my first glimpse at the “younger Olsen”, I was very impressed) Dakota Fanning just brought this movie down. Seemingly lifeless throughout, even when the character should’ve been showing something, the light in her eyes was dead until almost at the very end.
Personally, I’d say don’t waste a dime on this movie, and wait til it shows up on TV.
Rating: 5.5 out of 10.
People aren’t perfect. They make mistakes. Sometimes it’s harder to forgive yourself, then to get someone else to do it. But, people will surprise you. -Edward (Clark Gregg)
