You Get Me is the latest teenage thriller put out by Netflix, and unless you are really bored, it won’t be worth your time.
Tyler and his girlfriend Alison are doing just fine until one of her ex’s show up and show him that he really doesn’t know Ali at all.
So in a moment of drunkenness, they have a falling out and he goes off with Holly, an out-of-towner in town on vacation, thinking she’ll just be an end-of-summer fling.
But when the night is over he just wants to go back to Ali, until Holly shows up at school on Day 1. Will Tyler come clean with Ali? Or will he try to hide the secret as Holly tries her hardest to ruin it all?
Are there any lengths Holly won’t go through to bring her and Tyler together again?
It’s crazy how one person could change your life. That’s the thing about love. At first, everything about it seems to make sense. But the deeper you get, the more you realize you don’t know anything at all.
There are no giant A-list names in this movie, but Bella Thorne (Alison), Halston Sage (Holly) and Taylor John Smith (Tyler) all have long casting sheets (including Seth MacFarlane’s upcoming Orville for Sage), and play their parts well.
This is little more than your typical teenage thriller and keeps it semi-interesting throughout, but I don’t think people should waste their time on this one unless it’s a rainy summer day.
It only gets a 5.5 out of 10.
