Be Somebody full movie review - Cheesy Young Romance Movie -With Something to Say that Speaks to the Viewer
It might just be the mood I'm in, or the fact that I've been up so late tonight, but this movie made me feel something more than the average teen romance movie has in a long time.
I chose to watch this movie tonight because it happened to be uploaded onto my preferred streaming site just today, and it looked like something I could watch without really having to focus on it. While it definitely wasn't the kind of movie that required you to watch every minute of it, I still found myself pausing it every time I had to go out of ear shot. Something about this quiet film, with its very straightforward plot and unembellished characters, is just different enough to make it impactful. It reminded me that the best films are ones you don't have any expectations about at all. You don't see them coming. The acting is a little underwhelming, but it isn't a film that really asks for too much from the actors to begin with. It manages to accomplish it's goal of entertaining, without trying to be something more. Because of that, it left me feeling perfectly content. Sometimes, that's all I want from a film.
