Havoc (2005)

Two rich surburban teenage girls decide to step into the wild side and join an East L.A gang.

I’ve read some pretty bad reviews of this movie…and so wanted to see just how horrible it is. Here’s what I think…It just tries way too hard to shock you…without actually shocking you…Sure you see some drugs…sex…but hardly any real fight…gun shooting…or any of that sort…and even if you see any of it on screen…would it really shock you…I mean these kids wanted…I repeat wanted to join the ‘dangerous’ underworld…nothing would shock you at this point right? It wasn’t as if they were squeaky clean kids being thrust into a dangerous world. Plus you know I’m sure its much harder to infiltrate a gang that whats portrayed.

And the kids…they are some of the most idiotic pathetic obvious fakers you would ever see on screen. I mean seriously…you would probably hate them… Some bored, attention seeking rich white kids trying to act and talk street…how do they even survive in their own school?…I’d like to know that. And the actors…I guess they wanted to act in an ‘edgy’ film…or simply…they needed the money. So overall…I guess I agree with all the other reviews…I did not like this movie.

She’ the Man (2006)

A friend of mine recommended this movie. She told me that it was a funny movie. I wasn’t really too keen on it. I’ve outgrown watching teen flicks…they no longer appeal to me…but I do watch them from time to time. And if you’re not having too good a day…and just want to sit back and watch a movie where you don’t have to… pretty much think…then teen flicks are it…so are romantic comedies by the way.

So I finally watched it.What can I say…its pretty much for the tween/teen population…with plenty of good looking 20 somethings still playing teenage roles. Amanda Bynes still looks like she’s playing her role of Holly from What I Like About You. The story: Viola(Amanda) disguises as her brother Sebastian so she could join the schools boys soccer team…the point being , to show that she is as good as any boy at playing soccer. Viola’s/Sebastian’s roomate is Duke, who has a crush on Olivia but Olivia has a crush on Sebastian…and along the way, Viola/Sebastian falls for Duke…and so occurs some comical mishaps. OK so the movie is funny but there wasn’t any real laugh out loud moments.And of course it is predictable too.I think it would have been a pretty decent movie for the genre…if not for the overflow of cheese. The scene where Viola/Sebastian had her friends act like they were lusting over her were over done. One friend was enough. And they had to make Duke disapprove of Sebastians objectification of girls?? And near the end they had Duke’s friend profess his love for the nerdy girl??? How much cheesy moments can they throw into a movie?

Overall though, its a fun movie for the kids,with good looking people and a pretty good sountrack filled with fairly recent pop tunes that were very fitting for the film.If you love teen flicks I’m sure you love this one too.
