Mini’s First Time

Despite the fantastic cast this movie felt amateurish from start to end.  The first mistake was the casting of the lead.  She isn’t bad or anything like that – I just think that the bar was set so high in other movies by the likes of Alecia Silverstone and others that it just didn’t feel real.  If you’re expecting a 17 year old to have the cunning and bravery of a woman twice that age the actress better be able to pull it off.  I think the second mistake was not knowing exactly what it was trying to be.  Is it a crime drama?  A thriller?  A black comedy?  In reality it was not convincing enough to fit into any of those categories so – coupled with the deficiencies of the lead actress – it felt more like an after-school movie.  I think it may have been better served to try to become something similar to Wild Things but it didn’t come close to that level of quality.  I could swear that in some scenes Alec Baldwin was just mailing it in.  It’s unfortunate that a movie with the likes of Moss, Baldwin and Goldblum had such a lousy script.
