The thing that's killing me though is the amount of backlash it's getting from mainstream audiences. It's a social commentary on how batshit crazy the party culture is in the United States right now (it really does a great job of capturing just how insane it is) and everyone is just saying it's a borderline porno with no plot. It's a lot to take in and the story is told in non-linear fashion with a lot of voiceovers and other abstract filmmaking techniques I can completely understand someone absolutely hating it (Like I said earlier, there were parts of it I hated.) Everyone is entitled to their opinion, just know what it's trying to accomplish before writing it off as a mindless piece of shit people.
It just doesn't look good to me. And with it coming out the same weekend as The Croods, Olympus Has Fallen, and whatever the one with Tina Fey/Paul Rudd is I don't see it doing amazing. Most people will write it off as a raunchy teen cash in movie.
(unless there is a part where we see selena gomez and Vanessa hugdens makeout)
