Not Cool is a great film, but only if they change it from great to the worst. I'm personally insulted by this movie on so many different levels.
- I Hate Everything
Not Cool is a 2014 romantic comedy produced by Steeltown Entertainment and distributed by Starz Digital Media. The film stars Shane Dawson, who was also the director, co-producer, and editor, Cherami Leigh, Drew Monson, Michelle Veintimilla, and Lisa Schwartz, and written by Dan Schoffer.
Why This Movie Is "Not Cool"
- Terrible and unsubstantial plot.
- Awful acting and unrealistic dialogue, except Cherami Leigh's.
- Attempts at comedy that just come off as awkward than actually funny.
- Unlikable and two-dimensional characters.
- Scott (Shane Dawson) is constantly told by others that he's attractive. For a film starring, directed, co-produced, and edited by Dawson himself, this just comes off as egotistical and pretentious for him.
- Each character is some sort of stereotype: the homeless guy that eats his faeces, the flamboyant bitchy gay guy, the religious Hindu with an accent, the mentally insane aunt, the alcoholic father, etc.
- The relationship subplot just feels forced and happens because ... it has to.
- Most of the main cast are in their 20s which makes it impossible to believe they're still in high school.
- Nearly everyone just screams their dialogue.
- Terrible and obvious green screen in the car scenes.
- The movie expects us to show sympathy for the characters because one of their mothers have passed away from cancer, while on the other page, it makes fun of disabilities like mental illnesses and blindness. Hence, the movie is already contradicting itself.
- Speaking of comedy, the jokes are beyond offensive in every category.
- The wordplay, line delivery, and dialogue, in general, are straight-up abysmal.
- This movie even has the audacity to make rape jokes, which makes them the most tasteless and offensive jokes in the entire movie.
- Speaking of rape, the villain literally does exactly that to Scott and gets away with it scot-free.
- This film can't even go a single minute without a sex joke of any kind, or any other offensive joke for that matter.
The Only Redeeming Quality
- Cherami Leigh did a semi-decent performance as Tori, despite how awful the material was given to her.
- Cherami Leigh would later play Makoto Niijima from Persona 5 and Asuna Yuuki from Sword Art Online.
- Shane Dawson & Cherami Leigh were born on the same day.
