I love the show catfish, but I could not get into the movie.

This movie will absolutely blow your hair back! I was completely enthralled with the mysteries of this story as they unfolded! If you use the internet socially (like everyone) you won't be able to turn this off, or forget it when it's over.

"Jaw Dropping" and "Gripping" states the cover of Catfish. I found the film to be neither. While the documentary is interesting at times, there are no truly amazing moments. Probably the most appealing aspect of the filmed report is how easily any of us might fall into the same type of relationship that Nev, the main character, did. And if you watch the Bonus (interviews), you know just how much he really does owe to the editor for making him look good in the film. I can't say I would have been as non-plussed and apathetic as he is depicted when "the" honest discussion takes place. Ultimately the film speaks to the loneliness of a generation who only know how to present themselves without flaws to other perfect people. Facebook,,, chat rooms . . . do people still meet offline any longer?
