Movie Reviews

Hilarious satire, wonderful wit, a must!
Breck Stewart | San Francisco, CA USA | 02/04/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Let me just say that I absolutely LOVED this movie. And let me also say that have left my teen years some 20 years ago. I am 33 and usually hate to have to suffer through any teen-oriented comedy like "American Pie" I saw recently which I found hopelessly unfunny, boring and stupid. And most of the time, I don't even bother to try watching any other recent films dealing with young people's awakening about sex issues. This said, I happened to catch "Jailbait" on cable recently and was instantly sucked into the deeply effective editing and camera work involved, along with the very satirical directing and performances. Even though the subject of statuary rape is a serious one, here it is treated in such a way that there is an awareness of the fact that this is high camp cinema and nothing depicted should be treated seriously. I was particularly impressed with the two young leads which have been brilliantly directed into delivering performances that are in total harmony with the whole tone of the movie. This is a movie making fun of the whole "teen-movies phenomenon" all the while being totally aware of the fact that it is itself a "teen movie" but destined towards a more mature audience. Many potentially offensive subjects here treated as jokes but the director was brilliant enough to let us the audience see that this is a movie who doesn't take itself seriously. Everything is so farfetched (with often hilarious results) that it tells us that the filmmaker expected nothing else than entertaining its audience with outrageous but finely tuned acting parodies and well-crafted camera work. I have seen many teen movies such as "Scary Movie" I and II, "American Pie" I and II and none of them compares to the wit and cleverness "Jailbait" displays. A satire is probably the most difficult thing to achieve in cinema. It has to contain a balance between outrageous stunts and self awareness. Most teen movies pile up the gross factor, hoping to make audiences laugh. But here, even though no joke cliché is left unturned, it is done in a constant parody mode which I truly enjoyed. I don't know why the reviews here were so negative regarding this little jem. Perhaps as I said before, this is probably a movie adult would enjoy more than teenagers. I for one, who is a very harsh critic concerning movies, found this one able to do what most films can't: entertain the hell out of me..."
IT WOULD BE 5 STARS
A. G. You | Badnews, VA | 05/20/2004
(4 out of 5 stars)

"ok, I just got this movie, and I liked it in the first place so it was nice to see it again in a lil better quality, my whole problem with this DVD is the lack of extras, or better yet the lack of having the semi-documentary of the actual Guy the movie was derived from, every time I saw this on MTV right afterwards they would tell the true story... what happened to that? other than that great flick, can see why people think its not so good, but those people are the ones that just wont get it in the first place."
Not bad, Not great

"This is a movie worth buying. It was not what I expected but it was also fairly amusing I would give it 3 1/2 stars. The movie discussed an important topic which is more often than not ignored in today's world. I have seen girls try to get back at ex-boyfriends by calling rape and later admitting to the lie. I thought it had a decent script but that the director tried to many silly shots to force the humor down your throat. I own this movie and do not regret spending $12 on it, when other dvd's are going for $30"
