An honest opinion

"First off, I want to clear the air about something. Yes, I am a fan of music and yes, I do sometimes listen to the Backstreet Boys. I saw this movie because a friend of mine recommended it... NOT because I am a rabid BSB fan looking for some reason to shred Leighanne Wallace Littrell's abilities to pieces. Having said that, on with the review... From a technical aspect, the movie was moderately well done. Given that it was a low budget independent film, understanding must be granted. Yes, the post production clean up left a lot to be desired and there were times in the movie that the sound did not match up properly. No big deal. I am a rabid fan of Kevin Smith movies and there were occasions in several of his movies, even the later ones, that suffered from the same problem. Could the movie have fared better with a studio backing and big money marketing? Of course. However, it did not have the luxury and the result was better than a lot of independent movies. Onto the acting... there is not a movie out there, not even one in my well loved collection, that has flawless acting. Some reviews would lead you to believe that Leighanne has no acting abilities whatsoever... I definitly would have to disagree. I have a whole new respect for her and was quite intrigued by all of the performances delivered.Why am I disappointed, then? Well... the movie itself didn't disappoint me, even with it's fairly predictable story line... we all need a good chick movie once in a while and Olive-Juice easily fits the bill. No, what disappoints me is that so much of the marketing done for the movie seems to center around the Backstreet Boys. Given that two members had brief cameos and one song made the soundtrack, I was quite puzzled over the fact that the front of the movie box itself was taken up almost by a full third with bright contrasting colors, stating that AJ McLean and Brian Littrell were in the movie. It feels to me that someone, somewhere made a desperate attempt to cash in on some of the success earned by the BSB by the marketing done with this movie. In my humble opinion, the plan backfired. The movie should stand on it's own credentials and be sold only by the acting and the story, NOT by personal and intimate affiliations held by anyone involved in the movie. I was left with a bitter taste in my mouth, not at any flaws in the movie itself, but in the fact that someone did not have enough faith in the movie and felt the need to "buy" audiences by largely glamorizing the love between a pop superstar and his wife."
