To be fair, the cast works hard to bring depth and humanizing factors to their characters. Unfortunately, the script doesn't help whatsoever. The film doesn't have a clear tone. It's confused in a lot of ways. Does it want to be funny? Is it trying to make a statement about how hard being an individual can be? What is the point of using Bo as a "selling point" do for the plot? In fact, by using Bo in a manipulative way, the film diminishes her character and her worth. The focus doesn't really turn to her until the very last minutes of the film and by that point, it's too late to examine her as a person. Why bring in all of that nonsense about using her breasts for money and not allowing anyone to speak to her unless Hardy allows it? It comes off as just plain disrespectful to her character and to women in general. She's a pawn in Hardy's plot. Even Bo and Hardy's friendship, I use that term loosely, isn't very clear and frankly, nonsensical. Hardy's speech in the end, while he makes some good points, doesn't quite speak to anything that has happened in the film. It feels disingenuous and a monologue that isn't needed.
Rating: 1.5 out of 5
