Kids Of Confusion (Film Thoughts: Me Him Her)

5f39c7d722fb86dab03c2a1ee1a796eeMax Landis, son of director John Landis, makes his directorial debut in “Me Him Her,” which is a story of three confused people living in Los Angeles. There’s Brendan, played by Luke Bracey, who is an actor in a procedural detective series, and is also a closeted homosexual, itching to come out. There’s his friend Cory (Dustin Milligan) his friend who he invited to visit from Florida, and there’s Gabbi (Emily Meade) who is a lesbian who is a lesbian who falls in love with Cory. Their lives intersect in a forced way, and they deal with confusions in their lives. First of all, in this day and age, is it still that much of a big deal – coming out of the closet? This film seems to be stuck in 1995. And why is it so hard for Gabbi to accept that she fell in love with a man, is it that difficult for her to swallow the concept of bisexuality when she already identifies as a lesbian? These are the issues facing the characters in this movie, and you know what? I couldn’t care less about any of these people. They all come across as entitled spoiled brats. Needless to say, I wasn’t very much invested in what happens to them by the end of the movie. My one big burning question – is Geena Davis so hard up that she took a stupid supporting role in here, playing Brendan’s mother. As bad as things come here, that would be the worst part.
