Grow Up! (Movie Thoughts: Almost Adults)

357424movieSomeone described this film as a movie version of ‘Girls,’ and I think it’s apt, because I felt the characters here are as annoying as the ones from Lena Dunham’s show. BFFs Mackenzie (Elise Bauman) and Cassie (Natasha Negovanlis) live in the same house and have known each other forever, yet for some strange reason, Mackenzie still has not confessed to Cassie that she is gay. Even her parents just shrug her coming out. I thought that for millennials, sexual orientation wasn’t a major issue, yet in Director Sarah Rotella’s film here, it becomes the major plot point. Besides that, though, I found nothing to like about the characters in the film and couldn’t care less if they kissed, died or had eggs for breakfast. Is it just old age that is making me react like this?
