This film takes you on a journey with 5 very different teens, a jock, a rocker, a nerd, a cheerleader, and an outspoken teen named Normandy who are forced my their parents to connect the old fashion way...without electronics for 30 days and attend a mandatory weekly get together. There are plenty of antics and laughs to be had as you see the teens stumble through the adjustment. Will boredom rain or will the teenagers discover a hidden truth about life and the value in our human connection and shared experience? Normandy is My Name is a hilarious and heartwarming film with an essence of Juno mixed with a Napoleon Dynamite flare.
- Lazy Is Its Middle Name 7/25/2020 12:00:00 AM by niaz_islam
To sum up the entire movie one one word will be enough and that is 'lazy'.
The writing was lazy, their wardrobe were lazy, makeup was lazy, location scouting was lazy, camera shots were lazy, and also the main characters were lazy with their expression and dialogue delivery. Not only the timing of their dialogues are off, but also the editing was terrible. They repeated the same shot over and over to fill up story gaps. The storyline leaves out the main theme of the struggle of the absence of digital device throughout the movie and focus on the forced friendship between five teenagers.
Even Not Recommended For The Lazies.
