Director: Steven Brill
Starring: Elizabeth Banks, James Marsden, Gillian Jacobs and Sarah Wright.
When this film first started I was ready to turn it off. It just wasn’t interesting me in any way. However, I kept it on and I’m glad I did because once the fun started it was very enjoyable. Of all the things to go wrong, everything went wrong for Meghan. I mean it’s not the best film but it’s a comedy and it ticks all the boxes for that genre. The film basically follows a woman as she walks from her one night stand to get to work on time. Elizabeth Banks is hilarious but she’s always been a great actress and I’ve always been a huge fan of hers.
I like how they really played on stereotypes and how people judge people for what they’re wearing. Like almost everyone Meghan meets thinks she’s a prostitute because she’s wearing a tight short dress and she’s wandering the streets. I thought it was a sad but true representation of our society today.
Rating: It’s not the best comedy ever but it has a good few laughs. I’d give it a 5.5/10.
