Standing still – Blick zurück nach vorn: Directed by Matthew Cole Weiss. With Jon Abrahams, Amy Adams, Roger Avary, Xander Berkeley. Standing Still is the story of a popular yet drunken actor who reconnects with a group of his college friends for a wedding several years after graduation.

“The bad: This movie was a lousy wreck, which better resembled a WB sitcom than something that should be on the big screen. 25 minutes into the movie I was still thinking, u0026quot;who are these people??u0026quot; – there seemed to be very little character setup or development. For the most part, the acting was poor — again, it was more like watching u0026quot;Dawsonu0026#39;s Creeku0026quot; than an actual movie. The story was extremely basic, which is fine except that the dialogue was poorly written as well. The subplot with the groom-to-beu0026#39;s father was not necessary and distracted from the good vibes to the movie — it was hard to watch, but not in a u0026quot;Iu0026#39;m movedu0026quot; sort of way, but more in a u0026quot;I want to barfu0026quot; kind of way.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe good: The movie pretty very short, so however bad it is, at least itu0026#39;s over quickly. Which was good because otherwise I donu0026#39;t think I would have made it all the way through. Also, some of the women in the movie were pretty good to look at, which makes getting through the film a little easier.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eSeriouly, Iu0026#39;m not a high-brow movie viewer…I like a fun, dumb movie every now and then. But this movie was a wreck in most every way possible. Watch it for a great lesson in poor character development, sappy dialogue, and character clichés (the movie star character who seems happy but is actually very sad…how original).”
