One-line Reviews (12)

It is a coming of age lacking the right punch of drama, not capitalizing on the talents and the quirk, and going for a sappy postcard of an ending that felt tacked on and not forgivable as a conclusion.

This movie is a surprisingly sweet coming of age tale about a boy on his way up and a woman on her way down.

It was truthful yet entertaining (mostly due to the Cast & heartfelt writing).

The beginning was a tad bit slow.

It becomes a repetitive and predictable bore that meanders around to a boring more or less uneventful ending.

Kim would strike it big as the perpetually horny Samantha in "Sex and the City" although men of a certain age will best remember her as a hot gym teacher in "Porky's" nicknamed "Lassie" because she loved to have sex in the gym laundry room where the smell of stinky jockstraps while engaging in coitus would eventually get her howling.

" The problem ends up being it is all real boring.

In addition to Ingram, Kim Cattrall as the ex-porn star and Brian Dennehy as the teenager's grandpa are quite enjoyable to watch and their characters do have a bit of historical and personal depth to them.

It is a coming of age tale about the Napoleon-clone, Tobe, who graduates from high school a virgin (oh the horror!

The movie was just boring is all I'm saying, ants in my pants waiting for it to get over.

Kudos to the actors and to the creator of the premise in terms of a coming of age story.

It is the odd and unique storyline that makes "Meet Monica Velour" such an enjoyable movie, and the permeated sense of real life as well.
