Can Zac Efron become a serious dramatic actor? Find out now. We are your friends.
|"Zac, stop worrying about how |
bad the movie is
and just keep staring at my boobs."
While the actual story is dull and disingenuous, We Are Your Friends looks spectacular, has a limited but pulse pounding electronic soundtrack and features a stunning palette of colors. Fans of Spring Breakers will definitely take note of various thematic elements that echo Harmony Korine's modern masterpiece. Also, the repeated use of the recorded line "I like it here" is a definite tribute to the 2012 film that is hard to go unnoticed when set against the same backdrop of misled youth gone awry. Unfortunately for Joseph, his first full length film is too light and never informs audiences of its real story. Is this supposed to be a Rocky of the EDM movement? Is it supposed to be another portrait of lost youth? Or is it meant to be just another movie about star crossed lovers set in the modern drug scene of dance music? The script is confused and the actors never have a chance to do anything worthwhile when challenged by an end of summer mess like this. And still, Efron's face cannot emote.

If you're in love with Zac Efron and you want to look at Ratajkowski's stunning figure for a while, you'll enjoy this. But that's about all you get. This is a paper thin presentation of today's youth wrapped up in a pretty package of attractive actors and bad writing. Most true EDM fans will turn their noses up at this dim witted attempt to cash in on their musical love. If you're considering seeing this just know what you're walking into. I can't even count the amount of times I rolled my eyes during this flop.
