So I went and saw Hard Candy yesterday ... and I don't really know what to tell you. I liked the setup. The trailer already implied that the seemingly innocent teenager would turn the tables on the thirtysomething guy she met over the intarwebs. I was curious to see how it would play out, and to find out whether the girl's performance merited all the great reviews she's been getting. She really was good. But, disappointingly, the movies falls right into the bucket of complaints I've had lately - interesting premise, deteriorating into ever more unlikely scenarios, and plot twists just for plot twists' sake. Just another one of those scripts that got sold on its elevator pitcch, and just another story that does not reflect anything anywhere near real life. Bummer. I wanted to like it, but I was disappointed. Good thing I only wasted five bucks on it because I have a discount card.
