Mini Movie Review: Sierra Burgess Is A Loser (2018) #badmovies

Sierra Burgess Is A Loser
Romantic Drama

Sierra Burgess Is A Loser is a sad attempt by Netflix at being a romantic drama when truthfully it comes across as a mean-spirited yawn fest with nothing characters. If you took My Best Friend's Wedding, fused it with Mean Girls, stretched it out, make it blander and made the lead character even more nasty and horrible, this is what one may get. A girl uses someone else's picture and tricks a boy into falling for her. I'm sure there are a few rom-coms that have attempted this mistaken identity thing (You've Got Mail, The Truth About Cats and Dogs) & done it better. Sierra Burgess Is A Loser, on the other hand, is not one of them, as it condones the lead's actions and behaviour, such as catfishing & pretending to be disabled and sends out a terrible message: that it is okay to use people to get what they want. & making the girl insecure and unattractive looking shouldn't give her an excuse to be hideous and despicable through her actions. She even kisses the guy without him knowing, rom-com context aside, this would be considered as sexual harassment, or be it rape. One of the mean girls looks like Margot Robbie, the central romance is a bore, thus making it impossible for me to invest in their relationship, the characters are poorly developed with no personalities, the Asian girl is portrayed as a stereotypical Asian villain trope. Established actors in Alan Ruck (Ferris Bueller's Day Off) & Lea Thompson (Back To The Future) also feature, with Thompson, yet again and following on from direct-to-DVD duds, The Dog Lover and Left Behind appearing in a film with another questionable premise. This so-called romantic dramedy fails to do and offer anything remotely unique or entertaining and is far from heartwarming, rather this film is a loser.

Is It Worth Watching?
