A Nice Girl Like You (2020) – AVAILABLE ON DVD FROM DECEMBER 2ND!

Based on a well know memoir by Ayn Carrillo-Gailey. The film follows Lucy (Lucy Hale) who is part of a quartet.  Lucy enjoys playing the violin at significant events such as weddings and other types of big celebrations. Lucy is also in a relationship with her boyfriend. At the start of the film, it’s evident that Lucy is uncomfortable with her relationship, particularly when it comes to the bedroom department.

A-Nice-Girl-Like-You-Main-1

But Lucy’s relationship turns for worse when her boyfriend is caught watching adult videos. Lucy is feeling frustrated and tired of having her boyfriend trying to make her be someone in the bedroom she isn’t, so she asks her boyfriend to choose between the adult films or her. Her boyfriend packs up, and Lucy is dumped. But Lucy begins to question what she knows about sex and what she might be missing out on. Lucy gets curious and determined to learn more, making a wild list.  She won’t be doing the researching on her own though.  Lucy is joined by her fellow quartet members who will give advice and join her on many trips, all to help Lucy find a new self-discovery and perhaps a new love interest along the way.

A-Nice-Girl-Like-You-Main-2

The main character of Lucy was disappointing as a lead. She consistently makes unwise choices and comes across more of a follower when it comes to life.  It is sad to watch a girl like Lucy wanting to change many things and try to impress someone who would rather watch porn than be with her. I also found this character unfunny, silly and somewhat depressing for the full duration. What makes it even worse is that I feel the actress Lucy Hale is generally trying to bring something tangible to the screen. Lucy’s friends are a minor positive element in this film, particularly actor Adhir Kalyan. The film’s music, to my surprise, is the most positive element of this film even though it doesn’t always fit the tone or mood of the scene.

A-Nice-Girl-Like-You-Main-3

As romance film, romance is present, but it’s hugely forced. The love interest shows up just about everywhere the lead character goes, including when she visits the sex shop for the very first time with her friend (yeah, what are the odds, yawn!). The process is the same over and over again. Lucy does something embarrassing, and in response the cute guy smiles, and thinks Lucy is excellent no matter what. It’s completely unrealistic and unbelievable as a romance.

A-Nice-Girl-Like-You-Main-4

Let’s talk about the comedy. Most of the jokes here come from Lucy being surrounded by consistent awkwardness and put in uncomfortable situations. Lucy visiting an adult shop and putting on what she thought was lip gloss on her lips only to find it was a sexual enhancement is just one of the many examples. Immature gags, including a scene where a horse is passing wind and doing a massive poo as Lucy tries to focus on playing her violin at a wedding is just another prime example of poor taste. I’ll confess- no laughs were had from me during this entire film.

A-Nice-Girl-Like-You-Main-5

Overall, I am incredibly disappointed with this film on so many levels. Lucy Hale once again is generally trying, but her character is weak, silly and filled with cringe moments from start to finish. The attempted humour here is awful and off-putting to the point that I almost turned the film off and gave up. The film’s plot is just sad and could have delivered a much better message such as it’s ok to be yourself or don’t let others influence you etc. Instead, the film is a mess with no real purpose or meaning, and when it tries, it changes its mind within seconds.  I’m surprised this film is based on a famous memoir, because for me it is a strong contender for the worst movie of 2020.
