Beautiful Mandy Lane isn't a party girl but, when classmate Chloe invites the Texas high school student to a bash in the countryside, she reluctantly accepts. After hitching a ride with a vaguely scary older man, the teens arrive at their destination. Partying ensues, and Mandy's close pal, Emmet, keeps a watchful eye on the young males making a play for Mandy. Then two of the students are murdered.
Everyone wants to fuck Amber fuckin Heard, too bad there's a fuckin-psycho killer in their way. A party with the cool-kids. A leap of faith. Locker room chit-chat. A weekend getaway. A Hell on Wheels ranch-hand. Tits at the window. 68, you do me I owe you 1. A shotgun blow-job. A bullet to the face. A Bird's-eye view gets cut to shit. A bloody French-kiss. A final hug. A broken oath. Predictable with a what-the-fuck twist. Anson fuckin Mount is cool as fuck as Garth the Cowboy. His 8 lines of dialogue are fuckin brilliant. If you want to see Amber naked, watch The Informers. If you want to see a good slasher watch something else. If you like Anson fuckin Mount and you have 90 minutes to waste, then watch this.
I really don't get the hype/support this flick gets. It looks better than every horror movie ever, and the opening 20 minutes made me think that it was going to be clever. Then it turns into a stereotypical teen slasher, but continues to act like it's still being clever.
And why, exactly, do all the boys love Mandy Lane? I mean, Amber Heard is very attractive, but Mandy Lane is less interesting than my toaster. Was that the clever part? All the boys want to do her even though she has the personality of a fern? Is that some sort of commentary on something? The end certainly wasn't the clever part because it was super obvious, so that must have been it. Just too clever for me to get, I guess.
On the upside, that one song by Professor Murder is in it and that song rules.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
As soon as Mandy looked to her stereotypical "uncool" friend when being invited to the pool party by the "cool" kids, at the very beginning of the film, I knew she was in on whatever massacre was going to eventually occur.
While I am thankful after the twist was finally revealed that the filmmakers did not give us a long, drawn out explanation as to why Mandy is a manipulative, sociopathic killer I was hoping for a better ending. It would have been fantastic if Garth would have sat up and killed her, then collapse and die himself.
Thankfully I am not a boy because I would be offended that I am lumped up with everyone else in reference to…
Jonathan Levine's "All the Boys Love Mandy Lane" is a nicely shot horror film that scares off its audience with unlikable characters and a story that is obvious and uninspired. The film may be good for a few cheap thrills, but it is an ultimately limp experience.
The story focuses on Mandy Lane. All the boys at her high school seem to want a piece of the pretty blonde. When she is invited to go to a friend's secluded ranch house, slasher-style mayhem breaks loose. This story is familiar and unfolds like one of Roger Ebert's dead teenagers movies. There are pot-smoking young people who are bound to be knocked off by the mysterious killer, and the virginal Mandy Lane…
There she is boys, Mandy Lane. Untouched, pure. Since the dawn of junior year men have tried to possess her, and to date all have failed.
All the Boys Love Mandy Lane... da fuck why?! We are used to characters in horror films acting idiotic in the face of danger, but this film introduces the stupidity long before any danger rears its head. Apparently all the horndogs in this small town are completely infatuated with Mandy Lane because she's the only girl that hasn't slept with all of them.
If that wasn't bad enough, all the slutty girls are constantly in desperate need for Mandy's approval as well. So all these horned up teenagers, male and female, that are…
All the Boys Love Mandy Lane is the most disappointing thing since my son.
I thought she was ok.
"Die with me!!"
"I think I'll finish high school first"
I actually enjoyed the twistedness, the initial buildup, the surprising ending, its cinematography and the quiet and mysterious personality of Mandy troughout, but I can't say the same about most of the time in the house, the killings and, specially, the pointless appearances of the guard. Besides, Mandy is not sufficiently atractive or desirable to justify all the boys loving her. I just didn't buy it.
Film #2 in my 2016 Hoop-tober (3.0) list
This movie is amazing.
It amazes me how one movie can manage be so utterly incompetent, so bland, so devoid of suspense, charm, or even unintentional humour, with characters that, despite being utter twats, are not even interesting enough to inspire any feeling other than mild irritation, so flat that it makes Mandy Lane a non-entity despite being the titular character who is played by a normally charismatic actress.
I only paid £3 for the brand new blu-ray and I still feel ripped off.
Personal extra #2
Hmmm... Interesting. Very different from what I expected. The concept is great, and its criticism towards teenage culture - specially the objectifying of popular girls - is very neat, sarcastic, painfully real and it takes the characters to some dark directions. At some point I thought the plot was going to take a predictable turn towards some obvious plot twist, but then it didn't try to hide the obvious and ended up surprising me at the end. Most of the characters are there to mirror teenage culture; unlike most teen horror films where the kids are just bland characters with the sole point of…
If you love films like "I Know What You Did Last Summer" then you might love Mandy Lane. Otherwise, don't bother.
Comparing this to watching paint dry while occassionally Googling hot images of Amber Heard would be an unjust insult to decorating and search engines. Though the intriguing ending does its best at a salvage job, the boring crapfest that preceded it killed any chance of me ever revisiting Mandy Lane to reevaluate it.
