All the Boys Love Mandy Lane
Everyone is dying to be with her. Someone is killing for it.
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 reportedly contains 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…
I watched this mainly to understand why Mr Depp had fallen so hard. And yes, I don't blame him - Amber Heard is quite a gorgeous creature indeed. Unfortunately, that's about all this movie has going for it. I appreciated the attempt to make the story more interesting with a twist and some small "moments" here and there that make you do a double take, but sadly, it all fell short, mainly due to an underdeveloped cast and no real emotional investment whatsoever in any of the leads.
This movie is far from bad but it's not very good either. It's such a shame because there was alot of potential.
An unbearable slasher film with a really dumb twist ending(which is all done to avenge an accidental death at a party) that is gratifyingly stupid beyond belief. It's no wonder why it took several years for this film to get its DVD/Blu Ray release after Amber Heard became a bigger name star.
SAW: in the Concierge Office
Tries to be a little more clever than it sadly is, even the twist towards the end doesn't amount to as good a payoff as you'd hope. An the major problem is, besides the farm hand guy every other character is an unlikable Jerk so you care very little for them when people start dying because you are glad to see it happen.
"Bird: You know we are all trying to get you right?
Mandy Lane: Get me?
Bird: Get with you. Here's the deal, I'm not like the other guys."
Prometia un buen entretenimiento de terror juvenil, con sangre y suspenso pero no da nada de eso. Cero terror, poca sangre y nulo suspenso (el giro de tuerca sorpresivo se nota a leguas), lo que mas me extraña es que la película parece tener un estatus de culto y realmente no se porque, supongo que por la atractiva presencia de Amber Heard.
Has all the ingredients of the typical Halloween/kill teens movie but not much more.
Dull, meandering, derivative, and frankly silly, All the Boys Love Mandy Lane takes a very tired cast of stereotypical characters and attempts to put an intelligent twist on them. The result is a horribly paced film with incredibly unlikable characters that leads to a very confusing and illogical ending.
"I can tell that we are going to be friends."
¿Y todo para qué?
I must confess, I wouldn’t be as much of a movie fan as I am now if it weren’t for…
Horror movies are by far my favorite, so I've decided to make a list with all of them I remember…
