Is this what you get when you mix Jarhead with Parks & Recreation? Overhyped, but still mostly fascinating. Most of the black humor worked, but still there were times when it got a little bit too silly and it made me wish this was a full-fledged drama. I really wanna see more of both the director Talya Lavie and the terrific leads Dana Ivgy and Nelly Tagar.
I don't know how this ended up playing here, but I'm not gonna look, pace the idiom, this particular gift horse in its mouth. Glad somebody is keeping the spirit of early Miloš Forman alive. Another one, of which there have been a great many lately, for fans of women. Women really are the best thing going.
Much better than I expected. Dana Ivgy is fabulous, although casting her as a virgin is bizarre. Yes, it is part chick-flick, part fuck-the-army dark comedy a la MASH, but it's also a buddy-film (are female buddy films still called "buddy films"?) . And it is also an ensemble film. Unique.
