There is a good movie or story somewhere in here, but unfortunately it is not completely fleshed out. July mixes us up in far too many characters to get a decent grasp on any of them, therefore not letting us get close enough to really care.

The film does provide some laughs and raises an eyebrow or two while watching, but you don't walk away with anything more than notions of how the movie could have been improved. A fair attempt, but misses the bulls-eye. Expand

It was enjoyable to watch; a lot of pretty images. But it doesn't add up to a movie. I can't believe all the 10's/100's. I really doubt people's/reviewers' credibility now. 10? 100? This movie is as good as it It was enjoyable to watch; a lot of pretty images. But it doesn't add up to a movie. I can't believe all the 10's/100's. I really doubt people's/reviewers' credibility now. 10? 100? This movie is as good as it gets? This is as good as The Godfather and Gone With The Wind? Even Ebert gave it four stars. Now I have to doubt even him. A 10 or 100 means the best of the best. This movie -- enjoyable as it is -- is FAR from that. The words "masterpiece" and "masterwork" are thrown around so carelessly now. Incidentally, I agree that most of the risque child/teen sex-related material was unnecessary and served no dramatic purpose. An enjoyable Expand

Is it child pornography when you have kids talking about lewd and pornographic acts? I'm not sure, but it happens in this movie and it left me very queasy.

I like Indie movies but this past few years I learned that the Indie Trademark created by Sundance and the Cannes "Un Certain Regard" has lost its quality features. This film follows a recent trend of over analyzing everything that happensI like Indie movies but this past few years I learned that the Indie Trademark created by Sundance and the Cannes "Un Certain Regard" has lost its quality features. This film follows a recent trend of over analyzing everything that happens today in a fast passed and always changing society. This way of thinking, for me, is just a waste of time. I prefer living over thinking about living. Expand
