Though this film isn’t all that bad, it’s only mildly entertaining. I am surprised that Netflix has given this film any airtime at all, as being tall is not the biggest issue I’ve heard of these days.
The contrast between the sisters couldn’t be bigger indeed: tall sister versus beauty queen and thank goodness their mother treats them differently in that aspect, but still.
I am a tall girl (not as tall as she is, but there’s only a mild inch between her tallness and an inch or two in shoesizes), and I’ve actually never had to endure any of the silly comments this girl gets.
I do recall a boy coming at me, trying to playfully intimidate me, then I stood up, with the same amount of playfulness, and he was smiling as I was far taller than he had initially assumed.
The part where her sworn enemy Kimmy plays a trick on the phone should have been taken seriously and not a way to blame herself. Kimmy is an utterly vile bitch who deserved a slap in the face. Verbally or nonverbally. A best friend who doesn’t see that, I don’t trust.
A best friend who tries to actively stop a romance between his friend and an exchange student should have punched himself in the guts aswell.
The tall girl herself accepts her faith as any Jane Austen heroine does, but in current times, this shouldn’t be needed.
I can’t say I would recommend this film as it barely has any reality on show about how these things go. Even the cast isn’t as mixed as you’d expect in this time and era….
