The Good Girl

So last night I watched The Good Girl with Jennifer Aniston. As soon as I sat down and got to the DVD menu I realized I had already seen it, and that it had left a bad taste in my mouth, but decided to watch it anyway, just to see why.

It’s an independent film, so the transitions are weird, and it has a stale-lack-of-soundtrack feel to it, which works in this case. The movie focuses on this one woman who hates her life, because it is so bland. She meets a guy, a boy really, who gives her a chance to escape and in turn she’d be helping him escape the same plight. But she chickens out and people all around her get hurt because she’s unwilling to own up to her actions and insecurities.

And then it ends. That’s it. “People can’t change”, says the film writer. I get it, but I hate it.
