Riding the highs of high school, four friends bond over relationships, drugs, and living their best lives. DUDE stars Lucy Hale, Alex Wolff, Alexandra Shipp, Awkwafina, and Kathryn Prescott.
When I saw the trailer for this movie, I didn’t expect much from the movie. I thought it would be another movie about teenagers who like to party and smoke weed. But I gave it a chance. And yes those girls love to party a lot. But the movie is actually more than that. I don’t want to spoil anything, but this movie is more about how to deal with loss, going to college, leave your friends behind and finding out who they really are. The trailer does not show that at all. I think that is a good thing because most of the trailers these days spoil everything and are basically a summary of the full movie. On the other side, the trailer does not justify this movie at all. People might think that is a stupid movie about teens and drugs, just like me and will never watch this movie.
I would give the trailer 1 star probably, but the movie deserves three stars. It funny sometimes, it is sad and more about just drugs.
But I am wondering why they picked these girls for this movie? They look (and they are) too old to be in high school. I think they should have picked other young actresses. And why is the movie called dude? Is it about four girls? Wrong name, wrong actresses.
