If there is a real problem with this movie, it's that there is no modulation. Spurned by his family, he longs to do something positive in his life, but his conviction holds him back. The movie ends with Cami and Kendra having a fun party and Tori slicing cake with one arm in a sling. Although Cami believes Jake's a 23 year-old college student, everything he's told her online is a lie. Cor gets out on probation, he hooks up with his pretty computer date, but doesn't tell her about his arresting past.
Crime Mystery Thriller Romance When teenager Cami Winters falls in love, she falls hard. Tracking down a streaming service to buy, rent, download, or watch the Curtis Crawford-directed movie via subscription can be a huge pain, so we here at Moviefone want to do right by you. He's edgy and easily angered, not unlike my ex-boyfriend--eerie. I kind of wanted to see the movie ending with her taking a self defense class. Obviously, if you daughter meets someone online, he is a criminal and you will get you shot. Every time they have more then 5 minutes on screen together, Jake manages to either yell at his girlfriend for being a naive child or share some kind of horrific story about his life.
However, all of the interactions between Cami and Jake creeped me out. Yet at the same time, the humanity of Jack Byers' shines through in confused and unexpected ways. It was also overwrought and cheesy in the best ways. This is a good story with a few surprises, not the typical twist, but genuine realistic moments that bring this script to a different kind of conclusion, making this film memorable. Cami's life turns upside down when she discovers who he really is. Her single mother, Tori, has no idea that Cami has fallen in love with a boy named 'Jake' she met on a social networking website.
Being utterly out of options, he makes the classic decision of the mid-twenties slacker and decides to channel his energies into a highly dramatic relationship with a hot moron that is doomed to fail. Lighting, music, whiny teenage angst, every scene is at the same level. Printoffs of dating profiles from a website that sounds like an email service for seniors? She tries everything- yelling, whining, yelling and whining, sulking -with no luck. As always, Lifetime has their thumb on the pulse of teenupsmanship. The best thing in this movie is Jon Cor's performance as Jake Byers. The real sad part of this story is that Jake isn't totally an indecent human being.
Here I was strongly tempted to reverse the sequence. The evil guy dies, somehow. Despite all that, they still hit it off and manage a shmoopy moment, followed up with the promise of further shmoopiness. Tags: , What ho, true believers! The really uncomfortable thing about it is that these guys cry a lot. Im going to be honest, I just zoned the fuck out whenever they talked to each other unless one of them started crying. And the score is intrusive, overwrought and annoying.
While the ending shows that the two still live in two separate worlds, we see there is still hope that Jake can be rehabilitated. Jake goes back to jail, and Cami and Tori bond over the whole mess. For my bi-annual contribution to the blog, I chose to confront a primal horror of mothers everywhere: the internet. Yet, she's not just a lovesick fool, she's smart and intolerant of things that start to emerge in Jake's life. So there is not much special there, aside from the fact that the cute boy is not a fifty year old pedophile hunting down underage girls which is how I expected this plot to unfold. Jake was in Saw 3D, so the jury is out on whether this score will be increased when I watch that shit at the dollar theater. Obviously, when you are dating someone online, you print their profile off and carry it with you like a lock of hair from your civil war beau.
Although Cami believes Jake's a 23 year-old college student, everything he's told her online is a lie. She thinks handsome Jon Cor as Jake Meyers is a college athlete, but he's really in prison. Now, before we get into the fundamentals of how you can watch 'The Boy She Met Online' right now, here are some particulars about the Zed Filmworks thriller flick. The dialogue may be realistic, but it is not interesting to listen to teenagers giggle. That I am aware of. She loves him and near tragedy ensues.
They agree to meet up at a local coffeeshop, and off we go on a whirlwind of romance! Mama Paul and gal-pal Thea Grill as Kendra Oliver like to sit on tables and show off their legs. Her single mother, Tori, has no idea that Cami has fallen in love with a boy named 'Jake' she met on a social networking website. Unfortunately, while the idea is interesting, this movie is not. He moves enough dope to buy a fancy suit and asks his girl if they can finally meet face-to-face. And, she doesn't tell him she's seventeen. The Jack Byers character is much deeper than one would think from a small budget film like this.
