Dare DVD Review

Dare DVD Review

You can own this DVD today


Synopsis: Emmy Rossum (The Phantom of the Opera), Zach Gilford (TV's Friday Night Lights) and Ashley Springer (Teeth) head up a stellar cast including Ana Gasteyer (Mean Girls), Rooney Mara (A Nightmare on Elm Street), comedienne Sandra Bernhard (TV's Roseanne) and Alan Cumming (X2: X-Men United) in this captivating story of high school seniors at the crossroads of their adult lives. When a pompous actor tells good girl Alexa (Rossum) that she hasn't lived, she embarks on a bold journey that takes her to mysterious bad boy Johnny (Gilford). Envious, her shy best friend Ben (Springer) also dares to pursue Johnny, complicating Alexa's romance and pushing the boundaries among the three friends.

Review: The world is falling apart around you.  This "teen" film is causing a rift in the fabric of reality.  Ok, that may be a bit dramatic, but I was taken aback by how different 'Dare' is in the teen genre.  We usually get the archetypes in teen movies..the jock, the cheerleader, the nerd etc....I'm sorry, but if anyone reading this has lived real life there is a LOT more gray area than all that.

Dare goes where..well, no other teen movie would Dare.  Firstly, it case Alan Cummings, which is always a smart move in our book .  We love Alan.  He's always delightfully sinful and twisted, even when he's not trying to be.  The film is the debut for director Adam Salky and he does a great job.  This is a great DVD for anyone that wants to see a teen movie the way it should be!

Rating: 4 out of 5 Stars
