    Everybody’s doing it!

    So the new thing for seasoned horror directors is to make their first
    non horror film, sometimes with elements of horror, but ultimately a
    different genre. Ti west with ”In a valley of violence, Christopher
    Smith with ”Detour”, now Eric England with ”Get the girl”, and there
    are many more examples I cant think of off the top of my head
    immedietely. Eric England’s ”Get the girl” is upbeat, hip, somewhat
    exciting, and pretty fast paced. This movie is done by a director who
    has only done horror films up to this point and although he is young
    Eric England is still seasoned in the genre. Madison County had corny
    and ugly characters but was overall a good horror movie. Contracted was
    also a good horror movie. It is a body horror film with some good
    creepy factors to it. It gives a nice nod to independent horror as it
    stars talented screenwriter Simon Barret as the mysterious man,
    Caroline Williams as the worried mother, Matt Mercer who England also
    used in his first film ”Madison County” and went on to become a staple
    in independent horror. ”Roadside”, England’s second to newest film, was
    pretty crappy and uneventful. It was a mix of a very boring
    thriller/mystery/horror. Now, England comes out with this narrative
    engaging thriller, ”Get the girl”. The only problem is tho, that there
    are a lot of problems with this film, as it seems as if the director
    wanted to upgrade his filming quality and style but he kinda just did
    it with out really doing his homework on it. It seems like an amateur
    director tried to make a big budget feeling film, but failed kinda
    miserably. The lead character is boring and extremely generic. He is
    not attractive, he is childish, his intro background story was
    seriously lacking any real background info about him which keeps the
    audience from ever really feeling for this guy or relating with him and
    immedietely makes us think he is shady by not telling us more of his
    background. Its like he was hiding something from us and we knew this
    within the first 5 or 10 minutes of the movie. The girl is also very
    boring and not very attractive at all. The movie is overall confusing
    and the only redeeming quality, in my opinion, is the presence of Noah
    Segan. He brings a certain menace to any movie he stars in. This movie
    seemed childish and immature. It is like a step backwards for Eric
    England, as there is no real emotional or mental pull to this film. It
    is barely comendable and very forgettable. The biggest problem in this
    film is the editing. The film editing sucks. There are several shots
    where a character is standing there making a certain face, or even
    pointing a gun at someone, and then in the immediate next shot, the
    character is suddenly turned around looking out the window. There was
    no transfer in actions. It was weird to see the focus of the shot
    operating and moving smoothly and accurately, while the background
    character was pointing a gun and shifted to walking up the stairs in
    the blink of an eye. Terrible editing for an overused and tiring plot.
    You would think Eric England had more ”oomph” in him. I am not
    impressed at all. I follow horror directors and their work and I was
    excited to hear about this film but once I saw it, I felt embarrassed
    for the director. Maybe he will redeem himself with his upcoming four
    films lol. I guess the lesson here is don’t bite off more than you can
    chew and always do your homework. Gave it a 5 cuz its a good teeny
    bopper movie for toolish and foolish kids, and cuz i feel a little bad
    for England who made a movie to throw up to for all the wrong reasons.

    Get the Girl is a decent crime comedy with good performances and few hilarious scenes.

    Get the Girl (2017): Crime Comedies can only work if it has great humor
    despite of violent situations.Be it a murder or a heist or a kidnap,all
    the crime comedies only goal is to give an ample dose of humor.Get the
    Girl is one such crime comedy released this year on net and let us see
    how it is..

    Plot:

    A wealthy young man Clarence (Justin Dobies) is conned into staging a
    fake kidnapping with the help of Patrick (Noah Segan) in order to be a
    hero and win the affection of a girl he’s madly in love with Alex
    (Elizabeth Whitson). But when one of the hired kidnappers is
    accidentally killed during the charade, he’s forced to actually save
    her life while not revealing that it’s been a ruse all along.

    Plus Points:

    1)Comedy: Get the Girl has some good comedy which really helped the
    movie.Even with so much gore and blood,it never seems disturbing only
    because of the comedy provided at uneven situations.There are good LOL
    moments in this movie.

    2)Performances: Elizabeth Whitson as Alex is very good in her
    role.Justin and Noah Segan are awesome and formed a good duo.

    3)Twist at the Pre-Climax: Not the Climax one..Not at all !! The twist
    which shows up at pre-climax is so good and really is surprising.

    Minus Points:

    1)Lame Climax: With a good twist at pre-climax,movie could have been
    better but they gave another lame twist at the end which spoiled the
    entire feel of the movie.Climax is so poor.

    So,Get the Girl is a decent crime comedy with good performances and few
    hilarious scenes,

    My rating 6/10

    Get the Girl Review

    There are so many movie’s today that rely heavily on a gimmick to
    impress – As an audience we want something new, and from time to time
    we’ll gladly take something old as long as it inventive in some form.
    With Director Eric England’s (Contracted) ”Get the Girl”, we may not
    get anything new – but we do get a fun paced thriller packed with
    twists you might see coming and characters that even Tarantino himself
    might take a nod.

    ”Get the Girl” starts with a simple premise – A wealthy young man
    (Justin Dobies) falls in love with a girl (Elizabeth Whitson). Love at
    first sight, allegedly. Only thing is – she doesn’t know he exist,
    despite the fact that he comes each night during her shift – Just to
    see her! He’s then manipulated by Patrick (Noah Segan) into a fake
    kidnapping in order to win her affection. Of course things go horribly
    wrong all around the board.

    Eric England crafts a fun story with a few thrills and perhaps a few
    unseen twists and turns along the way to keep you busy. Our proposed
    hero – Clarence is rather dull and timid, with constant voice overs
    that remind you of Jessie Eisenberg’s ”Zombieland”. The real hero of
    this story and perhaps fun character to stay with throughout the 1h 27
    mark is Adi Shankar as KJ – Adi Shankar is hilariously brilliant in
    every scene he’s in, you’ll probably wish he had more to do though.
    Noah Segan (Looper) is also very good.

    Overall this is a movie worth watching, despite a formula you’ve
    probably seen one to many times before.
