English Film review
Johnson Thomas

Boring, Unoriginal


Film: Two Night Stand
Cast: Miles Teller, Analeigh Tipton, Jessica Szohr, Scott "Kid Cudi" Mescudi, Leven Rambin
Director: Max Nichols



Rating: * *


Running Time: 86 min.


Synopsis:
When a blizzard blows through Manhattan, two strangers (Miles Teller and Analeigh Tipton) get snowed in together following a one night stand that they both regret.

Review
Miles Teller and Analeigh Tipton star in the debut feature from director Max Nichols (Mike's son), about a couple snowbound after a one-night stand. It’s not a new idea by any standards and especially since his father Mike Nichols postulated similar incidents in the Al Pacino-Michelle Pfeiffer starrer Frankie and Johnny.  Even the 1969 romance starring Dustin Hoffman and Mia Farrow had a similar premise. Max though has modernized the story a bit using the mechanics of the times to get the two lovers together for the first time. It’s a internet hook-up which brings them together for their one-night stand and then they get snow-bound for the second coming.


Mark Hammer making his debut as screenwriter creates some sharp moments only to fritter them away with trite and tired plotting. Max , in his directorial debut can neither enliven nor engage with his narration. There’s really nothing very unique about this offering.

Basically a flimsy plot line with a lot of interim dialogue to save face. Some of it is interesting but the rest is plain dead-boring. The characters have a dim view of life (considering their ages) and insights on human behavior and sex are so flaky and immature, they sound laughable. When certain truths waylay the final act, everything before it appears to have been a castle built on sand. The characters are basically stereotypes –not live enough to make you want to get to know nor feel for them. The actors try their best to be likeable but there’s only so much they can do when all else seems intractable!
