Buffaloed – Comedy
Category – Movie
Content – Peg has grown up her whole life trying to make money and find the next hustle. After she spends time in jail for ticket sales fraud, she gets out and is presented with debt collecting. A presumably legal job, she jumps in head first. Since she has grown up with the art of hustle, debt collecting is an easy sales position for her. Until, she decides that she can make more money on her own and buy the paper out from underneath her prior boss. This creates tension among all the players and an all out war begins! The comedy in this film is ok, to me it could have been better. There were definitely moments where I thought the audience should be busting out laughing, but alas it fell short. In all, just another cute movie about the art of the hustle.This scores a 5 out of 10.
Acting – Peg is played by Zoey Deutch, daughter of Lea Thompson. I think she is coming into her own as an actress, but still has a way to go. She was cute and fun to watch, and will be someone to keep your eye on in future projects. And of course Judy Greer is playing her mother. You cannot have a comedy these days without Judy, she is great! And Jai Courtney plays the heavy debt collector boss, not a stretch for him. These are the roles he has been cast to play. All together, they did a good job.Score is 6 out of 10.
Duration – 1 hr 35 min. Comedies are good at this duration. Its not too long and not too short. There was nothing more this movie needed. This gets a 7 out of 10.
