Holy 27-year-old high school students and indie rock, Batman, it’s the trailer for Dare! What’s Dare, you ask? Why, it’s a movie that premiered at Sundance last year, opens nationwide in November, and appears to be The OC with ugly people. It also stars an actress whose first name is “Rooney.” Huh, I wonder if she went to private school.
When a pompous actor tells good girl Alexa (Emmy Rossum) that she hasn’t lived, she embarks on a bold journey that takes her to mysterious bad boy Johnny (Zach Gilford). Envious, her shy best friend Ben (Ashley Springer) also dares to pursue Johnny, complicating Alexa’s romance and pushing the boundaries among the three friends. [Apple]
Jesus, these peoples’ lives are more boring than mine. Also, movie cliché: Naming the bad boy “Johnny.” If a guy’s named Johnny in a movie, you can pretty much guarantee he’s bad, because hardly any real people are actually named Johnny anymore. It’s a shame, because “Put him in a bodybag, Zach!” just doesn’t have the same ring to it.
