The Art Of Getting By…
Let me say here that these guys, oh I am talking about director Gavin Wiesen did try to make a good movie with the usual story where the guy is irresponsible then the girl walks in, she helps, they heal, its love and they live happily ever after.
But they ruined this movie big time.
Emma Roberts (Sally) is a great actress but totally used upin this one and although I am not much content about the acting of Freddie Highmore (George) but his character was itself lousy and shabby guy so it complimented.
As far as the story, you will feel like killing yourself with the snail speed of the movie. Frankly this movie could get over within 30 minutess but they dragged it too bad.
Had they stuck to the original concept where George realizes the other facts of life other than death, the movie would have come out great. But love triangles and blah blah blah stuff killed the movie.
No emotions or feeling in the characters and silly comedy that made no sense…
So George is a senior year teen boy who is too focused about the realities of life specially that death is everyone’s destiny. He doesn’t care about his education and never does any assignment.
He meets Sally who is a popular gorgeous girl in the same school and starts liking her but unwilling to admit. Sally soon hooks up with another guy by the time George realizes his feelings.
As the year comes to an end, George must complete his entire year assignments in order to graduate.
Thats pretty much the story. Here is a Trailer Of The Art Of Getting By Movie 2011.
