#2 Movie Review: The Sweet Life

So here is my second movie review!, as before I will talk about the actual film synopsis, so you’ll know what the story is about….

Kenny Parker (Chris Messina) and Lolita Nowicki (Abigail Spencer), each struggling with their own brand of demons, meet by chance in Chicago and form a pact to travel across the country to the Golden Gate Bridge to commit suicide together.

The Cast (I will just point out the main characters of the movie, if you like to see the full cast just click here)

  • Chris Messina as Kenny Pantalio
  • Abigail Spencer as Lolita Nowicki
  • Karan Soni as Convenience Store Clerk
  • Tyson Ritter as Marlon
  • D. Evermore as Brandon

So here we go! My quick review be warned SPOILERS!…

Firstly  I must say both lead actors Chris Messina and Abigail Spencer showed natural charisma and vulnerability that’s right for the genre of a movie. There were some very comedic scenes such as the attempted robbery of the convenience store followed by the pickup off the hitchhikers (play off, of the fake gun from convenience store) the stolen a car with a kidney getting cops to help out and the therapy dance haha. But also had dramatic aspect when Kenny visited his ex whom left him at the alter and when Lalita went to see her mother…such touching moments. Both Rob Spera and Jared Rappaport deserve a lot of praise for bring such a movie to our screens where The Sweet Life” lives up to its title. Would definitely recommend this movie everyone

Overall I would give this a 4/5
