2005 / 104m - USA
Pretty Persuasion poster


March 07, 2023


One of those films I didn't really expect to like the second time around, but lo and behold. Pretty Persuasion is a film that has lost little of its original appeal, on the contrary. The crude and head-first assault on the human facade is refreshing in this day and age, springing a lot of politically incorrect humor on its audience, but always with enough wit and edge to rise above its inherent crudeness. A superb lead, unrelenting comedy, and a finale that turns the table on the audience one last time make this a film with strong rewatch potential. This is a solid recommendation for people who want a US high school movie with a bit more bite.
