'Nerve' is about an online dare game, in which people give participants anonymous dares for money. The participants compete with each other to win the grand prize as the dares get tougher. Things get worse when the tasks get increasingly dangerous and lives are at stake. Written by
When Vee enters the store to try on the dress the man in the shop says "its very expensive" - this line is a nod back to Julia Roberts interaction in Pretty Woman(1990). Julia Roberts is Emma's aunt. See more »
Throughout the whole movie, Vee and others continuously touch the screen of their MacBooks as if they are touchscreen. This isn't necessarily a goof; It can be counted as artistic license, with the directors choosing to show it this way to fit in with the look of the film. See more »

Nerve is about an unadventurous girl who decides to take part in an online game that involves completing challenges and dares to increase her popularity and add to her bank balance but as you would expect not everything goes to plan. Before I start to criticise this film too much it's true to say that I'm not the kind of person this is aimed at. What I mean is i'm probably 25 years too old to really enjoy something like this. It's incredibly dumb. The story is so far fetched and unrealistic that you just don't buy into what you are watching. It seams to be set in a neon lit world where everyone is 20 years old and where no internet connection is lost , nothing buffers and camera phones are conveniently aimed on every scene but the biggest problem with this is that it's not gritty enough. I wanted see a game like Jigsaw would play in the Saw film but instead we see a tepid watered down version and that just bored me. Unless you 18 years old give this a miss. The best thing about Nerve is the soundtrack .
