A teenage girl with nothing to lose joins a traveling magazine sales crew, and gets caught up in a whirlwind of hard partying, law bending and young love as she criss-crosses the Midwest with a band of misfits.
Following the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy fights through grief and trauma to regain her faith, console her children, and define her husband's historic legacy.
The Fits is a psychological portrait of 11-year-old Toni-a tomboy assimilating to a tight-knit dance team in Cincinnati's West End. Enamored by the power and confidence of this strong community of girls, Toni eagerly absorbs routines, masters drills, and even pierces her own ears to fit in. When a mysterious outbreak of fainting spells plagues the team, Toni's desire for acceptance is twisted. Written by
I just don't get the reviews for this film. The acting was good if not great, but the story is just plain boring. Very little happens and what does is pretty unremarkable. I fell asleep about 3/4 of the way through the movie. My wife made it through the whole thing and was especially disappointed with the ending. Don't waste your time unless you're trying to get some sleep. OK, I have to add more lines to satisfy this site. That is so irritating and the reason I only add reviews for vastly underrated, and vastly overrated movies in my opinion. More lines needed. More lines needed. More lines needed. And yet more lines are needed. Unfortunately,even more lines are needed. Finally, enough lines!
