Netflix has recently been putting out more original movies such as the Kissing Booth, and To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before. The latter, starring Noah Centineo and Lana Candor, was a huge hit that left everyone wanting to see more from up and coming star Noah Centineo.
Centineo had another Netflix movie come out on September 7th called Sierra Burgess is a Loser. This movie centered around a insecure teenage girl named Sierra Burgess who ends up getting a text from a random number.
This text turns out to be from the quarterback of a neighboring high school, Jamey. However, he is under the impression that he is texting the head cheerleader of Sierra’s school. As They begin texting, it is clear they have a connection.
When it becomes evident that Sierra can not go any longer without interacting with Jamey in person, she enlists the help of head cheerleader, Veronica.
Veronica helps Sierra to trick Jamey by sending him pictures of her and even staging a FaceTime call.
Another problem people are having with this movie is one scene where Veronica and Sierra arrange for Sierra to kiss Jamey without him knowing.
This is a very interesting movie that touches on a variety of topics including catfishing, insecurities, and being yourself.
One of the best parts of this movie is that they don’t villainize Veronica because she is the head cheerleader. There is more to her character than just being pretty.
Junior Riley Babineaux says, “I really liked Veronica’s character. I also liked the idea of the movie when I saw the trailer but the actual movie was really disappointing.”
Her relationship with Sierra is something that is not seen in a lot of movies. Instead of Veronica being the villain of this movie, she ends up actually being more of a hero than Sierra.
In my opinion, Sierra is the villain of this movie. Not only is she dishonest with a person she claims to care about, but she also ends up turning on someone who has done nothing but help her be a catfish.
After she makes everyone she cares about angry at her, she continues to play the victim, making it clear she believes she can get away with anything because she is self conscious.
Her “apology” to everyone is a song that is completely about her. It has nothing to do with the mistakes she made. It has everything to do with her own problems.
The overall concept of this movie is strong. It is unique and fresh. The movie’s execution of this theme, however, was lost and replaced with a confusing portrayal of a catfish looking for sympathy from everyone.
