Walk of Shame Review

I was talking to a friend of mine about this movie and she said that guys tend to have it easy because for guys it’s a walk of pride and not a walk of shame. I suppose to some extend it’s like that and it’s sad really.

The Plot

The outrageous comedy WALK OF SHAME stars Elizabeth Banks (The Hunger Games, Pitch Perfect) as a resourceful reporter whose one-night stand with a handsome stranger (James Marsden of Anchorman 2) leaves her stranded the next morning in downtown Los Angeles without a phone, car, ID, or money – and only 8 hours before the most important job interview of her career.

The Verdict

I like the cast of this movie, Elizabeth Banks and James Marsden both very likeable people on screen. I have to say though, you might need to leave your brains at the door for this one because nothing of it makes sense during her “walk of shame”. It’s like the ultimate nightmare scenario which is really extreme though who’s to say it’s not possible.

If you can get past that lack of realism then you’re gonna enjoy the film. Lots of light hearted laughs and it helps that Banks is quite charming as well. You can’t help but feel for her in her ultimate nightmare scenario.

At the end of the day, like all walk of shames, the most realistic thing about the film is that if you’re gonna blame anyone for the mess you got stuck in, it’s your friends. Because you wanted to stay at home in the first place!

Rating: 3 out of 5 stars

While this is very much a chick flick, it does have a good takeaway as it shows the persistent humiliation required just to get noticed in Hollywood or showbiz for that matter.
