What the F*@k is this movie about?
This film is about the influence of social media and online dating on today's younger generation. In this film a young man named Noah is dumped by his girlfriend for a guy she met online. Depressed and unmotivated, he is coaxed by his pals Will and Eugene into trying online dating--using the same site his ex-girlfriend dumped him on.
Why is this important?
With the instant gratification-minded generation of today combining social media and online dating, trouble surely ensues. While many films today focus on how young people obsess over social media (ex. The Social Network), they have yet to focus on the utilization of online dating. In today’s technologically advanced world, young people have access to vast amounts of personal information through social media. Can relationships be built ONLY through the internet or do people lose sight of what’s real during the process? This dilemma is the key component in this relevant yet outrageous comedy about young people trying to find love (and lust) using the internet.
Why this movie should be made
This film should be made because it provides insight on how serious young people can be about trying to form relationships online. When in reality, these relationships should be created organically and from face-to-face interactions.
In this film, the protagonist, Noah, loses sight of the real picture that he’s still young and has time to find "the one". An online dating site shouldn't be the end-all-be-all.
