Mini's First Time Reviews

October 13, 2006
It doesn't help that first-time screenwriter/director Nick Guthe created such a superficial group of characters. Few, if any, seem believable or are interesting enough to care about.

The characters in Mini are played by fine performers (Alec Baldwin, Jeff Goldblum, Carrie-Anne Moss), but they're still one-note.

Touches fleetingly on an interesting phenomenon - namely, the manner in which a father's advances simultaneously disgust and enthrall his teenage stepdaughter.

Mini's First Time is delectably vulgar for 20 minutes or so, almost too bad to be true, but it soon loses its cheap-thrills appeal.

Mini's First Time is not about taking an honest look at adolescence. It's not even really about teens, or high-school life, or upper-class marriages. What it's about is an unpleasantly pervy adult male view of teenage girls.

The swirl of bad girl shenanigans, Hollywood satire and noir-ish melodrama in Mini's First Time that was intended to make for an icy cocktail of prurience and moral insight tastes more like freezer burn instead.

It's a bad, preposterous and horrifyingly cliched black comedy about a girl gone wicked.

Guthe is so anxious to show us what a larcenous tramp Mini is that he never shows us any other sides to her. We have her pegged from the get-go, even if no one in the movie does.

a bloated waste of time and money... an unequivocal low.

Mini is too tame for Skina-max and too inane to survive on the art-house circuit. It's a pretentious erotic thriller that gives honest trash a bad name.

Mini is impossible to like, especially since she delivers some of the worst narration ever spoken, and her final lines are like a big middle finger to viewers foolish enough to enjoy the film.

A cheeky neo-noir that updates Double Indemnity for the high school set, Mini's First Time trades in black humor so dim you'd need a flashlight to find it.

Mini's First Time unfortunately degenerates into a sexed-up version of a Law & Order episode.
