More Irritating Than Enjoyable

This movie came across to me as quite the downer, and didn't seem at all to be a Rob Reiner directed film. Nick Robinson is believable as the defiant and sarcastic Charlie Mills. He's 18-years-old and a drug addict and has gone to one treatment facility after another, only gaining brief periods of sobriety.

Nick is from a very well-to-do family with his father (Cary Elwes), a former movie star running for Governor of California. The bulk of the film will center on Nick's rehab attempts, as he continually flaunts and disregards the recovery program's and counselors recommendations, thinking he has all the answers. Unfortunately, it will take a tragedy to finally get his attention.

There's lots of unlikable characters here, plenty of drug use, raw language, explicit sexual references, and some nudity.

Overall, I had trouble caring about the characters here, and just found the movie to be more irritating than enjoyable.

Being Charlie

Whats not to like....Real world for a change..No Fluff...See it when ya can....Aside from all the cast giving all believable under the top performances the writing does a good job of blending high funny ha ha and low tragedy ..Drug problems embedding themselves in all families comes close to home here...Reiner both the older and younger collaborate on a film level and more importantly as a dad and son as it gets very close to home ..We the audience are allowed to observe from afar at times ..In . The rehab facilities one gets to see life from the inside out rather than peering in as outsiders...The writing takes us there..All in all get your popcorn ready ur in for a film that u will remember awhile from now..

To be or not to be

And I wish Charlie 'not to be'. Oh, this flick is predictable and mostly boring! It has some good moments mostly within the first half hour but overall it's so been done before.

The opening of the story is certainly an attention grabber with Charlie leaving that 'Christian rehab center and smashing the stain glass window! Then being given a ride with a woman suffering cancer. Something surely of substance is going to unfold before us -- no not at all. Charlie calls a friend and the friend takes him home to Bel-Air to his very wealthy family. From this point on everything about this story is so predictable. Who couldn't figure out the father would put his political career first and the mother would be the go between for father and 'druggy' son? Of course there's the on again off again doped-up girl for Charlie, his friend Adam who accepts Charlie for what he is (and by-the-way Adam is the only character in the whole move with a personality), and Charlie is on the street then off the street then on the street.

The ultimate message here is that no one can change their life until they decide to do it themselves. This is symbolically shown when Charlie sweeps up the broken bottles at the beach house - his life at 18 years old is also a broken mess and it's time to clean it up. An hour and a half to get to the message everyone already knows. The end.
