It wasn't that bad guys..

A motivational book written by a mysterious man quickly gains popularity, inspiring a group of people that includes a journalist, his editor, a former inmate, a hip-hop mogul, an actor and an undercover cop to re-evaluate their choices and decisions by confronting their fears in hopes of creating more positive lives. Reach Me (2014) is more of a Dramedy with an all star cast that get together in the end thanks to a book called Reach Me i've seen the film 2 times or 3 so far and i really don't get the hate for it it has some dumb humor and characters for example Tom Sizemore as Frank, Rebekah Chaney as Denise-Denise and Christoph M. Ohrt as Tommy there's 2 good cameos by Frank Stallone and Scarlet Rose Stallone and some others that were for a paycheck like Danny Trejo and Kelsey Grammar the people who did a great job tho besides Sylvester Stallone and Thomas Jane were Terry Crews, Lauren Cohan, Kyra Sedgwick, Tom Berenger, Danny Aiello and Elizabeth Henstridge. Guys in the end Reach Me has all the right intentions and it wants to send a happy message unfortunately some characters, actors and the script itself isn't as strong as it should or could be but i really enjoy it with and without it's flaws.

Reaching Rock Bottom

'Reach Me' exemplifies all the potential pitfalls of a vanity project. Financed by crowd-funding, if this mess of a film is the consequence of writer/director Herzfeld having full control of a project, it validates the existence of powerful producers, studio suits and cautious bean-counters. Ostensibly the story relates how an inspirational self-help book by a reclusive author affects the lives of a disparate collection of individuals. Unfortunately most of these characters share personality traits which come under the heading of annoying and tiresome. It all adds up to a seemingly endless sequence of overblown scenes where the actors behave in an imbecilic manner and shout at one another.

The platitudes of the fictional book and the embarrassing final product reek of complacent self-indulgence and the abandonment of critical faculties. Only dope-addled stoners could perceive any coherence in the muddled plot - and hopefully the dismissive critical reception and brutal rejection by the public has been a sobering experience for those who conceived the idea, donated their hard-earned cash or allowed themselves to be flattered into participating.

So Much Talent, So Little Return

Reach Me on the surface would seem like a humorous romp about self-improvement and the surreptitious intersection of a diverse set of people all needing some. After viewing it one gets the feeling it was just a group of well-known journeymen having a bit of a paid vacation.

This movie is fluff from the start. Reach Me segues between the different characters capriciously, never really finding a footing for the story it attempts to weave. The seriousness of everyone's need to take control of their life is made into a bit of a joke so much that there's nothing to invest in, let alone anything resembling real change for the good which, one is to believe, is the point.

The fact this movie was funded by people buying into a Kickstarter Campaign is the real story of certain parties self-help, sadly not for a worthy outcome. The performances, save for Connolly and Berenger which are marginally better, are, to coin a phrase "phoned-in". The weak script and "on-vacation" performances just don't make for anything with any substance. Pleasant enough to wade through, but empty in the end underscores the burning questions: why was this made...and, why did I keep watching?
