.. in fact the dress deserves casting credit

I admit that there were parts where it was pretty funny, particularly when she was lost and trying to find her way back and by watching the trailer, it does look really promising and really funny. However having watched the film, there were parts that felt really standard and monotone at times. And just pretty predictable. Plus, it was also quite cringe-worthy, maybe it was just me but I felt that a lot of the scenes were pretty cheesy.

I understand that it's hard to come up with completely unpredictable plots, but I feel that the story cut too much from here to there. Like one event would end, then it would die down for awhile, then pick back up again. Maybe it was that movement of events, moving from funny to calm and then repeating again and again, that I disliked.

However, I do love Elizabeth Banks as an actress. She really makes her character come to life and I feel that the supporting cast was barely needed. Well obviously they were needed, and they did add some comedic effect to the film, but it was mainly Banks who did a fantastic job. And as much as I love James Marsden, his character was so shallow and useless that I kind of dislike him in this. OK, I get that he was needed to be that one night stand guy, but it was just so…eye roll worthy when they got together.

And then there's the ending. No offense to anyone (seriously) but I've noticed this kind of Western mentality where they believe that it is their right to not have anything bad happen to them. It just feels like complaining to me, when at the end she goes on about what happened that day and how she's not ashamed. Like OK, whatever. Maybe I'm too heartless, but I felt that the ending made the movie a lot less enjoyable as a whole.

A generic storyline and a wasted cast

The fact that the trailer which shows the most entertaining moments can perhaps be considered the film's strongest asset speaks volumes, as Walk of Shame comes across as a failed comedy with a tedious and overfamiliar storyline, one that focuses on a series of mishaps endured by an anchorwoman portrayed Elizabeth Banks. Although amusing at times, offering some funny and quotable lines, the film relies too heavily on its lead actress, as Banks' charm and appeal is what ultimately keeps the audience engaged. Sadly it is a typical and highly generic story told in a non-refreshing way, which hurts the comedic potential of the talented cast that was at the film's disposal. Along with the fact that it unnecessarily relies on an abundance of comedic stereotypes, Walk of Shame fails to produce any real excitement, and can be regarded as nothing more than an unfunny, mediocre and extremely formulaic comedy.

Surprisingly Good

With the slew of "get drunk, end up in bad situation" movies that have flooded the industry, it was hard to get excited for this movie. I enjoy Elizabeth Banks and the trailers did seem funny. I just couldn't help but have that feeling of "been there done that". And that feeling is valid but it doesn't mean that the movie was bad, in fact, I quite enjoyed it.

The plot plays out like any number of movies in the genre. Main character gets drunk, wakes up in a bad situation and has to try and retrace their steps to get from point A to point B (point B often being supremely important). While the plot was predictable, it's what happens between point A and point B that matters.

Despite the number of movies similar, the director was still able to find some uniquely funny scenes to put Banks' character in. Some scenes that come to mind are an impound lot and a crack house. While not all scenes hit the mark, there was enough here to be worth a viewing. I also found the running gag about Banks' characters profession to be extremely funny.

So what make this seemingly mediocre film worth viewing? Two things in my opinion. Firstly, this is the first movie of this type where I actually felt for the character. I wanted her to get where she wanted to go and that kept me involved in the movie. Secondly, I appreciate the fact that we can have a movie like this without relying on extremely rude and crude scenes. Yes, there is profanity and some implied sex but in comparison to other films with similar plots (Hangover), this movie is tame. But that doesn't mean it's not funny as I feel it is able to remain funny throughout.

If you into movies like the Hangover, Hot Tub Time Machine, or Bridesmaids, then this is a must watch. If you love comedies then this is also a good bet. It may not end p being a movie you need to own but you can do much much worse than giving this movie a shot.
