I was tired when I saw this last night, so maybe I feel like I started to space out a bit during Fandango.
The story really isn’t anything special, which isn’t new. A couple of college guys who head to Mexico in the 70’s after graduating college. One guy is avoiding marriage and then there is the whole potential draft dodging aspect. A nice lovely learning experience through a road trip. I didn’t really care for the characters either. They didn’t seem to really evolve or anything, even after some of these so-called “revelations.” Technically they change, but it seemed somewhat sudden, yet predictable.
I kinda expected more from the movie. It’s a good enough concept and was done well, but it just seemed lacking, like it needed a little bit more of a push to make it stand out more. Maybe watching it again will change my mind.
