Mila Kunis in a movie? That isn’t related to an animated comedy? As if that wasn’t exciting enough, Kunis spends most of the film wet and grungy in the South Pacific. The ever present evil-step parent, Kunis’ father-in-law, convinced her mother to send her to be “rehabilitated” along with dozens of other young adults deemed beyond control by their parents. It’s a little bit like Lord of the Flies with the addition of a European egomaniac and multiple stages of tee shirt colors. With Gregory Smith playing the hopeful and helpful boyfriend rescuer, the story is your standard damsel in distress saga, but certainly captivating enough to keep my attention all the way through. Not the best of films, but by no means the worst either. If you are browsing Netflix now…eh, you could stop on this one.

Welcome to Not Your Father’s Water Cooler!
You know those mind-numbing water cooler discussions about weather, pets and weekend activities? That soul-crushing small talk would be far less demoralizing if it included something you actually cared about.
Founded by two hoops addicts, NYFWC brings you the kind of water cooler chatter we dreamed of: a dialogue centered on hypothetical trades, basketball debates and of course, humor.
You'll also notice that from time to time we touch on other subjects. Whether it's films, music or pop culture, at NYFWC our goal is not merely to regurgitate information that is already flooding the tubes. Instead, we hope to provide thoughtful individual perspectives on the most important, interesting and entertaining topics of the day.
