EVERY DAY REVIEWED
“Every Day” is a complicated Young Adult lit adaptation about a young girl sampling her future loves. This is accomplished by a traveling spirit that negates the weirdness of the source novel by downplaying his origins. Taking a cue from faint spiritual cinematic offerings, Every Day is a film about a young woman getting the ultimate fan-fic card to sample local guys. Seriously, this is a Tina Belcher movie through the lens of a restrained Christian-type girl. Yet, the film remains scared to evoke religion that often.
The film manages to check off the heavy teen issues of acknowledging that LGBTQ and other types of people exist in the world. But, the cosmic space baby spirit finds a way to point her to the cute boy that nobody understands. While the film ends and begins predictably, it spins its wheels for an hour into crazy town. The teen actors are pretty strong, but the script gives them nothing. In reality, any teenager getting a chance to make it with a Hive Mind would play closer to that Rick and Morty episode with Christina Hendricks. Check it out soon before it leaves.
