SIERRA BURGESS IS A LOSER is a modern Rom-com retelling of the Cyrano de Bergerac story set in high school. The story centers on Sierra (Shannon Purser), an intelligent teen who does not fall into the shallow definition of high school pretty but, in a case of mistaken identity that results in unexpected romance, must team with the popular girl (Kristine Froseth) in order to win her crush. Also starring RJ Cyler, Noah Centineo, Chrissy Metz, and Lea Thompson. (Via Rotten Tomatoes)
My Review: I watched this movie last night and I thought it was really good. It’s one of Netflix’s new romantic comedy movies. A lot of the scenes were cringe-worthy I even got second-hand awkwardness. The story/script is not perfect but it kept me intrigued all the way through. I did see a lot of negative reviews about this movie but, my personal opinion is that it is better than “The Kissing Booth” and “To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before” two other New Netflix teen romantic comedies that are overly hyped. This movie is actually very relatable and hits on the insecurities that many women go through and have. The cast was okay. I think the main character Sierra/Shannon Purser is extremely talented and carried the whole movie. Every movie is not perfect and it was definitely some quirks in this movie that should have been straightened out. But in hindsight, I highly recommend watching this movie because it was something I completely enjoyed.
