Dialogue
Colby Stewart plays an arrogant extrovert who would do anything for a click. Then, there’s Brandi Aguilar, her snowflake friend, who complains too much and somehow needs to pray before bed. The dialogue is witty and makes the exposition delightful. The end result is beyond what you would expect from a low budget film. Way beyond! Politics are the only thing that brings this movie down.
I loved these hilarious off-tangent bits that do not contribute to the plot and make you giggle. These fake Pop-Tarts commercials and campy dream sequences sure are amusing. Those are the symptoms of confident screenwriting. When you know you can sidestep an engaging story by introducing a pointless element, only to dive back into the main arc seamlessly, you’ve proven you know your shit.
Clickbait is at time reminiscent of Troma films, but with polish. The absurd humor intensifies every minute. This film could’ve turned into a slasher on many occasions, but purposely resisted. It just didn’t want to be shoe horned. It’s not perfect, but inconsistency is its greatest strength. It’s unpredictable, it’s well-paced, it’s never tedious, and it’s a film of its time.
