Straight off the bat, Dirty 30 is an above average film that will at the very least keep you slightly entertained for an hour and a half. It's pure, harmless fun with solid performances from the very likable Mamrie Hart, Hannah Hart and Grace Helbig (the YouTube Holy Trinity), who play three best friends. I would have liked to see more character development for Hannah Hart's character (Charlie) as I thought she was the most interesting of the 3. Does this film bring anything new to the table? No, not really. Think of this as the mild-mannered lovechild of Project X and Bridesmaids. It's a predictable film that played it really safe but is still a charming little film nonetheless.The weakest aspect of this film is a forced high-school romance between two incredibly forgettable characters that the film could have completely done without. Each time these two characters were on screen, the energy and pace of the film was slowed down and all I wanted to do was get back to the fun bits. Overall, I think big YouTube fans will enjoy this one the most as there are a bunch of awesome cameos to look forward to.
When the party is on, it is off the hook! Kate has only a few days to turn her life around before she turns Dirty 30, but with three besties and zero rules, anything is possible!
