Movie Marathon | Two Night Stand (2014)


Ever since the movie Project X (2012), it seems like Miles Teller was always on the big screen—the guy practically has more than two movies in a year! For 2013, he was the lead for The Spectacular Now along with Shailene Woodley; and then there's another movie called 21 & Over. For 2014, he was in WhiplashThat Awkward Moment with Zac Efron and Michael B. Jordan; he was also in Divergent with Shailene Woodley again; and this movie, Two Night Stand with Annaleigh Tipton (Crazy, Stupid, Love). 

Warning, spoilers ahead!

The boyfriend and I watched this after a tiresome day (of playing with his cute little nephews!) at a private resort in Pansol, Laguna. He said he'd been wanting to watch it because he heard/read that it was good. At the beginning of the movie, I felt like I was watching a documentary about a pre-med graduate with a mid-life crisis. Coming from a breakup, the girl was obviously in a wreck coping up. The first few scenes were boring, maybe because I never liked Analeigh Tipton's teensy weensy voice, it made me yawn even more (we watched the movie past midnight)...

A few scenes here and there, and then she got to chat with this guy he just met online for a booty call—several miles away from where she lives, but goes there anyway to get it over with. I mean, who does that?? Anyway, there goes Miles Teller's character—I never really liked him too, despite his "charismatic appeal" which is by the way according to people and articles online, which I disagree. Sorry, fans.

Basically, they had a one night stand, but the bed scenes weren't shown. They ended up hating each other; girl left the guy's apartment but apparently, it was snowing really really bad, that everything was just ice and snow. Girl can't get out of the apartment because the door was stuck because of a thick ice; they agreed to be nice to each other and eventually talked about their one night stand and thought of ways to improve it; then re-enacts it; then kind of falls in love with each other; then girl discovers the guy has a girlfriend; she freaks out, and left; guy doesn't even know her name so he thought of making her go to prison by her first name to find out her whole name; girl gets mad but guy completely sweeps her off her feet; they patch things up and leave prison. THE END. All those happened in what, two nights. Hence, two night stand. Yeap, you read that right.

What I only enjoyed in this movie is the fact that there's actually a nickname for the snowstorm and it's the "Snowpocalypse" *ba dum tss*. And I must agree on this though, their sex scenes in their "two-night stand" were well made—you have to see it for yourself. Well, that's it. 

The verdict: I wouldn't recommend it, nor consider it good because I felt like I was just watching a documentary of two young adults, totally a stranger to each other "get it over with".  Definitely not the best movie, but if you like Miles Teller and/or Analeigh Tipton, go ahead.
