Not Okay (2022) Review

Not Okay plot summary

Zoey Deutch plays Danni Sanders, an aimless, aspiring writer with no friends, no romantic prospects, and worst of all fans, who pretends to travel to Paris in hopes of boosting her social media presence. When a horrific event hits the City of Lights, Dany inadvertently falls for a bigger lie than she ever imagined.

She “returns” as a hero, and even strikes an unlikely friendship with school shooting survivor Rowan (Mia Isaac), and she finds the love of her dreams, Colin (Dylan O’Brien). As an advocate, Danni finally has the life and audience she’s always wanted.

Not Okay review

Not Okay is a fun American movie with a lead character that most audiences love and hate, but the supporting cast who steal the show. The lead character, Danni, is the worst part of the movie, irritating and opinionated.

The plot is predictable because of the flow of the movie, and how it starts at the end and then flashes back to the beginning of the story. Considering this isn’t based on a true story, it does get viewers interested in how the movie ends, but it’s frustrating to know the ending.

Zoey Deutch plays Danni Sanders, the problem is she’s so unlikable, the longer the story gets, the harder it is for people to be interested in her life. While there are a few lovely characters around her, they don’t get enough time on the scene, which could take a lot of viewers away from the story.

Midway through the film, audiences really start to feel uncomfortable, and Mia Isaac, who plays Rowan, is the only saving grace. Even Dylan O-Brien’s rendition, who plays Colin, is like chalk on a blackboard.

Of course “Not Okay” also conveys a good revelation about being yourself; and if you lie to enhance your reputation, career, or personal gain, karma will eventually come. However.

The film is tangled at times, which means that the story surrounding Rowan and her reasons for becoming a gun law activist stole the show. Of course, this movie is about Danni and her lies, all to impress a boy and make her a super-influencer. But Rowan’s story brings love to the film.

The movie “Not Okay” is brilliant at times, but frustratingly slow and annoying to others. Still, the whole movie is filled with heart and humor, and while you’re sure to hate Danni, you’re sure to love Rowan. The ending was depressing, but also fitting, and it was a great summer movie.

Rating: 3/5
