Sierra Burgess Is A Loser is a 2018 comedy and romance film directed by Ian Samuels and stars Shannon Purser, Noah Centineo, Kristine Froseth, and RJ Cycler. Shannon Purser plays Sierra Burgess, a girl in high school who is smart and aspires to go to Stanford University. Sierra is someone who does not fit into the stereotypical expectations of what a pretty high school girl should like, and is constantly bullied by a popular girl named Veronica (played by Kristine Froseth) who is a cliche popular high school girl. I had issues with the movie for several reasons, and the biggest one being the dialogue. Much of the dialogue seems forced and unrealistic, and this is a big let down for the film. The next difficulty I had with this movie is that the director portrays much of the characters in the film to have absolutely no common sense, which leads to them doing stupid things that the audience cannot stand to watch. The acting was alright, but it is clear to me that the director tried very hard to turn this movie into a cliche high school experience, with the mean girls picking on the unpopular girl. I wouldn’t recommend this movie, and give it a 5/10.
