Variety Review: ‘Flower’


As icky a comedy as you’re likely to see this year, “Flower” comes from an angry place — one that is clearly more concerned about sounding provocative and clever than having anything meaningful to say.

Seventeen-year-old Erica Vandross (Zoey Deutch) has serious trust issues. She feels abandoned by her dad, who’s serving time for a casino scam, and every other man she knows may as well be a pedophile. Erica loves Slurpees, Buffalo wings, and giving fellatio to strangers, including Luke (Joey Morgan), the schlubby son of her mom’s new boyfriend. Just because their parents are dating doesn’t make it incest, she points out.

The story is too old to be commented.
