With “Terri” I begin a whole new approach to my film reviews. I will no longer have the “1-minute reviews” posts if the movies at hand are worth analyzing more fully and in response to the often incomplete and insatisfactory nature of my recent shorter reviews.
With that in mind, lets go back to today’s review.
“Terri” is a cute little film that follows a High School teenager that bears the name of the movie’s title. Terri is overweight, some would say obese, a fact that makes him the target of bullies and the source of some of his insecurities. No less important to his predicament is that Terri lives alone with his uncle, an old man suffering from Alzheimer’s disease who is not fully capable of raising a troubled teenager.
