Summary: “Charlie is a troublesome 18-year-old who breaks out of a youth drug treatment clinic, but when he returns home to Los Angeles, he’s given an intervention by his parents and forced to go to an adult rehab. There, he meets a beautiful but troubled girl, Eva, and is forced to battle with drugs, elusive love and divided parents.”
Being Charlie is kind of like your typical blah movie that isn’t bad, but still isn’t making it onto any best movie lists. It’s about a kid with a drug problem and rich parents who don’t really want to deal with what their son is going through so they send him away. You can pretty much guess what happens in the movie without even watching it.
It has a few funny and deep moments throughout, but not enough to carry the basic story. I enjoyed it as a movie that kind of just passes the time.
If you’ve got nothing to do and are looking for a show to have on in the background, this one might be a good choice, other than that, don’t sit down expecting to watch your next favorite movie.
Available on Netflix.
