I didn't really know what to expect with this movie, but I enjoy Bella Thorne and it looked like it could be decent. Boy was I wrong. This movie is terrible. I'm gonna save you time and tell you right here in the first paragraph - don't waste your time on it. 

You Get Me is the story of Tyler, a high school student (played by an obviously twenty-something) who gets dumped by his girlfriend and immediately has a wild 24 hours with the gorgeous Holly (Bella Thorne). The next day his girlfriend, Ali, takes him back, and he assumes all will be well. Then Holly turns up at school, gets close to Ali and his group of friends, and appears to have a dark past and a dark obsession with Tyler. 

Once you know that you can pretty much predict the whole movie. There were chances when it could have done something original, something surprising but it didn't. Bella Thorne was the only decent actor, everyone else was, well, clearly acting. The dialogue was stilted and silly, and some of the plot was just downright preposterous. 

MILD SPOILER ALERT (but you shouldn't care because you shouldn't watch this movie):

At the climax of the movie things were of course getting wildly dangerous and it was clearly time to involve the authorities. Like there were so many instances when any normal rational person would have called the cops and not a single person did (and there wasn't anything stopping them!). I was literally SHOUTING at the TV - CALL THE COPS WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU?!? Joel had to tell me to calm down, but it was so dang irritating. 

Anyway, it legit sucks. There are so many better movies to watch in this world so trust me, don't waste your time on this one.
