Didn't believe these scenes and didn't care about these people, except Edie. Doesn't flatter Slate, New York, or the 90s.
I don't mean that it was the movie's goal to make them look good. But it doesn't stoke affection, furnish insights, or stir up any interest.
Only evokes the 90s by calling up ghosts of callow, Denise Calls Up-style indies that had so little to say but seemed proud of themselves.
