Life-Size 2 (2018)
Steven K. Tsuchida
Grace is a hot mess in the middle of a quarter-life crisis, realizing that she is in over her head as a toy company’s CEO. To make it worse, her wild-child ways are causing the company’s stock to plummet.
I remember watching the first movie years ago, but don’t really remember much about it. I watched this movie last night and I’m experiencing the same phenomenon. It was truly unremarkable and had very little to do with Christmas.
Grace, Francia Raisa, is an Atlanta party girl that is supposed to be running her mom’s business. She acts like a spoiled child and accepts no blame for anything. She eventually acts like an adult, but I don’t really feel like her character grew.
Eve, Tyra Banks, comes to life, is super kooky, and somehow teaches Grace life lessons. She falls in love with a chef, though, she’s so childlike that was kind of creepy, but it ends with her turning back into a doll and taking her chef with her, which was even creepier.
Grace also has a love interest but that is sort of shoe horned in there and apart from physical attraction there’s really no reason why these people are together.
Lots of stuff was shoved into the movie and it just did not connect.
