High school coming-of-age tale. It is the 1980's and new wave angst and gender-bending fashion are all the rage. The new kid at school, Chance Marquis is a somewhat awkward teenager who is the target of the school bully. To deal with this dilemma, Chance turns to the opposite ends of the high school spectrum for help. On one end is the flamboyant drag queen and at the other end, the varsity jock.

The Curiosity of Chance movie full length review - Pretty Awful

Definitely not worth spending any of your time on.

The Curiosity of Chance feels like a movie made by high school kids who had access to good equipment and who had seen ever John Hughes teen movie many many times and L-O-V-E-D the 80s.

The film looks good, is decently shot and edited, has believable costumes, and decent 80s tunes.

But the script is awful. The story feels as if it were made up as they went along but you know it wasn't because the dialog is so wordy, clunky, and stiff you wonder if it was written with industrial equipment. The humor is low, one expects to hear farting and burping throughout the film. When the vice-principal is introduced it's mentioned by Chance's narration that she smells bad. She smells bad! Hilarious. (Some might claim that the Curiosity of Chance is a send up of high school dramas but if that was the intent it fails.)

The story and characters are nothing but clichés and stereotypes. Chance is a Rosemary Clooney loving vintage clothes wearing drama kid who thinks a top hat and bow tie are sensible attire for his first day at a new school. Not very far into the film Chance ends up in the dressing room of a drag show listening to big bitchy queens dish out pat advice. Shortly after that Chance is putting on his mother's old dresses and makeup.

But at least Chance isn't alone as everyone in the film is a stereotype or movie cliché...Chance has a much younger sister who is wise beyond her years, the jocks are jerks, the outcasts are all friends, and so on and on and on.
