Better than expected
I really, really dislike what this movie represents - lack of respect for responsibilities and other people, no real accountability, etc. I felt anxious, irritated and/or uncomfortable for most of the movie, and I disliked the girls quite a bit. However, whether or not I like or agree with the topic and characters, I don't think it matters as much as the reaction they provoke. With that said, I think I was supposed to feel all those emotions, unless I could relate (I couldn't), so job well done.
The lack of sex and nudity (especially considering the type of movie) shows they were actually trying to tell a story, instead of using cheap tricks for shock value, so kudos for that as well.
The brother was my favorite character; he was so terrible and ridiculous, he had me cracking up throughout the movie. Kyle Mooney was funny, of course, playing the same character as always.
If you liked American Honey and Spring Breakers, give this one a shot. It's not as good, but I liked it a lot more than I expected (judging by the first 10-15 minutes).
