Weak Layers: Review. By Richard Schertzer.

This film by Katie Burrell certainly seems funny, if you can try and find the laughs somewhere. I’m certain if the CW was optioning for a comedy tv series, it might work, but not as a movie.

Director Katie Burrell seemed to have a decent cast on her hands but failed to do anything new with them. It’s almost as if the cast has been thrown into an improv room and were given a setting but rather than be able to do something revolutionary and différent, it comes off as a forgettable episode of “Whose Line is it Anyway”.



The film starts off with three millennial friends getting kicked out of their ski lodge home and having to move into their van. They see an idea to make a ski film in 72 hours as part of a film contest to win some money and get some notoriety as filmmakers.

The story seems to hop back and forth with plot points that never seem to truly go anywhere meaningful or intriguing. It lacks any depth for audiences to be invested in why these women are doing what they are doing because it seems that more than half of the cast don’t even care about what happens and are just sitting around waiting for things to happen.

Moreover, the script does the film no favors either as it seems like it was written for teenagers in high school. However, it seems like they replaced teenagers with millennials that act like teenagers. The term arrested development is strong here.

All in all, this film is about as emotionally inert as watching paint dry and fails to capture anything moving or redeeming even if some of the actors give some decent performances.
