Spoiler Alert, Sierra Burgess Is a Great Movie

I stumbled across the movie, “Sierra Burgess Is a Loser,” when I was looking for something to watch on Netflix. I noticed that Noah Centieo was in the movie and he had also acted in, “To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before,” a movie I had previously watched and loved. Since I enjoyed that movie a lot, I thought that Sierra Burgess would most likely be good as well.

The movie follows the life of a teenage girl, Sierra Burgess, as she takes on life through high school. She is your stereotypical school outcast; she doesn’t have many friends, she doesn’t have a “perfect body” and she often gets picked on by the more popular characters. Through an odd series of events, her cell phone number ends up in the hands of Jamey, the quarterback and jock of the school who Sierra also has a crush on; however, Jamey believes he has gotten the number of Veronica, a popular cheerleader. You could see how this becomes a problem when Sierra must pretend to be someone she’s not in order to get closer to her love interest.

Overall I thought the movie was amusing. I think it incorporated the feeling of having a crush well and expressed those emotions clearly through multiple characters. There were various romantic scenes for example when Jamey and Sierra shared their first kiss, although, at the time, Jamey thought he was kissing Veronica.

There were also many comedic scenes such as when Sierra had to pretend to be deaf so Jamey wouldn’t recognize her voice. In an attempt to convince him, she ended up signing random motions, but as it turns out Jamey was fluent in sign language so he associated the movement with random words.

Despite all the charming and fun scenes, there were a few that ended up being awkward. There are some things that are said between Sierra and Jamey during their text conversations that would seem odd if someone said them in real life. There were also actions that could have been taken to solve conflict earlier in the movie. Some conflict could have been easily avoided, like the inevitable fight that arises between Sierra and Veronica when they started getting along; which appeared to be an attempt to make the movie longer as the scenes were dragged out.

All in all, “Sierra Burgess is a Loser,” was a good movie with a good moral: no matter what you look like or what you’re good at, there will always be someone to love you. Even if you’re not interested in a teenage romantic comedy, I would still give “Sierra Burgess Is a Loser,” a watch because of the film quality and the meaning behind it.
