I like this movie. A really nuanced and likably all over the place coming of age tale for teens and adults alike. It brilliantly captures the insular wisdom and solipsistic cliquishness of a group of believably damaged outsiders who haven't the faintest clue of life on Earth beyond the "truth" of their own emotional landscapes. Do you remember that innocent/arrogant headspace? I do, and this film touched some long dormant nerve endings. It successfully captures the darkness and vague pessimism that characterized many Gen-Xers (still hate that term) adolescence (the film is set in the bleak Reagan 80s) while managing to weave in uplifting threads of optimism that are always within reach (and totally uncool to talk about) in our yonker years. Sentimental? A little. But the good kind. It confuses me why people knock this film. In an era characterized by bland, slick, cookie-cutter productions, What Goes Up retains its jagged edges and its own soul. Of course the film is less than perfect. I think that the director and everyone involved would probably admit to that. There ain't a whole lot of money going into indie films anymore. Clearly there wasn't the chance to shoot second and third takes and spitshine things to glossy Twilight perfection. And that's great. There's something raw and vital here that appeals and some really fine performances. I applaud all involved for taking on some remote and complex material and trusting the audience to run with it.

Very strange film that doesn't really work. The characters are poorly developed and don't really make sense in their behaviour.
I barely managed to watch it once and wouldnt watch it again. A mediocre film at best.

So this film stars Hilary Duff in a role not to dissmiler too War Inc in that she is kinda nerotic. She plays her caracter lucy well. Her crying scenes are soo good. The story is about a reporter played by steve coogan and he is sent to cover a space mission. But instead stumbles on a group of kids from the shed. And it plays out from there. Its very enjoyable and if like me you love Hilary keep the credits on to hear the song she recorded for the film Any Other Day :D
