Didn't add up,
This review is from: Blue Jasmine (DVD)
Vaguely interesting but hardly "Sleeper" or "Annie Hall" and in places it just didn't add up. Jasmine has gone from uber-rich to destitute; well in that case why didn't she sell the Hermes bag or the luggage? She still appeared to have kept an extensive wardrobe despite arriving at her sister's house with 'nothing'.
Sister Ginger, whose house is certainly downmarket in comparison to what Jasmine had, but still roomy and filled with non-essentials, stacks shelves at the supermarket so is, presumably, on minimum wage and a zero hours contract. She has two kids to support but still manages to accompany Jasmine to swish parties, dine in above-average restaurants and buy champers when the dead-beat boyfriend (who was the best thing in it) returns. And who buys the prodigious amounts of vodka that Jasmine drinks throughout without getting drunk?
These niggling discrepancies masked any desire I might have had to sympathise with the characters or be bothered to care what happened to them by the end - which took a very long time coming.
