"Shallow Story Drowned in Excessive Crudity"
What You Need To Know:
DESPERADOS has a talented roster of actors but ends up drowning what little charm it has with lots of foul language, an obsession with lewd, crude joking, and a feeble story. The movie has a strong Romantic worldview, with pagan elements, where the characters are motivated by their lust for self-love and also visit a pregnancy shaman. DESPERADOS does contain brief instances of forgiveness, honesty and unconditional love between Wesley and her friends. However, due to the excessive lewd content and constant foul language, MOVIEGUIDE® deems DESPERADOS excessively immoral and unacceptable.
DESPERADOS follows, Wesley, a 30-year-old woman who’s unemployed and single despite having plenty of interviews and blind dates. Feeling as if she’s fallen behind in life compared to her two best friends, Brooke and Kaylie, Wesley is desperate to find a way to advance her life and not have to eat the food of the child she babysits.
After a failed blind date, Wesley stumbles into a guy named Jared, who checks off all the boxes. He’s handsome and seems interested in Wesley. However, soon after meeting Jared, she realizes that she’s faking her way into his heart but is willing to overlook their lack of chemistry to begin her new life with him.
After a month of dating Jared, Wesley doesn’t hear from him for five days and is distraught at the idea that Jared could be another failed attempt at a relationship. She’s consoled by Brooke and Kaylie, who, along with the help of some alcohol, help her write a calloused and hostile email to Jared. Regrettably, Jared calls Wesley just as the email is sending, telling her about a severe car crash he experienced while in Cabo, Mexico.
Having misinterpreted Jared ghosting her, Wesley knows that her perfect image will be ruined if Jared reads the email. Despite some reluctance, she convinces Brooke and Kaylie to join her on a mission to go to Cabo and delete the email from Jared’s computer while he recovers in the hospital. Eventually, Wesley must decide what’s more important to her: having real relationships with people who see her for who she truly is, or faking it for the ideal man.
