Review:

In Brief:

WALK OF SHAME is a comedy about Meghan, who’s finally up for a huge promotion to anchor the news at a national TV station. Everything she has done in her career is to get to this point. Her friends, Rose and Denise, decide to take her out to celebrate. The three get drunk, and Meghan goes home with the bartender, Gordon. Waking up in the middle of the night, Meghan listens to a voicemail saying she must perform the next day at the station to land the job. Leaving Gordon’s apartment, she has no phone, no car and no money. Comical misadventures follow.
The best part of WALK OF SHAME is the charming Elizabeth Bank, who plays Meghan. The rest of the movie falls short in the laugh department. WALK OF SHAME has a Romantic worldview. What starts off the plot is the main character getting drunk and going home with a man she just met. Later, she encounters drug deals, prostitutes, cocaine addicts, and gang members. WALK OF SHAME warrants extreme caution. It’s not a movie for teenagers, especially teenage girls.
