An Incredibly Original Take on a Common Story
So I came into this as a fan of Jessica Williams from the Daily Show, and hoping I would enjoy the film. It starts out a little rough, as I found Jessica's acting to be a little wooden, but as the movie went on, I felt like her acting really improved, especially with all of her scenes with her students. The beginning of the film is definitely the weakest part, as the character isn't likable, and the dialogue especially with her friend felt very forced. However, similar to her acting, as the movie progressed it greatly improved.

At its core, this movie is a retread of just about every Romantic Comedy cliché, but surrounding this core is the meat of the film examining a modern day artistic black woman that came from a broken family. The movie examines a lot of Jessica's backstory through her teaching of the children in her class, where she's trying to pass on her love of creative writing and acting and helping them realize they can do whatever they want in their lives. One student especially mirrors Jessica, as she's a young intelligent black girl whose parents have recently divorced. The movie examines a lot of interesting aspects here, as Jessica turns very vindictive and mean when the student wants to go to six flags for her father's weekend with her instead of a writing retreat. I really enjoyed how the film resolved this conflict, and all of these scenes were probably my favorite parts of the film.

For the romantic comedy part of this film, it's again an interesting take on common tropes. She has a blind date with Chris O'Dowd, and both of them are still in love with their exes, but in spite of their disinterest in a new relationship it starts to form on its own. I enjoyed that the guy wasn't just some guy for her to date, he also has a lot of problems, and their growing relationship feels real as they have pretty good chemistry. There are some odd dream sequences though, where Jessica meets up with her ex, and the scenes read as they're actually happening, but then something crazy happens and it's revealed to have been a dream all along. I understand the dreams purpose, as they're Jessica working through her relationship in her mind, but I just wish it was more apparent they were dream sequences.

There are some really funny moments intermixed with the relationship stuff, along with some really funny scenes when she goes to visit her family. Unfortunately, the scenes with her family were a little too black and white, unlike the rest of the film. Perhaps it was because the writer/director strongly dislikes his family, and it comes out in the movie. It seems like all they do is judge Jessica, and they don't have any redeeming factors.

Overall, I really enjoyed the film despite its flaws, and I would recommend it if you have Netflix. If you'd like to see my video version of this review, you can check it out here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CGoBeIuKTyk

Bad writing, stiff acting
This movie needs to be better for the sake of women, artists, and people off color. The only funny thing about this "comedy" is Chris O'Dowd. The woman who plays Jessica has zero emotional range and seems like a caricature of black woman (please, please, please don't say "dope"). She comes across as a complete inconsiderate idiot in the opening credits when she drops some other guy's laundry on the floor while dancing through the halls, and literally asks about no other person's life in the entire film. She uses her sister's baby shower as an excuse to ridicule people who live their lives differently than her. She explains that she likes "dialogue driven" work that explores the human condition and rags on Cats, but her actual "play" in the movie is a ridiculous reworking of a small child's broken birthday. So small and pathetic. Women writers do so much more and this is a mockery of female art... because the whole movie was written by a man who doesn't know better.

Just because you caught a unicorn in the wild
JimStrouse & Netflix The Incredible Jessica James A funny, well written and delivered light hearted comedy about moving on from an ex and working towards your dreams. A smooth enjoyable watch, which leaves you wanting more. @JessicaWilliams performance makes you connect to the character and makes the emotions feel bigger than life. An example of this, her smelling the Vicks rub before going to bed. The jump suit and looking disappointed.That her little sister didn't think, she was cool enforces the emotions. Also, co stars were well cast and added to the energy. Part 2 London needs to be made!!!!

"Just because you caught a unicorn in the wild, doesn't mean you get to tap it all the time."

Low key entertainment with a strong female lead
I knew nothing about this movie when it popped up on my Netflix ... and I'm happy to say that it grabbed my interest right away. The story line isn't very novel at all, but what makes the movie worthwhile is a very unusually unorthodox female lead, brilliantly portrayed by Jessica Williams. She is feisty and fun and totally unhinged at the same time.

Sure, there are flaws to be found on this movie in retrospect but all in all I can recommend it.

Perpetual selfishness
A few funny lines, one heart warming moment, and a ton of awkwardly fake sounding forced scenarios... a selfish girl learns to go through life and ends the movie learning to continue being selfish to her the new guy that is falling for her. I don't see the reason this movie was made.

Geniously right-thinking
Right-minded people are gonna love this movie. But only them. Any aspect, any detail, any suggestion, any thought if you can call it that way will achieve the purpose to frame how a right mind should nowadays perceive, process and store data. There is actually a bit of genius behind all this representation of reality. It just doesn't fit with some of us.

Finally, something NEW
Last week I asked Hollywood to give me something new, fresh and exciting. When no thunderclap blazed through the sky in order to solidify the delivery of my plea, I assumed I would be saddled with repetitive movies forever. That is until Jessica Williams, an actress formerly on the daily show, debuted her newest project The Incredible Jessica James, the movie follows Jessica James, an aspiring playwright who has been struggling to cope with a breakup, as she learns lessons of love, career, and friendship.

The movie is delightfully clever and witty as it brings the issues of millennial life to the silver screen. Yes, at the core of it all it is a romantic comedy, a woman meets a man and they date, but beyond that we receive a strong female lead from Jessica Williams who captures the spirit of all of us who choose to continue following their passions in this daring film. She is slightly unhinged and incredibly determined, which can be witnessed in everything from obsessing over her break up, to leaving strangers vulnerable voice mails, going on embarrassing and awkward dates, and intense friendship moments, all be it with an eleven year old girl, served to cast this film as one of my favorites in 2017.

While the rest of Hollywood is coasting on sequel and reiterating the same plot with new casts, Jim Crouse the films writer and director took risks, raised the hard questions, and pushed viewers out of their comfort zone. I struggled to hold back tears for the entire film.

Different and decent, but not quite incredible
Although this film isn't all that generic in the scope of your typical romantic comedy, and has a decent balance between comedy and drama throughout, it unfortunately falls down due to one simple feature: the main character. With a very unlikable central personality (despite a decent performance from Jessica Williams), and a screenplay with a pretty vague perspective on her behaviour, it's very difficult to come round to like anything about this film, ultimately proving a far more irritating watch than the charming quirkiness it wants to flaunt so much.

But before we get into that, let's look on the positive side, firstly with the fact that the film does pretty well to avoid the worst tropes of the romantic comedy genre, and provide a fairly engaging watch throughout. It's not a story that will have you fully engrossed in any of the characters, but the great thing is that it never goes so far as to pull in unoriginal genre tropes to save a less-than-stellar story, always pushing on with something a little different, and that's pretty admirable to see.

Also, it's not really a drag. Despite its failings in developing convincing or even likable characters, the film does manage to balance its comedic and dramatic side pretty well throughout, and manages to keep things on the comedic front as genuine and human as possible, something that comes through very well in the on screen performances and chemistry between Jessica Williams and Chris O'Dowd, while the drama is decent enough to remain moderately engaging throughout, effectively interspersed with good light-hearted breaks.

That's not to say the film is a properly funny one, because it's not really there to make you laugh out loud, but what it does do well is manage itself when it comes to being a proper drama, and uses humour well to keep things light, and as such more enjoyable than it could have been.

Unfortunately, all of those positives do fall into the shadows when it comes to the film's glaring flaw right in the middle: the supposedly 'incredible' Jessica James. I'll stress that the issues with the central character aren't really anything to do with Williams' performance, but it's the personality that's written for her, and the atmosphere surrounding her in the rest of the story, that really lets the film down as a whole.

Firstly, it's clear that the film wants to show Jessica James as a strong-willed, independent young woman with forward-thinking ideals, and yet still doesn't have everything about her life as together as she'd like. Now, a strong and confident central character is fair enough, but this screenplay unfortunately goes too far in that regard, and she becomes a downright aggressive and genuinely unpleasant person at times.

There's a big difference between being a quirky outsider with ambitions that others don't understand and just being cold and unpleasant to others, and unfortunately Jessica James is far closer to the latter than she should be, making coming round to her side when she's going through various difficulties very hard.

However, what's worse is the fact that the film as a whole doesn't seem to want her to change and become a better person. If there is character development here, Jessica James becomes a more worldly and wise character, but nothing about her rather unpleasant personality really changes from start to finish.

What's even stranger is that the film seems to know that she's cold and a little aggressive, and yet chooses to do nothing about it. There's one sequence in which she returns to her family in Ohio, disgusted by the fact that she has to hang around with boring countryside folk in comparison to her modern NYC lifestyle, and constantly preaching her amazing ideas and beliefs, shoving them in the faces of her perfectly harmless and pleasant family.

And yet, despite being shown as clearly ungrateful and uncaring in that sequence, the screenplay doesn't really act on it, and allows her to continue behaving in such a way for the remainder of the story, something that really struck me as a wrong move, given that it just made it harder and harder for me to understand exactly where the film's perspective on this woman lies, and made for a very frustrating watch.

Overall, The Incredible Jessica James isn't a bad film, and with decent acting, a non-generic story, and good humour, it can be enjoyable, but it all falls down due to its central focus, a very unlikable and inconsistent central character that's by no means 'incredible' like the title suggests.

Expected My Expectations
Sooooo Good!!! Filled with hilarious humor, Jessica Williams is a superbly talented actress. Watching the fantasies of having an awkward post break up conversation with her ex was so funny! Lakeith Stanfield is such a cutie. I was like ooh that's the guy from the movie, "Get Out." Chris O'Dowd portrayed Boone a recent divorcée, and he is also a very funny actor with much to contribute in terms of building his connection to Jessica. Tasha reminds me of Six from Blossom for some reason. She's so funny with such a bubbly personality! The drama class scenes with the children was so creative. Will Netflix turn this into a TV show because I definitely want to see more from this cast.
