Unless Ian McKellen is involved anywhere in the process. Then you have to give it a go.
Miss in Her Teens is a classical farce of pretty impressive longevity, if the soon to be released film adaptation is any kind of indication, which was first performed in 1747 and now finds its filmic counterpart landing over 250 years later. It follows the comedic (mis)fortunes of young Biddy Belair and the various suitors she tries to keep at bay as she waits for the return of the man she really wants, who is fighting in France. Owing to the instance of her aunt, and it being the 1700s, she can’t really just say no, so she finds some degree of entertainment in playing the some of the suitors against each other, and thus convincing them that she’s not really worth it.
The trailer is a pretty fair indication as to whether or not you’ll want to give this film a try, or will just rile your feathers. The broad comedic characters and high-pitched energy are on full display, from the camp Mr. Fribble to the aggressive manliness of Captain Flash (even the names scream pantomime). It all looks very bright and lively, and with a story that looks to tear forward like an episode of Blackadder the Third, but without the deadpan knowingness. That said, it all does look like a great blast of life and fun, and all the cast are clearly going for it. If you think this could be your thing, keep an eye out for this one.
