Tall Girl 2 [UPD]

Parents need to know that Tall Girl 2 (the sequel to 2019's Tall Girl) is tamer than the original and takes the story away from the main character, Jodi (Ava Michelle), being bullied for her height and toward how she grapples with her own insecurities. The film shows that everyone has doubts about making friends, finding an identity or passion, and performing. The diverse cast of teens and family members support each other to be the best versions of themselves. Even mean girl Kimmy (Clara Wilsey) isn't so bad in the sequel, and she learns lessons of kindness, too (though she does suggest slipping a Nyquil into Jodi's smoothie to sabotage her performance in the musical). Expect a bit of kissing and language ("hell," "damn," "God," "jeez").

Tall Girl 2


This film isn't so much tall as it is thin. The characters of Tall Girl 2 are familiar and sweet, the story is predictable and the ending is predictably happy, and there's also some accomplished singing and dancing from the teen cast. But a handful of scenes are surprisingly clunky, with awkward pauses in dialogues, and Jodi's inner voice is a clumsy device that gets old fast.

The film will appeal to an audience younger than its actual characters, and it could give them the misleading idea that all high schoolers are insanely creative and talented. Chalk that up to an endowed cast, particularly Michelle as tall girl Jodi and Eisner as the Swedish exchange student who provides welcome comic relief. New Orleans is on attractive display.

A girl talks about how her dad lives in another state and has never been to one of her school performances. He always promises to attend but winds up sending a postcard in apology instead. She burns his most recent postcard to symbolize that she will no longer allow herself to believe him.

Violence: A girl accidently kicks another girl in the face while trying to dance. Sexual Content: Teenage couples kiss throughout. A woman makes a brief joke about being fertile. Profanity: One mild expletive and seven uses of terms of deity. Alcohol / Drug Use: A girl makes a brief reference to slipping someone some Nyquil.

After her inspiring speech at the homecoming dance, Jodi (Ava Michelle) is no longer just the "tall girl" - she's popular, confident, has a boyfriend, and just booked the lead role in this year's school musical.

After her inspiring speech at the homecoming dance, Jodi (Ava Michelle) is no longer just the "tall girl" - she's popular, confident, has a boyfriend, and just booked the lead role in this year's school musical. But as the pressure of her newfound popularity intensifies, so do her insecurities, and new relationships are formed while old ones are tested. As the world she built starts to crumble around her, Jodi realizes that standing tall was only just the beginning.

Jodi pursuing a hidden passion for musical theater while continuing to struggle with her height is not the most creative plot device, but it still creates an interesting conflict beyond mean encounters with classmates in the hallway. At least this plot line feels vaguely realistic and does not make viewers wonder why everyone is obsessed with one girl's height.

The most developed character was probably Kimmy (Clara Wilsey), who started as the typical mean girl but eventually matured and even showed a sliver of her inner compassion when she helped Jodi in the play. Watching her finally strive to become a better person rather than regain her queen bee status was a sweet addition to the movie.

She was able to tap into a lot of her personal experiences. That sequence in the film where she ends up kicking someone in the chin at rehearsal actually happened to Ava in real life! So we worked that into the film because it's very true to her experience as a very tall dancer.

While watching a film that harps on the inconsequential problems of privileged teenagers might be a fun distraction for an hour and half, in reality, the production makes a mockery of people who face tangible problems on an everyday basis for the way they present or identify themselves. At the end of the day, people like Jodi have an upperhand in the real world, and trying to pretend that Jodi faces true societal backlash just for being tall is simply misleading.

The film opens with Kreyman and her boyfriend, Jack Dunkleman quickly discussing the events of the previous movie in a conversation that lasts two minutes, sloppily providing a summary of what occurred in the prior installment.

Jodi Kreyman - the tallest girl in her high school - has always felt uncomfortable being herself, especially when compared to her beauty pageant queen sister, Harper. But after years of being made fun of and avoiding attention at all costs, Jodi finally decides to find the confidence to stand tall when a new foreign exchange student arrives at her school.

The film was directed by Nzingha Stewart and stars Ava Michelle as the titular Tall Girl, Sabrina Carpenter as Harper, Angela Kinsey and Steve Zahn as Jodi's parents, Luke Eisner as Stig, the sexy (and tall!) Swedish Foreign Exchange Student, and Griffin Gluck as Jodi's beleagured best friend.

  • The sequel provides examples of: Appeal to Worse Problems: As a result of the criticism the first movie receives due to Jodi complaining about her hard life only because of Height Angst, a teacher calls her out on it in the sequel: Teacher: What would you say to people who don't think that being tall is a real problem? Getting a terminal illness, being homeless, not knowing where your next meal is coming from... Those are real problems. But you seem to have so much going for you. What do you have to complain about? Jodi: Well, I'm not saying being tall is worse than those things. It's just sometimes it feels like it is, but I know that it's not. It just... doesn't make all the bad things that have happened to me every day of my entire life any less real.

  • Ascended Extra: Jodi's best friend Fareeda was a Token Black Friend and Satellite Character in the first movie. Here she has her own subplot and gets a Love Interest in Stig.

  • Class Princess: Jodi is now very popular, and is shown to be helpful and friendly to all the students who talk to her.

  • Dude Magnet: Jodi, just like she was in the first movie. While Stig has finally gotten over her, Dunkelman and Schnipper are still in love with Jodi, and new character Tommy also shows interest in her.

  • Lovable Alpha Bitch: Kimmy, who was a Hate Sink in the first movie, redeems herself at the end and starts being kind to Jodi.

  • No Antagonist: Since all the antagonists from the first movie Took a Level in Kindness, there is no villain. The main conflict is caused by the relationship problems of Jodi and Dunkelman and Jodi's anxiety issues.

  • Pair the Spares: Played straight with Fareed and Stig who officially hook up, even if the two characters barely interacted in the first movie.

  • Averted with Kimmy and Schnipper. While their friendship is fleshed out in the sequel, Schnipper is still in love with Jodi.

  • Put on a Bus: Liz is briefly mentioned moving away from town.

  • Took a Level in Kindness: Stig, Schnipper, and eventually even Kimmy lose their negative traits they had in the first movie after some Character Development.

Netflix is following up Tall Girl with a sequel film that goes beyond the realities of just being the "tall girl" in high school. Tall Girl 2's trailer arrived from the streamer on Jan. 19. This time around, Jodi (Ava Michelle) grapples with no longer being known as the tallest girl at her school but instead the confident, popular girl with a boyfriend and the lead role in her school's spring musical. But with more popularity comes more pressure and a lot more tests for her relationships.

On the other hand, Jack becomes visibly upset and confronts the man for his comment. Eventually, he cools off once Jodi tells him it doesn't bother her. The scene cuts back to Jake from State Farm and his girlfriend, who looks ready to scold him.

In my observation, most films don't need sequels because they have nothing potent to say that wasn't executed the first time around. This particularly holds truer for teen dramas. With Netflix continuing on with its habit of churning out franchises out of high-school romances what with The Kissing Booth and To All the Boys series, the newest one we get is Tall Girl 2. The first time around, it was a romantic drama that revolved around Jodi (Ava Michelle) trying to stand up to the bullying she faces on account of her tall frame, with the second film, we get to see what happens after her grand Homecoming speech where she proudly stands up for herself and accepts herself the way she is.

The Tall Girl sequel feels inessential from the beginning itself. The film kicks off with Jodi (Michelle) and Dunkleman (Griffin Gluck) giving us a revision of all that happened in the first film and honestly, after that, it seems even more strange as to why we are getting a sequel. The new film then takes us through Jodi and Dunklemna's relationship which starts off on a sweet note as the duo share romantic moments together. Following her speech at the Homecoming dance, Jodi now finds herself among the school's popular kids and hence she no longer walks the hallways staring down but in fact, we see her giving high-fives to other kids. Although Jodi's newfound popularity and her new dream of starring in the Spring musical soon become major hurdles in her otherwise smooth relationship with Dunkleman. As the 'Tall girl' bags her first role as a lead in her school's Bye Bye Birdie musical, Jodie soon finds herself fighting her own insecurities and dealing with anxiety attacks.

Netflix's "Tall Girl 2" is streaming Friday, the sequel to the streaming service's 2019 film about a 6-foot-3 teenage girl who falls for an even taller foreign exchange student before realizing she's in love with her much shorter best friend. 041b061a72
