Criticism of Personal Assistant: comedy out of tune

Personal Assistant (The High Note) premiered yesterday on the Spanish title, directed by Nisha Ganatra and starring Dakota Johnson, Tracee Ellis Ross and Ice Cube.

Set in the vibrant Los Angeles music scene, it tells the story of Grace Davis, a superstar whose talent and ego have reached unsuspected limits. Maggie is his assistant, a girl with more work than he can cover and in which his childhood dream: to become a music producer is still latent. When Grace's manager offers her an opportunity that could alter her career path, Maggie and Grace begin to hatch a complicated plan with which they are determined to forever change their lives.

Personal Assistant is not exactly the motivation that the public needs to return to theaters,

we face a two-hour humorless comedy in which he does not manage to define the tone. The film is divided into two plots that will converge at the end with a happy ending, typical of Hollywood. Could not miss a romance that only hinders the plot and that it serves only to fill. As well as the way in which the plots are developed is forced and stuffed with shoehorn. Nonsense.

The cast of Personal Assistant is correct,

We have a Dakota Johnson who exudes energy and charisma in equal parts and makes the film more entertaining. Another strong point are the moments and musical references, very well chosen. Perhaps the weakest point is the plot itself, that seems to come from the late nineties or early two thousand. It seems out of date to me, like the humor he spends, which seems to come out of that era …

Another thing that squeaks at me is the title.

The original version is called The High Note and they have “translated” with an english title… Can you be more ridiculous? I say no. The tone is a bit fuzzy, I don't know if it pretends to be a musical, a romantic comedy or something else. Technically it is very good, it is well written, even if it falls on the topics and fillers. It's correct. But you can not squeeze much. It has less juice than a stone.
