Yes! I Love Mandy Lane
Reviewed by Xander_Kane

Let's go ahead and get this out of the way. I completely understand why all the boys love Mandy Lane. She is without question drop dead gorgeous. She also has a bit of mystery and innocence to her character. For this movie to even remotely work they had to find the perfect actress to fill the lead role. Amber Heard is the actress that plays the role of Mandy Lane. You may recognize her from such films as Drive Angry, The Stepfather (2009), and The Ward.

The basic story is all the boys at the high school want to have "relations" with Mandy Lane. Unfortunately for them she is pretty disinterested with all of them. One of the boys has decided to have a group of friends come out to his ranch for the weekend. Every male that is going is waiting with baited breathe on the fact if Mandy is coming or not. Good news for them! She is persuaded to come and the boys all become elated with boners. She has two female friends that are also going along to this rich kids Ranch.

What has been set up for you seems to be a generic scenario for your basic slasher film. Kids secluded at a location and bring plenty of booze and sex jokes to boot. What sets this one aside from the others is the overall tone. It takes things a bit more serious than your other slashers. The characters are not constantly spilling out stupid dialogue. Not that they avoid this completely but it is few and far between. Because of this the film feels darker than a cheesy "line them up to knock them down" slasher. There is also a grainer look to the film that keeps it at a dull color. As any director with half a mind knows that the music always plays a crucial role in selling the audience on what is happening on screen. The right choices were made in this department and kept me intrigued.

The film also offers a special twist at the end that you may or may not see coming. This is the most debatable part of All the Boys Love Mandy Lane. I did not see it coming and thought it was a great finish. Others may think that it doesn’t make any sense. But I say they are wrong. It is what sets it apart from being the old predictable ending. The movies slow start is probably the only real downfall. If you are ok with the slow start you should try it out. For me it wasn't your typical slasher film and I really appreciated that.
