(2014) (Adam Sandler, Jennifer Garner) (R)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Drama: Numerous teens and their parents have difficulties connecting with each other in the real world the more they become "connected" to each other on the Internet and in the virtual world.
- In a Texas suburb, multiple characters and their teenage offspring have problems connecting with each other in the real world, the more they become connected to the virtual world via social media, the Internet, mobile phones, and so forth. Don (ADAM SANDLER), a married father of two, is addicted to Internet pornography and hires a hooker to satisfy his sexual cravings. His wife, Helen (ROSEMARIE DeWITT), craves intimacy and pursues an affair with a married man via a related website. Their teenage son, Chris (TRAVIS TROPE), has been surfing Internet porn since he was 10 and can't achieve an erection in real life with the cheerleader of his dreams, Hannah (OLIVIA CROCICCHIA).
Hannah, meanwhile, dreams of being a music or TV star. Her mother, Donna (JUDY GREER), dreams that, too, and has launched a website featuring provocative pictures of the girl in hopes that it will attract a modeling agency or Hollywood talent scout. She becomes involved with Kent (DEAN NORRIS), whose wife recently left him for another man and he has been having a hard time picking up the pieces with his teenage son, Tim (ANSEL ELGORT).
Tim has quit the football team and become obsessed with the virtual identity he has created in the online, role-playing video-gaming community. He has one connection in the real world, and that's with Brandy (KAITLYN DEVER) whose overly protective mom, Patricia (JENNIFER GARNER), monitors her every movement both online and offline. Their mutual friend, Allison (ELENA KAMPOURIS), has an eating disorder and goes on websites and chat rooms to connect with people who give her dangerous tips on how to stay thin -- all under the nose of her clueless father (J.K. SIMMONS).

- Teenagers will have some interest due to so much of the focus being on high school-age characters.
