If you’re looking for something new to watch this week - and Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story is too dark for you - then don’t worry, because Netflix has your back with its new high school teen comedy.
Fans have piling praise on the new flick, branding it ‘the best Netflix movie in years’ and ‘this generation’s Mean Girls’ - praise doesn’t come much higher than that, in my (burn) book.
Starring Stranger Things’ Maya Hawkes alongside Camila Mendes, Do Revenge is a fresh take on the hit 2000s teen comedies we all grew up with. You can see for yourself in the trailer here:
Do Revenge centres on Drea (played by Mendes) who wants to get revenge on her ex-boyfriend after he shared their sex tape.
Meanwhile, Eleanor (Hawke), is also seeking revenge after a damaging rumour is started about her at day camp. The pair strike up an unlikely friendship and set about a Strangers on a Train type plot, which involves them getting revenge for each other.
The movie landed on Netflix last week and quickly flew into the streaming platform’s most watched list.
And viewers have rushed to Twitter to praise on the new flick, with one person writing: “Do Revenge is a masterpiece.
"Managing to be perfectly contemporary while paying tribute to the best of the 90s/2000s teen comedies, this film is ambitious in its narrative and nails it. The soundtrack is incredible. Camila Mendes and Maya Hawke are absolutely electric. So good!”
Another said: “Just watched Do Revenge and this is the best Netflix movie I have seen in years. If you support lesbian characters played by Maya Hawke, if you support women's rights but also women's wrongs, if you want an iconic soundtrack and stunning outfits. Please, please watch this movie.”
While someone else posted: “Do Revenge was really good, probs the best Netflix original to come out in years and a great homage to early 2000s teen films.”
“Do Revenge has the potential of being this generation's Mean Girls. The movie has infinite gif-able moments, the throwbacks are gorgeous, and I didn’t expect a good original movie to hit Netflix anytime soon so the surprise is real. Go do Do Revenge,” a fourth person said.
If you needed any more convincing, then let me tell you that critics are also impressed. On review aggregator site Rotten Tomatoes, Do Revenge has a ‘certified fresh’ score of 85 percent, while its audience score is almost as high at 82 percent.
If you fancy checking it out for yourself Do Revenge is streaming on Netflix right now.
