Netflix film dubbed ‘worst movie ever’
THERE'S a new contender for the worst movie on Netflix.
The streaming giant has made some stinkers in the past (The Ridiculous Six, The Kissing Booth, A Christmas Prince), but viewers around the world seem truly shocked at how bad the recently released Tall Girl is.
According to the synopsis: "Jodi has always been the tallest girl in school, and she's always been uncomfortable with it. After slouching her way through life for 16 years and being made fun of by classmates, Jodi meets Stig, a seemingly perfect Swedish foreign exchange student who's even taller than she is.
"Jodi's new crush turns her world upside down and throws her into a surprising love triangle, but with the help of her two best friends as well as her beauty queen sister Harper, Jodi comes to realise that she's far more than her insecurities about her appearance have led her to believe."
Touted by Netflix as a "heartfelt" and "hilarious coming-of-age story", the film has instead been ridiculed online with many mocking the fact the "tall girl" is only 185cm.

Ok the tall girl movie is fake news because I went to High school with a girl who was 6’2” and she had a new man every month. Fake. News.— Audrey Heartburn (@CaveHag) September 14, 2019
I'm watching "tall girl" and... She's 185 cm... She's tall but the 80% of italian boys are 180cm or taller so.... Are American boys Hobbits or smth?— captain sad (@strangerbean) September 15, 2019
IN THE TALL GIRL MOVIE THEY WENT OUT OF THEIR WAY TO CAST A SHORT SUPPORTING CAST. THE DAD IS 5’7” THE MOM IS 5’1” THE FRIEND IS 5’7” THE OTHER FRIEND IS 5’5” SHE IS NOT A TALL GIRL SHE JUST LIVES IN A SHORT WORLD. why do we punish her for our sins— nicole boyce (@nicolewboyce) September 15, 2019

I feel like the movie #TallGirl came about when some movie exec was like, “Someone make a movie for my tall daughter. She is feeling ‘othered’”— Nakkiah Lui (@nakkiahlui) September 15, 2019
tall girl was such a bad movie they made her ONLY 6 ft and there were no guys in her whole high school taller than her? where tf was the basketball team? did no guys go thru puberty? also why is she letting a girl shorter than her bully her? just step on her! dunk on her one time— shy (@ShyIalala) September 16, 2019
I'm watching Tall Girl and it's so ridiculous. She says "you don't know how hard it is to be me" and then goes home to her two parents in their multi-story house to eat a 3 course meal— Cheese (@wizardgaz) September 14, 2019
i think the worst thing about tall girl is that shes not even that tall. shes 6’1 shes NOT THAT TALL— emma (@emmuhjoy) September 17, 2019
