I watched it 2000 on tv.


-This girl was someking of a runaway/criminal , then kills or neutralizes another girl(at a car crash I think),as they look the same ,the baddie assumes her identity wich I think she was rich or famous and then she pretends to be her by living her lavish life.

-I can’t remember any actors

-It was definitely american(in English) made between 1980-2000 I guess

-I dont think it was a big cinema hit,prob a medium budget one

  1. In “The Pretty One,” Jenée LaMarque’s first feature, Zoe Kazan plays identical twins of contrasting temperament. Audrey, alluded to in the title, has a cute haircut, fashionable clothes and an exciting life in a city that might be Los Angeles. (The film is too coy to be specific about such things.) Her sister, Laurel, mousy and odd, lives with their widowed father (John Carroll Lynch) in a rambling house in a quirky town where she helps him paint copies of famous artworks.

    Then, as a result of a not-very-convincing car crash, Audrey dies and Laurel, mistaken for her sister, assumes her identity. She goes to the city, meets Audrey’s married lover (Ron Livingston) and her bookish neighbor (Jake M. Johnson) and takes up Audrey’s job selling real estate. The imposture is clumsy and tentative, which Laurel blames on amnesia from the accident.

    “The Pretty One” is intermittently charming, occasionally touching and entirely lacking in credibility. The script, in which self-consciously playful banter gives way to sudden floods of loud feeling, might have worked better as a string of emoji. Neither the comedy nor the melodrama works on its own terms, and Ms. LaMarque’s attempt to blend them is more awkward than bittersweet. The camera setups are as passive-aggressively deadpan as the dialogue, alternating between static wide shots and too-tight close-ups.

    The performances are not bad, though. Ms. Kazan, frantic and vulnerable, tries to keep Laurel/Audrey away from the clichés that lie in wait for her (them?) like ogres in a fairy tale. As an actress, she is always looking for new, appealing ways to be odd, and she’s good at finding them. Mr. Johnson, moonlighting from his grumpy goofball role on “New Girl,” seems to be refining a new millennial romantic archetype: the stoic, shaggy dream guy
