Wah Do Dem

2 out of 5 stars

Time Out says

2 out of 5 stars

Dumped by his girlfriend (Jones) right before their cruise vacation to Jamaica, Brooklynite Max (Bones) decides to go anyway; soon, he’s cavorting with mystics and ass-shaking to dancehall music. Though neither the movie’s stranded-tourist paranoia nor its exoticization of island culture reaches an intolerable level of toxicity, Wah Do Dem doesn’t make much of its hipster-abroad journey either. Just because your microbudget Amerindie movie was partially filmed in the Caribbean doesn’t make it immune to mumblecore-ish pitfalls; like its hapless hero, Wah Do Dem simply mopes along before aimlessly stumbling to a halt.—David Fear
