Tall Girl 2 Review—What Works
In Tall Girl 2, we meet back up with Jodi Kreyman (Ava Michelle) as she struggles between her newfound popularity from Tall Girl and her relationship with Jack Dunkleman, a.k.a Dunks (Griffin Gluck). While Tall Girl focused heavily on her height, Tall Girl 2 follows more of a traditional coming-of-age story, including tackling topics such as self-doubt & anxiety and trying to conquer those fears.
At one point in the film, Harper tells Jodi, “There’s no worse bully than the one you create in your own head.” We can all relate to imposter syndrome in some way.
Overall, Tall Girl 2 seems to accomplish what it sets out to do for the most part. Being popular only gets you so far. Being comfortable in your own skin is part of the battle. Regardless of how popular or put together, you are, there will always be something nagging at you, a little voice inside your head trying to bring you down.
