After their alibi is busted, three girls spin a whopper of a lie to keep from getting in trouble with their parents.
Harmless shows what happens when a lie becomes bigger than the people who told it. The problem was that I had a lot of trouble empathizing with the girls who told the lie, because it’s so massively awful that I can’t believe they actually came up with it. And the stakes for getting caught just didn’t seem worth it, so I had a lot of trouble feeling sorry for them as they worked through the repercussions of the lie. The characters weren’t strong enough to keep me interested on that basis, either.
