You never appreciate how smartly written Lena Dunham’s Girls is until you watch a mediocre variation on the same theme. Fort Tilden, the debut picture from writer-directors Sarah-Violet Bliss and Charles Rogers (with co-writer Brian Lannin), is also an irreverent comedy about 20-something women struggling to get their lives started in Brooklyn. But this new film suffers from uninteresting, unlikable characters, from half-hearted, predictable jokes, and from dull, unimaginative visuals.
