exploited delinquent film
7 February 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie wasn't very exciting nor was the acting in it as well. I had picked this movie up at a pawn shop while I was buying strings for my guitar and decided to watch it because I had heard Marilyn Monroe was in it. It was the typical teenage movie where it displays the slums looking like San Francisco and made the teenagers all have New York accents and bad attitudes. I felt I was robbed when I noticed that Marilyn had a bit part in the movie and her name was called only once. I despise movies that promise the settings will be better the plot doesn't move you at all. The scriptwriter doesn't know how to write anything. This movie really should of stayed back in the pawn shop where I first found it.
