Actually, not bad!
13 October 2005 | by (Brisbane, Australia) – See all my reviews

When my friend and I bought this out of sheer curiosity, we weren't really expecting anything other than poorly filmed soft-core porn. Well, it's visually pretty grainy, and the voices are badly dubbed, but it's not really that much different from most other teen films today except for the fact that it doesn't try to be anything other than what it is; a teen comedy with a bit of female nudity. The two leads were nice to look at and, despite the campy feeling, most emotions on screen were realistic and palatable.

It's not a Scorsese but it's worth a look if you're bored or really like teen movies.

Not bad at all.
