Mind numbing boredom in the guise of a poorly written romance - I would need to go back to school for an English degree to be able to capture in words how truly awful this film was. If there was any justice, everyone involved with this turd would be fined and black listed from Hollywood. I think the overall premise was that Trovalta's career was hot and a lot of hormonally charged girls would flock to see anything he was in. I had the misfortune to see this film when it first came out. I was dragged there by a cute girl who was a Trovalta fanatic. Even she was yawning midway through. The only scene I remember enjoying was at an art exhibit. They took a few well aimed shots at what sometimes passes for art. Kind of ironic since this thing was anything but art.
