Who cares?
5 April 2001 | by (Melbourne) – See all my reviews

Parochial, self-conscious, suburban drivel concerning an overbaked theme and presented by amateurish new actors together with a few worn-out small-pond veterans. Budget was low, and production gives the impression that the crew spent more time looking in a mirror than making a film. This film has been almost totally forgotten for good reasons.
