Troubled teens have trouble with other troubled teens
25 April 2000 | by (Broken Bow, Oklahoma) – See all my reviews

Another in a long line of low budget, predictable teen movies. A group of nice kids rent a building from a skid row bum who claims to be in possession of the domicile. Of course, he lied. They work hard to turn it into a rock club, but are ousted by a local repo company run by a smarmy thug and his imbecile boys. Things come to a head when the teens learn they can have the property back if they re-install the bum into his living quarters on the place before a certain date. This film should appeal to young teens, but me, I thought it was a total waste of time.
