Quotes

Christie: You think everything is that easy. You just hop in your little sports car and you forget it all. You've had your whole life handed to you on a silver platter. Everything comes easy for you. It's easy for you to get into Harvard, you're captain of the football team, you've never had to work. And now all of a sudden you go around picking on people because you think you're chosen; you're going to decide who's good and who's bad.

OK movie but fun due to early stages of actors
12 September 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I not only have seen this movie, I was an extra in it in about 15 scenes. I think Keanu Reeves was a bad actor then and hasn't got much better since. It's a fun movie to see as there are many actors and actresses just starting out their careers. Just don't expect any Oscar performances except for the extra who says, "No". He is amazing. The plot is fairly weak but it was only a made for TV movie in the first place so you don't expect too much anyway. The movie is filmed in Santa Cruz County in California. Lost Boys was also filmed here and was a much better movie with quite a cult following. Kiefer Sutherland was in both movies. I would recommend this movie to watch just to see everyone in their first stages of acting.
