A Young-Adult Middle Class and clashful Love triangle.
22 December 2002 | by (Buffalo,N.Y. US of A) – See all my reviews

First off, the Plot Outline about this movie is totally wrong. It's nothing to do with evil mutants killing college students.

This movie is a look into the past (skeletons in the closet) arising slowly out of a trouble-some woman ; in a marriage who don't know what she wants. Her husband, played by Zach G., of 'Gremlins' fame, is a meek,quiet brother of his oldest brother : a more street wise man, returning in his life after a few years. With his return, he must encounter his younger brothers wife, once his close lady. The rest you must see. I thought it was a fairly good flick. Something you'd see once or twice with your girl eating popcorn and rubbing each others cold feet in front of a wall-based flat screen , pixel- happy television set. Got it?LOL!
