One standout performance in the entire film!
26 April 2004 | by (Clearwater, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is a pretty silly movie that looks like it took them about 3 weeks to write the script, hire the actors, film it and then edit it. In spite of how unbelievably bad this movie is, there is one fine performance by this tall blond that transcends the movie's lameness. Next time you see this movie, check out the blond in the pool scene. She gives a heartfelt and outstanding performance that seems out of place in a trashy movie like this. The credits only list her as Sally, but her performance will leave you feeling as if Sally is an old friend that you haven't heard from in years and wish you knew better. It's a real pity that the actress hasn't done more because I'd love to see what other richly nuanced performances are lurking around inside of her. I mean, in this movie, when she delivered her line, I really believed that there was a phone call for Pappy! You don't get acting performances with that much integrity in movies now-a-days!
