A popular girl on campus, Charlotte, attends a wild party while her boyfriend Wesley is out of town. When she realizes she has become too drunk, she leaves the party. But Jim, who she danced with at the party soon joins her and she becomes forced into a sexual encounter. Feeling ashamed and self-blame, it is difficult for her to find the courage to speak out. When she does, many of her friends do not believe her. Meanwhile, Jim honestly does not think what happened that night was rape. But as members of his own fraternity and campus feminist groups begin to unpiece the grey areas, the ensuing experience challenges the trust and friendship of college students who thought they would be friends forever.

OK Movie
24 September 2001 | by (NJ) – See all my reviews

The movie isn't terrible, but it doesn't exactly stand out in my mind as a masterpiece of film making either. Let's be honest, the main reason most people are going out to rent this movie is for the chance to see Holly Marie Combs in her one and only nude scene. And while they are nice to look at, you only see her breasts on screen for about 5 or 6 seconds. It's a middle of the road movie for me, I give it a 5 out of 10.
