Scattered and strange story
2 August 2013 | by (Pasadena, ca) – See all my reviews

No spoilers here. Im watching it right now, streaming it on Netflix. I have different feelings about the movie because it feels like a mish mosh. The WRITING, I notice, is smart. The writer was evidently attempting to add intellect into the film. Most of the actors are terrible, which is PROBABLY why anyone watching this film would rate it as "awful" or terrible. I noticed that Sam Trammell is in it, from "True blood" and he does full frontal nudity, which is entertaining in of itself and had me laughing out loud. He has a desire to be with the next door older woman who is a friend of his mothers. He fulfills that desire. The sex is not believable and I don't see any kind of passion between them, so I liken their intensity to a hand massage at a massage parlor in Van Nuys. Trammell is baby faced and unbelievably young looking which emits another laugh from me.. and for his fans, this is an interesting movie to watch. His character though, isn't that likable.. he is portrayed by his character as a bright kid but somewhat selfish. I wonder where they got most of these actors who seem to want to drop their clothes at a moments notice (also amusing) and I wonder if any of them have been in porn films. LOLOLOL I watch a lot of movies so I am not very impressed by most of what I see. I am American and American movies tend to be very disappointing to me. Nevertheless I give everything a fair shake.

Worth the watch if you love True Blood. LOL! I don't think that the writer had a good grasp where to go with the story. The writing doesn't flow. Its EXTREMELY disjointed and staccato. Take that for what its worth, if you can understand what I mean by that.
