Start with the title....
15 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

and go from there. Is this a comedy?. Apparently.

If you had a really bad day at work, you may want to watch this as it is so unrealistic it will have you laughing. Of course, Tori Spelling and Ivan Sergei (recently in "The Break Up") have laughed all the way to the bank, why shouldn't we?.

Ivan Sergei is a young obsessive man who resents college students, and cannot handle being dumped, so he retaliates and murders the first girlfriend who dumps him. He assumes a young med students identity and meets Laurel (Tori Spelling) who is, (according to this film ) every man's dream. Perfect, athletic intelligent and industrious too. (I told you you would be laughing!).

Also, Lisa Banes (the embarrassingly older woman from "Cocktail" who was dumped by a young Tom Cruise) portrays Laurel's mother, who has no money but drives a Jaguar, and buys take-out catered food so she can meet Laurels' boyfriends. Ah, only in Hollywood. She suspects something is wrong with Sergei, but can't pinpoint the problem.

Eventually she suspects something is amiss with the Sergei character, so she visits the Denver police, who disclose any and all pertinent information (Yeah, okay....). Meanwhile, back on campus, Laurel is abducted by Sergei, who cannot bear to be apart from her for one minute. He brings her to an isolated cabin where much wine is consumed.

Next pivotal plot line:... Voila....somehow through the use of a Triple A membership, Laurel's mother finds her, as she was abducted by the obsessive and psychotic boyfriend (Sergei), and the mother was right all along.

Sorry to be facetious, but I will have to look up the screenplay for this, I think whoever wrote this was having a nice joke on us all. Seriously, if you are at home alone with the flu, this movie will give you a laugh, so it may be something you can tolerate for an hour or so.
