Requires more than one sitting to get through this ?!?!
7 December 1998 | by (Florida) – See all my reviews

No plot. No story. And not much acting. Pointless scenes of drug use, band concerts, motorcycle riding, and a lot of worthless dialogue made me wanna dive head first off my balcony. Thank goodness my friend wanted to check in on the football game that was on TV, so we could stop this movie, often, very often and watch some of the game. As a HUGE Mark Dacascas fan.. this is very disappointing. Much like the Crow TV series.
