Worth Checking Out.
30 May 2000 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

This was a really good movie. Considering it is a Canadian indie film, and not a big studio commercial production, it is well done. The story is interesting, characters are funny, and they drive cool cars. The photography looked really good, and there were some shots (like the fireworks on the sunset, and the opening credits) that are very well done. The only problem I have with the actors is Ms. Berkley, who doesn't do a very good job convincing me she's a drug queen...all I can think of is Saved by the Bell. Denise Richards looks great as always, and her acting is much more convincing than some of her other flix. The soundtrack is alright, and the subtle humor made me smile. If you like smaller budget films, this is a great one to check out. One of the best movies I've seen this year.
