low budget, nothing new
18 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

i'm gonna give it to ya straight...a low-budget, poorly filmed, plodding, boring movie. nothing really happens and you don't care. although i like the leads in other things there's just nothing special about them here. the characters and situations are so stupidly unreal you roll your eyes. both the lead characters are so whiny and pouty about their lives you don't really want to see them happy. people do complete personality changes-sluts become monogamous, weak people become strong without any reason or meaning. technically the film looks like it was shot with a camcorder and a flashlight. there's much better stuff out there that's along these same lines. keep looking.
