In Simon's eyes, his high-powered businessman father Matt wasted no time in remarrying his stepmother Lauren, a woman with a perfect facade whom he suspects of having an affair with Matt long before his mother's demise.

It seems this film had only a limited release and should have reached a much larger audience. I would guess bad decisions were made by the studio. While I initially expected this to be a mindless teen film (Tara Reid?), it turned out to be very serious, yet light hearted when it mattered. All of the actors, including Ms Reid turned in impressive performances, but the true star was Trace, played by Colman Domingo. Mr Domingo provided depth in his character that will ensure that he has a bright future on the big screen. His confidence with the role was further impressive after viewing the DVD interview where he states that his actual personality is opposite of Trace's. Tara Reid proved that she can play beyond the high-school popular girl. Devon Sawa was a little flat in his role and I was constantly distracted by his bad wig. Rent this movie though, it is worth your time.
