Constance: My mom told me that my dad was doing an assignment in like, um, Rwanda - I don't know, some place like that - and he accidentally stood on a landmine. She said the first he he thought was, I can't photograph this, it's under my foot. So he took out a pencil and paper and made notes about it and all. You know, to have in case you had to write an essay on it or something. And then he counted to three, and jumped off. And the mine never went off. He told my mom not to tell me about it...

The only reason to see this film...Ellen Muth
28 September 2005 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

The only good thing about the film was Ellen Muth. She gave a great performance and is such a pleasure to watch. This was one of her first films and you can tell how much of natural she is in front of the camera. She was the reason I watched the film in the first place.

I saw this film over the weekend and it was dreadful. I found most of the scenes to be rather...how can I put it...pointless? The story was weak to begin with and they tried to move the story along by inserting these random scenes that didn't seem to go anywhere. I haven't felt this cheated on since high school. And I'm referring to my girlfriend cheating on me junior year with her ex-boyfriend. Her excuse was, "It's not cheating if it's with an ex." That makes a lot of sense. Dumb broad. I heard she got fat now anyhow. Karma baby!

Anyways........the actor who played the father of this film gave a poor performance. I felt like he was overacting. I'm surprised because I've seen this actor in OZ and he was quite good. So maybe it was bad directing. Who knows.

I wouldn't recommend this film unless you are in a fraternity and need a film to play on a continuous loop for the pledges during hell week.
