This is a good one
17 August 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this today on Lifetime Movie Network. Nice to see James Marsden! Before he became famous! James Marsden and Shane Meier basically stole the spotlight as the bad boys. They are clever, especially for high school boys, and their performers made them convincing.

It's also nice to see a fictional married couple played by a real married couple. That would be Jill Eikenberry and Michael Tucker! Personally, I thought Michael Tucker was too over the top. I know that's how he should be, given the plot and what his character goes through, but he just came across as a grouchy old man. And Jill Eikenberry underacted. I still felt for her character, but she was very wooden. I've seen her other work,and she tends to be a lot better. Still, both actors tried, and they do have a nice chemistry. As they should, since they are married in real life! So, eight stars for the amazing plot, characters, the chemistry between the married couple, and the acting from James Marsden and Shane Meier!
